When selecting minimum ventilation rates, employers need to strike a balance between the well-recognized energy costs of providing higher minimum ventilation rates and the expected, but less well quantified, health benefits from higher rate of ventilation. This is a summary of the paper by Milton et al. (2000) that found low employee sick leave associated with high ventilation rates in a set of buildings located in Massachusetts. A simple cost-benefit analysis is also presented.
