1. IAQ and Energy Impacts of Ventilation and Source Control in a Big Box Retail Building
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 6/10/2015
Authors: Lisa C Ng, Andrew Keith Persily, Steven J Emmerich
Abstract: Heating, ventilating, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems in buildings are designed to provide thermally comfortable conditions and to maintain acceptable indoor air quality (IAQ). At the same time, the operating costs of HVAC systems are often a lar ...

4. Indoor Air Quality in High-Performing Building Case Studies: Got Data?
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 5/12/2015
Authors: Kevin Yale Teichman, Andrew Keith Persily, Steven J Emmerich
Abstract: In this paper, we review how indoor air quality (IAQ) has been addressed in case studies of high-performing buildings (HPBs), specifically the case studies described in ASHRAE‰s ,High Performing BuildingsŠ magazine. We find that nearly all of the re ...

6. CONTAM To EnergyPlus Infiltration Features of the CONTAM Results Export Tool
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1873
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 3/30/2015
Authors: Brian J Polidoro, Lisa C Ng, William S Dols, Steven J Emmerich, Andrew Keith Persily
Abstract: As building envelope performance and HVAC equipment efficiencies continue to be improved to reduce building energy use, a greater percentage of the total energy loss of a building can occur through envelope leakage. Although the energy impacts of ...
