Ventilation systems have the task of transporting fresh outside air inside and allowing odour- and pollutant-contaminated inside air to flow outside.

Despite this important function, they are not without controversy, which is usually due to a lack of knowledge and poor maintenance.

To be able to plan a ventilation system correctly, you first need to familiarise yourself with its components and the minimum requirements specified by the Passive House Institute.

The most important standards as well as physical laws and formulae are then applied to the ventilation planning for an example project.

Tips and requirements for the design and operation of a ventilation system round off the learning module.

The German Energy Agency (dena) recognises the "Fundamentals of ventilation technology" learning module with 6 UE (teaching units).

Learning objectives

The following learning objectives are to be achieved with this learning module:

  • Moisture protection, pollutant removal, CO2
  • Knowledge of the components of a ventilation system and their functions
  • Standards, colours and symbols
  • Passive house criteria
  • Heat recovery
  • h-x diagram
  • Planning: boundary conditions, client requirements for air volumes, air distribution, device selection
  • Top 10 planning
  • Execution example and your most common mistakes
  • Operation of a ventilation system
