In dwellings ventilated by extract ventilation there are common complaints of cold draught caused by the supply air entering the room through openings close to the windows. This paper reports on studies of unconventional ways to distribute the supply air in order to minimise the risk of such problems. Experiments have been done where the supply air device is located in the hall of an apartment. The ventilation efficiency in the rooms adjacent to the hall has been studied with open and closed doors. The behaviour of gravity currents has also been studied in scale models. Measurements show that it is possible to ventilate rooms using only slots above and below the doors.
