The AIVC fulfills its objectives by providing a range of services and facilities which include: Information, Technical Analysis, Technical Interchange, and Coordination.

The ACGIH offers high quality technical publications and learning opportunities.

ASC is a certified SBA 8(a) engineering/consulting firm specializing in HVAC contamination detection, abatement, and monitoring. In addition to highly professional ductwork cleaning and HVAC cleaning services, ASC offers a wide range of other engineering/ consulting/ management services directly related to Indoor Air Quality (IAQ).

The California Air Resources Board (ARB) carries out a non-regulatory Indoor Air Quality and Personal Exposure Assessment Program (Indoor Program) that includes sponsored research, exposure assessment, development of indoor air quality guidelines, and public education and outreach. The goal of the Indoor Program is to identify and reduce Californians' exposures to indoor air pollutants. The ARB is committed to pursuing actions to prevent indoor pollution and to effectively reduce the significant risk it currently poses to Californians.

The Envirosense Consortium is a non-profit organization of strategic companies and other Associations that address Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) issues. The Consortium provides educational programs that focus on proactive solutions for building, product, and maintenance systems.

The Energy Performance of Buildings Group at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory has compiled a wide variety of information regarding the energy impacts of infiltration and ventilation strategies. This page describes those effort and links to accessible publications as well as an on-line calculation program for estimating residential ventilation and associated energy and cost impacts.

The ICEEE encompasses a comprehensive research program funded by the Danish Technical Research Council. The Centre, which compromises a staff of approximately 50 persons from many different countries, is located at the Technical University of Denmark. Research focuses on studies of the effect of the indoor environment on human comfort, health, and productivity.

The Environmental Energy Technologies Division at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory conducts a broad program of research, technology development, and dissemination activities directed toward improving the health, comfort, and energy efficiency of the indoor environment.

This high-radon project has been developing a statistical methodology for providing improved estimates of local indoor radon concentrations across the United States. The purpose is to enable State or other agencies to identify high-radon counties, or portions thereof, more precisely so that indoor monitoring and control efforts can be focused more effectively. This page describes the project and how to obtain results.
