Component Leakage Testing in Residential Buildings

Description: The common approach to leakage area measurements in residential housing through pressurization of an entire structure with a blower door. However, this technique does not provide quantitative measurements of the leakiness of individual building components. By pressurizing individual components, it is possible to determine the distribution of leakage within a structure. The studies described in this paper involved measurement of the leakage areas of fireplaces, bathroom and kitchen exhaust vents… more

National estimates of residential firewood and air pollution emissions

Description: Estimates are presented for the distribution and quantity of recent (1978-1979) use of residential firewood in the United States, based on a correlation of survey data from 64 New England counties. The available survey data from other states are in agreement with the relationship derived from New England; no constraints due to wood supply are apparent. This relationship indicates that the highest density of wood usage (Kg/ha) occurs in urban areas; thus exacerbation of urban air quality problem… more
