Benefits of Proper Building Ventilation

Proper ventilation of a building has numerous benefits, such as creating a healthier and more comfortable environment, reducing the risk of IAQ-related liability, improving the well-being of occupants, and demonstrating proactive IAQ management. Ventilation requirements vary depending on building use, occupancy levels, schedules, activities, and health concerns. A well-ventilated building helps control moisture, reducing the likelihood of mold growth and structural damage. ASHRAE Standard 62.2 specifies ventilation rates according to the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air-Conditioning Engineers guidelines.

Reduce IAQ liability

Increase productivity

Improve occupant health


A well-ventilated building can significantly reduce Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) liability in several ways. Ensuring a steady supply of fresh outdoor air, reducing the concentration of indoor pollutants like volatile organic compounds (VOCs), allergens, and particulate matter, leading to cleaner and healthier indoor environments. Dilution ventilation removes harmful contaminants, decreasing the likelihood of health issues such as respiratory problems, allergies, and sick building syndrome, lowering the risk of occupants filing health-related complaints or lawsuits. Comfortable and healthy indoor environments contribute to higher occupant satisfaction and productivity. Well-ventilated buildings often employ airflow measurement stations. Airflow measurement stations provide valuable data on IAQ, validating clean air delivery rates and ensuring a healthy indoor environment. Proper airflow measurement and documentation can be essential in reducing potential legal responsibility.


Multiple government and private studies show that improving indoor environment can increase productivity by 5-10%. In non-manufacturing sectors, workers’ salaries and benefits costs are up to 100 times higher than energy costs.* HVAC instrumentation and ventilation control can enhance productivity and reduce energy by providing dynamic intake control. EBTRON’s airflow measuring stations and CENsus occupancy counter verify the the spaces recieve accurate and reliable ventilation.


The ventilation system will eventually be compromised due to a shortage of fresh outdoor air or problems with air distribution. As a result contributes to discomfort, health problems, and reduced productivity. The building’s ventilation system is crucial in maintaining a healthy and comfortable indoor environment. Airflow measurement technologies are crucial in ensuring outdoor air intakes are continuously monitored and the ventilation delivered is consistent with the design and operational intent. Relying on a building’s operation to remain unchanged over time or modifications to the building can often lead to subpar performance, which can be avoided by employing proper instrumentation.
