Guidelines on ventilative cooling by IEA Annex 62

Share this Post:

Ventilation is already present in buildings through mechanical and/or natural systems and it can remove excess heat gains as well as increase air velocities and thereby also widen the thermal comfort range. IEA Annex 62 experts developed guidelines for an energy-efficient reduction of the risk of overheating by ventilative cooling solutions and for design and operation of ventilative cooling in both residential and commercial buildings.

Project deliverables are available at the Venticool platform and currently include three new publications: design guide, sourcebook and case studies. Other publications, tools developed within the project can be downloaded from the venticool platform. Last project deliverable on recommendations for standards and legislation will be available in June 2018.
