Indoor Environmental Quality

ETA researchers conduct a broad program of research and development with the goals of:

  • Reducing the energy used for thermally conditioning and distributing ventilation air in buildings
  • Improving indoor air quality (IAQ), thermal comfort and the health and productivity of building occupants
  • Understanding human exposures to environmental pollutants found in indoor and outdoor air
  • Improving the scientific understanding of factors and processes affecting air quality
  • Developing sound science to inform public policy on the most effective ways of reducing hazardous air pollutants
