Evaluating Ventilation Systems & IAQ

CCHRC, through a grant from Alaska Housing Finance Corporation, contracted with Alaska Building Science Network (ABSN) to monitor 100 relatively new homes in 3 different climatic regions in Alaska (Anchorage/Matsu, Juneau, and Fairbanks). Monitoring consisted of relative humidity, particulates, and VOC’s.

The goal of this study was to provide an evaluation of the extent to which various factors, including ventilation strategies, house characteristics and location, and occupant usage affect indoor air quality. ABSN obtained 13 CO data loggers from the Municipality of Anchorage and included Benzene in their testing.
