The objective of this paper is to present long time monitoring and post occupancy evaluation of theMoravian Metropolitan Library with the ventilated solar faade used for space heating and with mixing chamber for cooling with the forced ventilation. In consequences of new requirements from the EU Energy Performance of Building Directives 2002/91/EC and changing Czech building regulations is necessary support collective research effort on quality assurance and standardization on solar components and installations in buildings. The EPBD directives focuses its attention on the fact that the heating and cooling air-condition systems and plants have become, in the last decade, widespread systems used in the office and public buildings. In the paper are results from the site measurements and monitoring of the public library to evaluate real behaviour and energy efficiency of solar faade and cooling effect of mixing chamber used for the central ventilation system.
