This study surveyed the impact of a negative pressure in a room in a highly airtight residential apartment with Class 3 ventilation (natural air intake and mechanical exhaust). The results of the study are as follows. 1) A room may reach an excessive level of negative pressure depending on how the ventilation system is used. 2) Noise from the drain pipe of a room air conditioner caused by negative pressure in the room is dependent on how the drain pipe is installed. 3) An experiment was conducted to investigate the mechanism of a seal break in a toilet trap. However, the seal did not break. Thus, seal breaks may be caused by multiple factors.
