The objective of present work was to develop the metric that assess the performance of solutions securing high indoor air quality in low-energy (modern) residential buildings. This was achieved by summarizing data on the levels and types of gaseous pollutants and particulate matter in low-energy buildings and comparing them with the existing exposure limits for pollutants. The result is a graphical signature showing whether any pollutant level exceeds short-term and long-term exposure limits, and indicating the associated healthy life years lost; the signature is supplemented with the information on energy use in a building.
