Title Indoor air quality in office buildings
Bibliographic information July 1983, Vol.4, No.3, p.103-118. Illus. 29 ref.
Abstract The environmental factors affecting indoor quality and ventilation standards are discussed (ventilation, indoor and outdoor pollution, energy conservation measures, floor plan modifications, atmospheric conditions). CO2 is considered to be a more sensitive indicator than oxygen deficiency for the quantity of fresh air required. The major problem seems to be one of comfort rather than exposure to harmful air contaminants.
