The peak electrical demand of office building VAV systems will be reduced by about 1.2 Kw/1000 Ft2 by employing an Integrated Systems Demand Control Technology (ISDCT) sequence to reduce peak intake flow by about 56%.Supply, return, and exhaust fa

Between 200,000 to 300,000 manufactured homes are built to the US Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Manufactured Home Construction and Safety Standards (MHCSS) in the US each year.

In the 1990's, concern about global warming has resulted in a resurgence of interest in naturally ventilated offices. The Belgian climate is particularly well adapted to apply cooling by natural ventilation.

During the last 20 years, the humidity sensitive ventilation system evolved to products increasingly simplified thus standardised.

For energy savings, DCV systems are more and more used in ventilation systems but toestimate their energy savings, variation of occupation in the building (in time and number ofperson) must be estimated.
Bernard A.M., Villenave J.G., Lemaire M.C.
Increasing emphasis on energy-efficiency has many jurisdictions enacting stricter energy codes.

The building envelope is primarily an environmental separator, which allows indoor spaces to bemaintained at different conditions from the outside environment.
Pasqualini P., O’Malley L.
In France, in non residential buildings, these systems are generally controlled by either a CO2 sensor or optical movement detection (infrared).The part of the study we present here was to determine :- laboratory tests methods to assess the perfor

The knowledge of indoor air humidity in the design phase is important to decide on the appropriate moisture control measures to prevent moisture problems in building components.
Janssens A., Hens H.
In highly insulated residential buildings, complying with the Passive House Standard, the space heat demand can be covered by air heating at air flow rates given by air quality requirements, without the need for additional air re-circulation or fo
Dorer V., Haas A.
Ventilation and comfort assessment of buildings is not a new practice in post occupancy evaluation (POE) of buildings.

Effective weather resistive barriers (WRB) perform important functions in retarding waterentry into walls and in controlling water vapor movement as well as the amount of energyattributed to air leakage (Burnett, 2000; Weston et al 2001).

The use of natural ventilation systems continues to be a popular feature in low energy, sustainable building design.
Sharples S., Chilengwe N.
The Norwegian Building Research Institute (NBI) has completed a study of the performance of balanced residential ventilation systems with heat recovery (HRVs) in Norway.
