Abstract

The cities of Chile’s Central Valley face a serious problem regarding airborne pollution with many already declared saturated in terms of PM10. This pollution is directly related to the thermally inadequate housing stock and the use of inefficient wood burning appliances. This paper presents the initial stages of research for the project "Environmentally Efficient Dwellings: Design Guide for the Construction and Management of Sustainable Mixed Use Residential Buildings for Southern Central Chile." To gain an understanding of the current situation, post occupancy evaluation and a study of occupants’ behaviour was undertaken of dwellings in the city of Temuco, a city declared saturated by airborne pollution PM10 and PM2.5. This evaluation helps to build a picture of the reality of daily life both in winter and summer months, a picture that will enable the resulting guide to closely fit the needs and realities of the population of Chile’s Central Valley.
