Ventilative cooling reduces overheating, improves summer comfort and decreases cooling loads. It is therefore one of the most efficient ways to improve summer comfort. Conditions on site, thermal inertia, solar shading and various constraints lead to the choice of the system and its design. Performance is linked to good sizing, design, correct usage of thermal destocking, and last but not least correct fit in and correct take over, checking airflows as well as controls of the system.
FREEVENT is a multi-partner (ALLIE’AIR, ALDES, EGE, ACA-O and APEBAT) project in FRANCE, financed by ADEME, on ventilative cooling. The project includes a bibliography study, controls and measurements on various installed sites and recommendations guidelines for designers.
The principal objective of this webinar is to present this project and to give information and recommendations on designing these systems and assessing their performance.
This webinar is jointly organised by the FREEVENT project and venticool (www.venticool.eu) in cooperation with the Air Infiltration and Ventilation Centre (www.aivc.org). The webinar is hosted by INIVE (www.inive.org).
