PM2.5 pollution has become a big problem in China due to rapid industrialization and high energy consumption. This critical review focuses on current research on PM2.5 particle matter, and provides an insight from ergonomic and energy conservation prospective. It is suggested that the interactions among indoor particle concentration distribution and outdoor particulate concentration, building envelope characteristics, occupants’ window-opening behaviors and HVAC system operation need to be carefully considered to achieve energy savings while maintaining a healthy and productive indoor environment.
