The report presents a multiroom model for estimating the impact of various sources on indoor air quality (IAQ). The model is written for use on IBM-PC and compatible microcomputers. It is easy to use with a menu-driven user interface. Data are entered using a fill-in-a-form interface. Model results are presented in graphic and tabular form. The model treats each room as a well-mixed chamber that can contain both sources and sinks. The model allows analysis of the impact of interroom air flows, HVAC (heating, ventilating, and air conditioning) systems, and air cleaners on IAQ. Model predictions are compared with experimental data from EPA's IAQ test house. The model predictions are in good agreement with the experimental data. The model is a useful tool for analyzing IAQ issues. The model requires an IBM-PC or compatible computer, DOS 2.1 or higher, one disk drive, and at least 512 k-bytes of memory. A graphics adapter and monitor are required to display the graphics output from the model.
