Indoor Air Institute
The Indoor Air Institute was formed in 2005 as an independent and unbiased organization to provide high quality, impartial, and relevant contributions to salient scientific and public policy questions concerning the indoor environment. All results from efforts undertaken by the Indoor Air Institute are made available not only to the sponsors, but also to other key decision-makers, the scientific community, and the public.

ASHRAE Standard 62.1-2007 Ventilation for Acceptable Indoor Air Quality
The purpose of this standard is to specify minimum ventilation rates and other measures intended to provide indoor air quality that is acceptable to human occupants and that minimizes adverse health effects. You can preview the Standard here.
ASHRAE Standard 62.2-2007 Ventilation and Acceptable Indoor Air Quality in Low-Rise Residential Buildings
This standard defines the roles of and minimum requirements for mechanical and natural ventilation systems and the building envelope intended to provide acceptable indoor air quality in low-rise residential buildings. You can preview the Standard here.
ASHRAE Standard 62-2001
This standard is the predecessor to the current versions, 62.1-2007 and 62.2-2007 and is available free at the link provided. The purpose of this standard is to specify minimum ventilation rates and indoor air quality that will be acceptable to human occupants and are intended to minimize the potential for adverse health effects.
AIVC - Air Infiltration and Ventilation Centre
The AIVC offers industry and research organizations technical support aimed at optimizing ventilation technology. They offer a range of services and facilities, including comprehensive database on literature standards, and ventilation data. They also produce a series of guides and technical notes. The Centre holds annual conferences and workshops and publishes a quarterly newsletter, Air Information Review.
Fact Sheet: Ventilation and Air Quality in Offices
Millions of Americans work in buildings with mechanical heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning (HVAC) systems; these systems are designed to provide air at comfortable temperature and humidity levels, free of harmful concentrations of air pollutants. While heating and air-conditioning are relatively straightforward operations, the more complex processes involved in ventilation are the most important in determining the quality of our indoor air.
School Advanced Ventilation Engineering Software (SAVES)
The School Advanced Ventilation Engineering Software (SAVES) package is a tool to help school designers assess the potential financial payback and indoor humidity control benefits of Energy Recovery Ventilation (ERV) systems for school applications.
