2006 (English)In: Healthy Buildings, 4-8 June, Lisbon, Portugal, 2006: Vol IV, Finland: International Society of Indoor Air Quality and Climate (ISIAQ) , 2006, 421-424 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
This paper was mainly based on a literature review and focused on control of emissions and on thermal comfort conditions in office buildings. The ultimate goal was to identify optimal conditions for both human health and work productivity in office room environments. Good indoor air quality (IAQ) was to be achieved at low emission rates and correct indoor air temperature. Different ventilation and air conditioning strategies were evaluated and compared. Both energy and environmental aspects were considered. Analyses were made for emission rates of various indoor sources such as outdoor pollution, construction materials, furnishings, office-equipment and consumer products.
