Abstract

Some critical issues related to indoor-air-quality (IAQ) are presented along with their salient solutions. Some contemporary indoor-air-quality problems affecting the health and comfort of occupants and the progresses made towards laws and legislations related to IAQ are also presented. The development of 62.2 and 62.1 versions of the ANSI/ASHRAE Standard 62, Ventilation for Acceptable Indoor Air quality, which covers low-rise residential buildings in particular, and all buildings, respectively, are discussed. The developments made on technologies such as ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI), electrostatic filters, and gas-phase air cleaners, are also discussed.
