Houses today are built to be more airtight than ever before. Without a regular exchange of air, we quickly find ourselves in stuffy homes. This is neither pleasant nor
healthy. Residential ventilation provides the remedy.

More and more homes now feature cooling systems. When we talk about cooling systems, most people think of air-conditioning. However, not many people know that heat
pumps can also be used to cool living spaces – or that they are an energy-saving, eco-friendly option.

With a few easy tips, you can sustainably reduce your own energy consumption and your heating costs at the same time. So do something good for the environment as well
as your wallet.

Decentralised systems for ventilation, heating and cooling large halls have proved themselves in practical applications alongside centralised systems due to their
excellent ability to adapt to the many and varied prevailing ventilation requirements. Hoval has been manufacturing decentralised climate...

The CE marking represents a confirmation from the manufacturer of a product, stating that – in accordance with EU Regulation 765/2008 – the product fulfils the
fundamental requirements of the directives that apply to it. It is not a seal of quality.

Hardly any new residential building can do without controlled ventilation: As a rule, new buildings are so well insulated for energy reasons that there is no
spontaneous exchange of air. However, comfort ventilation also makes sense for existing houses.

Mildew does not only occur in old walls. Mildew can also strike in new buildings. Where there is moisture, the furry fungus can sprout. Are the inhabitants to blame
for not airing out the building enough? Architects who plan incorrectly? Or negligent craftsmen?

When one starts to get to grips with the requirements of the Ecodesign Directive with regard to HVAC systems, one encounters a plethora of regulations.

When is central hall ventilation the better choice, and when should decentralised ventilation be used? This neutral comparison by Dipl.-Ing. Jürgen Dorenburg looks at
technical aspects, customer benefits and financial considerations.

The purpose of a hall ventilation system is to distribute supply air by means of a controlled and therefore calculable indoor air flow in order to dissipate heat loads
and pollutant loads. There are various types of air guidance system which can perform this task. A design procedure is therefore required which makes it possible to
assess the potential air guidance systems and select the best one for the requirements in question.

Pollution in the working area depends on the air flow concept as well as the type, arrangement and magnitude of the heat loads; beyond that, it depends on the type and
arrangement of the air outlets. For example, pollution levels up to 100% with mixed ventilation can be reduced to below 10% using alternative air flow patterns.

The energy-efficient operation of hall ventilation is insured according to the current view by regulations in the Energy Saving Ordinance (EnEV) and the Energy-related
Products Directive (ErP). They prescribe high requirements on the efficiency of room ventilation equipment. In fact, the actual energy saving starts much earlier,
namely with the selection of the calculation method that is most suitable for the particular requirements on ventilation of a hall.

Climate technology in a production hall has to be able to provide supply air and dissipate heat loads and/or pollutant loads. In principle, air flows can be
transferred in two ways: either mechanically by ventilation and air-conditioning units or without machines by means of free (natural) ventilation using pressure
differences. These pressure differences are created inside the hall by heat released during the production processes (negative pressure) and outside by wind pressure.
