Abstract: In this paper, the performance of Belgian building code compliant residential ventilation systems is evaluated on multiple performance indicators: occupant exposure to bio-effluents, occupant exposure to other use-related pollutants (odours) and occupant exposure to building material emissions. The fitness of the proposed criteria in this context is As stated above, it proposes a fixed flow rate per room, depending on the use of the space. These are summarized in Table 1. Table 1 ‘Nominal flow rates’ in the Belgian residential ventilation standard ROOM TYPE FLOW RATE MIN / MAX then discussed in a broader context and this information is then used to interpret the fitness of the code prescriptions as design criteria for performant ventilation systems.
