Bioclimatic Passive Design
Air Quality and Occupancy Health
A building has to be a place that comfortable and healthy for its occupants since people do nearly all of their activities inside a building. One of the aspects that affect human’s health and comfort is air quality. The air quality is talking about what kinds of pollutant contained in the air and also how much air infiltrate the building.
There are a lot of air pollutants as we mention some of them are harmful volatile organic compound or micron-size glass shards that can give negative impact on human’s health.
The other important aspect is the volume of air intake has to comply with local regulation. The requirements of air intake volume depends on occupant’s activity. Therefore, we need to ensure that air infiltration design meet the requirement.
Those two are the things that we need to think about as we design a good air quality system in a building.
