Residential indoor air quality, historically, has not been a major concern because the envelope and window leakage provided inhabitants with sufficient outdoor air. Older residential buildings are sufficiently leaky such that infiltration alone can meet the minimum outdoor air requirements for residential ventilation. In an increased environmentally conscious society, many individuals have become more aware of their resource consumption, and are implementing enclosure draftstopping, attic insulation, and window replacement.
