As building science has improved and interest in home energy efficiency has increased– houses are getting tighter and tighter, with fewer leaks, gaps and holes where air can flow in and out. In general, this is great news for the energy efficiency of a home, because air leaks make your heating and cooling systems work much harder. Tight homes however may not have adequate indoor air quality because they lack sufficient quantities of fresh air and adequate venting of fumes, odors, and moisture.
