Indoor Air Quality Handbook Indoor Air Quality Handbook 3 Unwanted contaminants move from areas of relative positive pressure to those of relative negative pressure through a path of least resistance. Consider pollutant "pathways" which allow airborne gases and particles to migrate to different areas of the building.

Indoor Air Quality Indoor air quality (IAQ) is a growing concern today. Concern with energy conservation has made building construction nearly airtight, which, in turn, has made proper ventilation more important than ever.

People today are spending the majority of their lives indoors, more than 90% of the time according to the EPA.This book is especially suited for training people with different interests and backgrounds (e.g. students, indoor air specialists, hygienists, lab technicians, academics).
