Nocturnal natural ventilation for low and zero energy office buildings in Central Chile | 2009 | English
Office buildings in central Chile normally show higher cooling than heating energy demand.Overheating is a frequent problem in this type of buildings in cities like Valparaso and Santiago.Santiago (33S) presents a Mediterranean climate, with a hig
Calculation of the primary energy consumption of a supply and exhaust ventilation system with heat recovery in comparison to a demand-based (moisture-controlled) exhaust ventilation system | 2009 | English
Due to the increase in CO2 emissions and the resulting climate change more and more efforts aremade to reduce energy consumption.
It is well known that appropriate ventilation represents one of the prerequisites for achieving goodindoor comfort, and we try to ensure a continuous and sufficient intake of fresh air into a building.
