Abstract

This article, a summary of Fisk (2000a, 2000b), estimates the nationwide improvements in health and productivity potentially attainable by providing better indoor environmental quality (IEQ) in U.S. buildings. Estimates include the potential reductions in three categories of health effects, the associated economic benefits, and the potential direct improvements in productivity not mediated through health. Expected costs and benefits of improving IEQ are compared, with a brief discussion of energy implications.
