The article presents assessments showing how the ventilation of a commercial building can provide a healthy environment. It concludes that the point regarding measuring parameters to improve indoor-air quality (IAQ) while minimizing the associated energy use boils down to maximizing the quality of the data monitoring of ventilation and moisture management performance. It is required to test and measure IAQ parameters.
