Introduction
Indoor air quality is controlled by the human released contaminations such as CO and CO2 levels. The ventilation system is usually needed to supply fresh and circulated air to meet the occupants’ human thermal comfort in the spaces. Due to increase demand for cooling loads in residential and commercial buildings and due to energy conservation and energy consumption optimization purposes, more circulated air can be used to cut the energy bills used for cooling and ventilation purposes. However, this might lead to adverse effects on the air quality being supplied into the space and on the occupants’ health. Many HVAC systems are currently moving towards intermittent air supply where the air is supplied intermittently to maintain a certain temperature regardless of the number of occupants present, the level of CO2, and the quality of air. This special issue invites papers to discuss the intermittent ventilation system and its effects on the indoor air quality (IAQ) and human health. Comparison of the contamination level accumulation inside a controlled environment during normal ventilation conditions (peak ventilation) and intermittent conditions is needed to understand the limitation of the intermittent supply mechanism and its effects on human health. Other topics of interest are occupancy based ventilation system which adjusts the cooling load based on the number of occupants present. This later technique is more applicable in space where the number of occupants does not change frequently over a certain period of time such as in office spaces and movie theaters where the number of occupancy can be predicted and detected unlike other more frequently changing populated spaces such as in malls and airports.
