Presents background to and advice on methodologies for sensory evaluation of perceived indoor air quality. Proposes methods which apply to source assessments as well as field investigations. The methods will assist in labelling of building materials, characterizing air quality in indoor spaces, controlling ventilation performance, and measuring occupant responses in questionnaire field studies of the sick building syndrome. The proposed methods will enable designers, manufacturers, chemical and ventilating engineers, consumers, building and health authorities, and other decision makers to compare and select appropriate building materials, furnishings etc. Thereby the design, supply and control for good perceived air quality in indoor spaces will be simplified which will lower the costs and minimize wasted energy.
