Pros and cons of natural ventilation energy efficiency

Energy efficiency is the keystone of the revolution in new buildings; one concept that has been suggested is natural ventilation in order to reduce the energy consumption (as opposed to mechanical ventilation). The main idea is to use the difference of temperature in the building to generate the air flow (without any fan). Thereby, natural ventilation […]

Does natural ventilation enhance the result of a commercial EPC rating?

Passive ventilation systems for commercial premises are being claimed to have been proven to be a strategy to attain an A-rated Energy Performance Certificate. This enhanced energy efficiency attracts BREEAM points. In comparison to AC tempered building environments it has been stated that it can reduce energy consumption by up to 50% and capital cost […]
