ABSTRACT
Analyzes the impact of weather on utility costs. Effect of outdoor air ventilation on the building's ventilation requirement; Role of the ventilation load index (VLI) in providing a tool for determining the latent ventilation energy consumption; Example of how VLI data can be used to compare utility bills; Availability of an online software that generates VLI data.
