In this paper, the relationship between airtightness and indoor air quality is shown, based on measurements made of thirteen detached wooden houses. Secondly, a chart for predicting air infiltration from airtightness rank is given, and the relationship between airtightness and air infiltration is discussed. Finally, optimum combinations of heating and ventilating systems and types of cooking appliances are suggested according to the airtightness rank of a house.
