TightVent Europe newsletter issue #08 - May 2015

Share this Post:

The March QUALICHeCK workshop in Lund—co-organised with TightVent—was a good occasion to witness the progress made in the Member States to foster better envelope and ductwork airtightness and better ventilation system performance. Regulation is clearly the strongest driver, and gets even stronger with converging private initiatives; however, the successful Swedish experience with airtight ductwork and quality ventilation systems shows that it is not the only route to consider. The workshop also discussed the roles of research, standards, product development, dissemination, and policies to positively influence the ventilation and airtightness markets. This newsletter aims to gives snapshots of recent initiatives in these fields.
