Both new and existing homes require mechanical ventilation to maintain indoor air quality. There are many reasons why ventilation is more important today than it has been historically. Houses today are much less leaky than older houses that also had little to no insulation, and plenty of gaps and cracks. Many older homes are also being weatherized or having atmospheric drafting combustion appliances replaced with direct vent units resulting in significantly reducing the amount of air exchange. But even with a leaky house, we can’t count on getting enough fresh air exchange when temperatures are mild and there are no pressure differentials across the envelope. Today we also bring products in our homes that contain volatile organic compounds (VOCs) such as formaldehyde, flame retardants, and other chemicals from composite wood, carpeting, and foam products. While we used to spend more time outside, we are now spending nearly 90% of our time indoors with most of that time in our homes, where pollutants can be 2 to 5 times greater than outdoors. Come learn about compliance with ASHRAE Standard 62.2-2013/16 Ventilation and Acceptable Indoor Air Quality in Low-Rise Residential Buildings and the types of whole house ventilation systems including exhaust or supply only and balanced systems.
