Task Group recommends action to tackle ventilation and indoor air quality in new homes
A Zero Carbon Hub – led Task Group concludes that much work needs to be done to ensure good performance of Mechanical Ventilation with Heat Recovery (MVHR) systems in people’s homes.
Reinforcing findings of the Interim Report published in January 2012 and drawing on available evidence, the Ventilation and Indoor Air Quality (VIAQ) Task Group recommends that concerted Government – led action should be taken to develop and promote good practice and to ensure public health and safety with new research informing future Building Regulation requirements.
