IAQ & Healthy Homes

2018 HPC National Conference Session

IAQ in High Performance Homes

Wednesday, April 25
1:30 PM - 3:00 PM
Location: Salon D (5th Floor)

Stringent ventilation and airtightness requirements are becoming commonplace in the high performance homes industry, and green building rating systems are encouraging and sometimes requiring various IAQ provisions. Do these challenging requirements guarantee acceptable indoor air quality? How important are source control, ventilation and air cleaning equipment in comparison to occupant awareness? How important is commissioning? Are some controls more robust than others? What are the most important sources of IAQ problems? This session will present results from lab and field studies including a recent survey of new homes in California.
