Indoor Air Quality - website information resources
Concerns with indoor air quality (IAQ) have increased since energy
conservation measures were instituted in office buildings during the 1970s,
minimizing the infiltration of outside air and contributing to the buildup
of indoor air contaminants. IAQ generally refers to the quality of the
air in an office environment. Other terms related to IAQ include indoor
environmental quality (IEQ) and "sick building syndrome" (SBS).
