exchange, residents frequently end up with low quality of indoor air.
Characteristics of monitored rooms
The measurements were performed in a 4-room dwelling located on the fourth floor of the five-storey building. The building is located in the suburb of Gliwice in the south of Poland, in the area there are other five-storey building and detached houses. The apartment was occupied by a 4-person family: two adults and two students.
The total area of the apartment (with the toilet, which

The paper presents the results of identification and assessment of the energy demand for cooling purposes in the museum building. The analysis of cooling demand and assessment of indoor air quality were performed by the simulation analysis and validated by the measurement campaign of the indoor air quality in the building under consideration. For the purpose of thermal analysis the IDA ICE software was used. All simulations were carried out using meteorological data recorded by the local

The indoor environment determines the occupants’ comfort and significantly affects the energy consumed for heating and ventilating the building premises. Therefore, the proper complex thermal diagnostics of existing buildings requires a fair assessment of indoor environment conditions. The method for measuring and assessing the quality of the thermal environment and the quality of the indoor air is demonstrated through the example of two single-family houses and one apartment in a multi-family

their time indoors. Because the ratio of indoor/outdoor particulate concentrations often vary, ambient PM2.5 concentrations measured at air quality monitoring stations may give a false estimation of personal exposure.
A significant increase in the density of monitoring networks (including the monitoring of indoor air) can be obtained by applying portable low-cost sensors in air quality control. Technological progress in the production of low-cost sensors for air-quality monitoring over the last

fresh air per one seating or bed should be in the range of 10-20 m3/h, depending on the outdoor air temperature (Tab. 3). According to UIC 553 leaflet , it is recommended to increase the airflow up to 5 m3/h for each place for a smoker. In order to obtain thermal comfort conditions, the adequate parameters should be provided. The indoor air temperature is determined on the basis of the adjustment curve, depending on the outdoor air temperature. Velocity and relative air humidity are read on the
