determine the ratio of the heat losses

Consider two identical buildings: one in Los Angeles, California, where the atmospheric pressure is 101 kPa and the other in Denver, Colorado, where the atmospheric pressure is 83 kPa. Both buildings are maintained at 21°C, and the infiltration rate for both buildings is 1.2 air changes per hour (ACH). That is, the entire air in the building is replaced completely by the outdoor air 1.2 times per hour on a day when the outdoor temperature at both locations is 10°C. Disregarding latent heat, determine the ratio of the heat losses by infiltration at the two cities.
