The paper devoted to indoor air quality providing in orthodox churches in Russia. Using the results of theoretical and experimental research made some practical recommendations for design and installation of ventilation systems in orthodox churches. Significant part of research deals with air and constructions humidity controls by reverse osmosis. It is reaffirmed that the rate of dehumidification is directly connected with the air exchange rates and operation of space heating devises in premises. It is very common to use natural ventilation in old churches. It is very easy to install and maintain, but still this way of indoor air conditions providing is absolutely not sustainable. And to avoid the leak of ventilation efficiency for different rooms it is recommended to provide mechanical supply and exhaust ventilation. Another significant issue for providing rapid wall dehumidification is properly operating space heating. It is noted that heating should be combined with an action of ventilation and electroosmotic drying.
