Turk et al. (b, ) reported ventilation measurements made in six non‐complaint schools in the US Northwest – two in Portland, Oregon and four in Spokane, Washington. Schools ranged from 3–25 years in age, 1–3 stories; all had mechanical ventilation systems of some type.

Ventilation rates, calculated on a whole building volume basis, ranged from l/s‐person to 31 l/s‐://   Efforts to improve energy efficiency in homes and buildings have led to tighter structures. However, these changes can also produce negative consequences for indoor air quality and human health.

One of the dramatic effects of climate change and weather is the increase in destructive wildfires, such as those experienced in the Pacific Northwest during the summer of   Airflow and Indoor Air Quality Models of DOE Prototype Commercial Buildings [Lisa C.

In typically cold areas, barn and arena combinations are actually quite the norm. Many horse riders and trainers find it convenient to build horse arenas on their property, particularly if they have several horses for sale at any given time or have to travel to Heating, ventilating, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems in buildings are designed to provide thermally comfortable conditions and to maintain acceptable indoor air quality (IAQ).

At the same time, the operating costs of HVAC systems are often a large percentage of the total energy consumption of buildings, which constitutes 40% of the primary Standards and Guidelines for Indoor Air Quality: There are currently no Federal government standards for PM in school indoor air environments.

Results of the survey suggest that occupants are concerned about indoor air quality, believe fresh air is important for health, and would install the same ventilation systems again (Devine, ).

The industry likes the term 'vent-free' when talking about gas fireplaces that keep all the exhaust gases in your home. I prefer the term 'ventless' or, even better, 'unvented.' Not a huge deal, but the ventless gas industry wants you to feel that you're being liberated of a burden by not having an exhaust vent.
