Tieteellisiä, kritiikkiä kestäviä, ilmanvaihdon mitoitusperusteita ei ole.   Mitoituskäytäntö on perustunut paljolti kokemusperäiseen tietoon, jolloin ilmanvaihdon onnistuminen riippuu suunnittelijan kokemuksesta, kirjoittaa LVI-tekniikan emeritusprofessori Olli Seppänen FINVACin blogissaan: https://finvac.org/ilmanvaihdon-suunnittelulle-uudet-perusteet/

  Air infiltration in buildings has multiple consequences on energy use and indoor environmental quality. Therefore, in the last 10 years many countries have introduced requirements for building airtightness in their EP-regulation.   Those requirements often prescribe that a test is performed by a qualified tester and that every test performed is recorded in a database.  Hundreds of thousands of data are now available in Europe.

  Concept: The EU Energy Performance of Buildings Directive requires all new buildings to be nearly zero-energy by the end of 2020. Building-integrated photovoltaics (BIPV) is crucial for the decarbonisation of the building stock in Europe.   The technology integrates solar elements into buildings to generate electricity.
