This paper discusses the use of trickle ventilators in the design for natural ventilation in dwellings. The discussion is based around the results of a field monitoring experiment where 17 out of 32 houses were fitted with trickle ventilators as a remedial measure to improve the distribution of ventilation and to reduce the occurrence of condensation. Reductions in condensation, effects on energy use, window opening and occupants views are considered. The paper concludes that trickle ventilators are a successful component part in the design of natural ventilation systems in dwellings.
