The aim of the book is to provide insights into the factors and circumstances, including the outdoor environment, that significantly influence the creation of good indoor climates and energy-efficient ventilation solutions.As it is our ambition to convey neutral and objective information, the contributing authors were chosen among national and international experts, as well as among Swegon’s own specialists.
The chapters have been written at a popular science level so that readers can readily understand the contents, and thereafter make their own independent decisions.The book, comprising more than 600 pages, is divided into five parts:Ventilare necesse estA closer look is taken at indoor climates from a medical perspective and at how the indoor environment can contribute towards improved efficiency and performance.Economic and social responsibilityWhy do we time and again make the same mistake and favour short-term economic gains over long-term overall benefits?
Are profitability and social responsibility mutually compatible?Energy and the outdoor environmentHere, we take a close look at how climate change is affected by our everyday use of energy. Experts on climate and the environment express their views on the possible consequences suggested in eleventh-hour reports in worldwide media.The indoor environment – in a wider senseThe indoor environment is about more than just air. This part of the book discusses factors such as acoustics, lighting, colour and form – factors that strongly influence our total perception of the indoor environment.Air handling processes and the indoor climateFollow the passage of air from outdoor intakes and via typical air handling systems to its final destination – air-conditioned rooms – with full accounts of what happens on the way.
How can we create truly efficient systems that correspond to clients’ and tenants’ demands?
