• Dampness and Moisture Problems in Norwegian Homes 

      Becher, Rune; Høie, Anja Hortemo; Bakke, Jan Vilhelm; Holøs, Sverre Bjørn; Øvrevik, Johan (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      The occurrence of dampness and mold in the indoor environment is associated with respiratory-related disease outcomes. Thus, it is pertinent to know the magnitude of such indoor environment problems to be able to estimate ...
    • Demand-controlled ventilation: do different user groups require different CO2-setpoints? 

      Haugland, Martine Borgen; Yang, Aileen; Holøs, Sverre Bjørn; Thunshelle, Kari; Mysen, Mads (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      The aim of this study is to investigate whether children's bioeffluent generation rate is proportional to their carbon dioxide (CO2) generation rate. Consequently, to assess if there is a need to differentiate the CO2- ...
    • Effect of ventilation on perceived air quality in 18 classrooms 

      Holøs, Sverre Bjørn; Yang, Aileen; Thunshelle, Kari; Mysen, Mads (Conference object; Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      The aim of this paper is to assess whether reducing the minimum ventilation airflow rate (Vmin) has any negative impacts on perceived air quality (PAQ) upon entering an unoccupied room. Seventeen healthy young adults were ...

      Holøs, Sverre Bjørn; Maltha, Mette Maren; Berge, Magnar (SINTEF Fag;7, Research report, 2013)
      Forprosjektet «helse og inneklima i passivhus» har hatt som hensikt å legge grunnlag for mer systematisk undersøkelse av inneklima og helse i norske passivhus og referanseboliger etter TEK over tid, sammenligne dette med ...
    • Livsløpsvurdering (LCA) av puss på isolasjon 

      Wærp, Silje; Svensson, Anna; Holøs, Sverre Bjørn; Murphy, Mark Allen (Prosjektrapport (SINTEF Byggforsk);95, Research report, 2012)
      Rapporten oppsummerer livsløpsanalyse (LCA) av fasadeisolerings system puss på isolasjon. Livsløpsanalysen dokumenterer produktenes miljøbelastning fra vugge til grav samt beregner spart energi og tilhørende sparte ...
    • Process-related risks in refurbishment of dwellings using prefabricated wall elements with integrated PV and ventilation ducts 

      Holøs, Sverre Bjørn; Lukina, V.; Hauge, Åshild Lappegard; Thunshelle, Kari (Conference object; Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      Prefabricated façade elements with integrated technical infrastructure is an attractive technology for refurbishment of existing dwellings. Heating and cooling demand can be reduced, local energy production introduced, and ...
    • Ventilasjonsbehov i tidlig avgassingsfase. Bakgrunn og faglig begrunnelse. 

      Holøs, Sverre Bjørn; Lind, Merethe; Yang, Aileen; Mysen, Mads (SINTEF Rapport;2017:00034, Research report, 2017)
      I prosjektet BEST VENT er det sett nærmere på dagens formulering i Klimaveiledning 444 om full døgnkontinuerlig ventilasjon i ett år for nybygg og rehabiliterte bygg. Det har skjedd to viktig endringer siden anbefalingen ...
    • VOC emission rates in newly built and renovated buildings, and the influence of ventilation – a review and meta-analysis 

      Holøs, Sverre Bjørn; Yang, Aileen; Lind, Merethe; Thunshelle, Kari; Schild, Peter; Mysen, Mads (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      Few field studies have evaluated ventilation strategies, such as temporarily increasing the ventilation rate, to counter the high pollutant-load from off-gassing of volatile compounds from new materials in these buildings. ...
