Ventilation Natural and Mechanical

Individual appreciation of air conditioned surroundings

This work is based on the RESHYVENT project  in which the effectiveness of hybrid (i.e. combined natural and mechanical ventilation) was measured and investigated in the urban canyon of Athens, Greece – the most important conclusion being that natural ventilation is dominant. It is suggested that the individual reaction to Air Conditioned Buildings should be better investigated, since many people ask for the comfort associated with natural ventilation.
