Ventilation Systems for Multi-Unit Residential Buildings: Performance Requirements and Alternative Approaches
Multi-unit residential buildings (MURBs) represent a significant and growing proportion of housing in Canada. While there have been many advances in building technologies, ventilation strategies have not changed significantly over the past three decades. Existing ventilation systems are unsatisfactory in most aspects. This project established reasonable ventilation rates and related performance parameters. Four possible alternative systems were analyzed for benefits and drawbacks. Most are still in their early stages of development and will need more research, but the housing industry can help support these alternative approaches.
