AbstractThe relation between air infiltration rate and indoor air contaminant concentrations has been investigated in a number of air-conditioned Toronto houses with low rates of natural ventilation whose average values were lower in summer than in winter. The average indoor formaldehyde, radon and radon daughter concentrations conversely, were found to be higher in summer than in winter.
