AM13 Mixed Mode Ventilation Systems

Although mixed mode is not a new approach to solving the ventilation dilemma, it is one that is often poorly executed and fails to achieve the hoped-for benefits. AM13: Mixed mode ventilation addresses this problem by providing data based on real-life applications to give the broad level of knowledge required to make strategic decisions about mixed mode systems, and point out specific pitfalls.

Properly designed, mixed mode offers greater building adaptability and longer useful life along with higher occupant satisfaction as it combines the perceived advantages of openable windows with mechanical ventilation this publication shows you how to achieve these goals in practice.
