Residential Ventilation and Energy Characteristics *

  title={Residential Ventilation and Energy Characteristics *},
  author={Max H. Sherman and Nance Matson},
The role of ventilation in the housing stock is to provide fresh air and to dilute internally-generated pollutants in order to assure adequate indoor air quality. Energy is required to provide this ventilation service, either directly for moving the air or indirectly for conditioning the outdoor air for thermal comfort. Different kinds of ventilation systems have different energy requirements. Existing dwellings in the United States are ventilated primarily through leaks in the building shell… CONTINUE READING
