The article focuses on the relationship between the ventilation systems and the energy efficiency of a building. Energy wastage is affected by the energy used to condition the air and by the occupancy level of a building. One way of ensuring a cost effective way of ventilating a building while maintaining the maximum indoor air quality is by using demand control ventilation (DVC) method.
