The adoption ofgeneral and permanent ventilation systems is essential.A survey was conducted in the spring of 2000 with the purpose of characterizing the ventilationsystems of residential buildings under construction. Questionnaires were sent to 6700 constructioncompanies in the northern region. Answers were obtained regarding 2700 dwellings, the mainconclusions of which are presented in this article.The implications of prNP 1037-1: Ventilation and combustion products evacuation from
