I am working on a research for energy modelling of residential buildings. Measuring the infiltration rate is out of the scope of the research however it plays an important role in determining the internal environment. The buildings are quite draughty (windows and doors are not very well sealed). I'm using the IES-VE for modelling. How can I define the infiltration rate in this case?

@shireen1982 Please try to explain what you are after? Is it the amount of typical air changes resulting from infiltration of typical house or is it how to specify infiltration in IES-VE? Also specify where is the house located?
