    The benefits of
    natural ventilation in working spaces

    arrow Back to blog 17th May 2021

    The issue of ventilation within buildings is included in Part F of the UK’s Building Regulations which outlines industry standards for air quality and ventilation. These building regulations state that it is important that ventilation is controllable, either by manual or automatic controls, so that reasonable indoor air quality can be maintained.

These building regulations state that it is important that ventilation is controllable, either by manual or automatic controls, so that reasonable indoor air quality can be maintained.

     

    Why choose natural ventilation?

    In simple terms, natural ventilation is a form of ventilation that is driven by pressure differences between the internal and external of a building. This is different to mechanical ventilation, which is forced ventilation driven by fans.

     

    Installing a natural ventilation system has numerous benefits for any building, domestic or commercial. By delivering a constant flow of fresh outdoor air, this type of ventilation enables a safe, healthy and comfortable living or working environment. Its many advantages have resulted in most architects considering the prospect of natural ventilation as a first choice and often only resorting to mechanical ventilation if necessary.

     

    What are the benefits of natural ventilation?

    Natural ventilation is generally an easier and more cost-effective option compared to mechanical ventilation as it relies solely on outdoor airflow. In most cases, this results in reduced operating costs, as well as little need for ongoing maintenance. Natural ventilation also enables the regulation of internal temperatures and can be considered an eco-friendly option as mechanical cooling systems are not required. This form of ventilation instead allows you to control your environment without having to isolate yourself from the outdoors.

     

    Several other benefits of natural ventilation are often overlooked, such as its health benefits. Poorly-ventilated buildings are proven to aggravate a number of health issues, including breathing problems, fatigue, lack of contraction, low mood, and even depression. Fresh air and daylight from natural ventilation can help to improve your living or work area by encouraging a constant flow of fresh air and enabling a happy and healthy environment.

     

    Introducing the Aero Electric Vent Rooflight 

    If you’re currently searching for a natural ventilation option, the Aero Electric Vent is a stylish rooflight that looks almost identical to our Skyview rooflights when closed. What makes this rooflight different is the incorporated state-of-the-art technology that delivers a winning combination of light and natural ventilation for interiors below. Fitted with a high-quality opening mechanism that is concealed within the sleek framework, the Aero Electric Vent offers easy operation via remote control and can be opened to a maximum opening of 400mm.

     

    When paired with any of our electronic accessories, the Aero Electric Vent is an incredibly intelligent rooflight. If you opt to combine your Aero Vent with a rain sensor, it will trigger the closure of your rooflight from the moment it senses wet weather conditions – protecting interiors below without you having to lift a finger. For the full weather sensor package, we recommend our Weather Pack, which also triggers the closure of your Aero Vent in the event of high winds as well as rainfall.

     

    If you’re a contractor or self-employed builder that’s interested in how an Aero Electric Vent rooflight is installed, make sure you check out our comprehensive installation video here.
