Energy-Efficient Ventilation for Apartment Buildings is the title of a new guide from the Department of Energy's Rebuild America program. It's authors are present EET Division researchers Rick Diamond and Nance Matson and former researcher Helmut Feustel. This guide has been written for apartment building owners, managers and organizations in the Rebuild America program who are considering doing energy-efficient ventilation projects in their buildings. Energy-Efficient Ventilation provides approaches to diagnosing a building's ventilation needs and designing energy-efficient solutions.

Rebuild America is a network of community partnerships made up of local governments and businesses that save money by saving energy. These voluntary partnerships, working with the U.S. Department of Energy, choose the best ways to improve the energy efficiency of commercial, government and apartment buildings.
