CEE researchers partner on attached garage contaminant study

Dec 18, 2013

CEE researchers are assisting on a project sponsored by ASHRAE and led by the University of Illinois to gather information to help inform guidelines for attached garage ventilation standards.

The project will assess the movements of contaminants and pollutants from attached garages and different insulation and air sealing measures that could be applied to reduce movement. The project will analyze five houses located in central Illinois. 

CEE researchers will help modify monitoring equipment so that University of Illinois researchers can accurately look at the buildup of gas concentration in a garage and how that buildup impacts the attached home. CEE will also help analyze the collected data.
