Refurbishing old buildings to make them energy efficient often leaves them so tightly sealed that indoor air quality suffers, with possible damaging consequences for human health and productivity. The EU-funded Cetieb research project is working to solve this problem by developing innovative ways of both monitoring and controlling the indoor environment in the most cost-effective ways possible. The development includes a set of tools based on innovative sensors. The concept of those tools was presented in a previous work. This paper presents the results obtained from the field-testing in laboratory environment and real case studies.
