The AIVC (Air Infiltration and Ventilation Centre) is the official information centre of the International Energy Agency (IEA) in the field of energy efficient building ventilation. The key challenge is to combine a good indoor climate with low energy use. As part of its activities, the AIVC has a newsletter, an extensive database of publications, an annual conference and a whole range of technical publications.

However, caution should be exercised when comparing airtightness values : - the measurement methods are not necessarily the same. EN 13829 mentions two methods (A and B) that can lead to very different results e.g., depending on how combustion appliances are sealed; (*)
