Ventilation installations include various types of equipment that can provide personal comfort improvement, energy-bill savings, and climate-protection of the building structure.
The ventilation installation provides for air-movement without further conditioning other than filtering. Fresh-air can be brought in, stale-air can be exhausted out, and circulating interior-air causes a cooling effect on human skin.
You will find that the typical cost of a ventilation installation varies by Type as seen in the following table, and in Related Cost Guides.
|Active||Higher cooling effect||Energy cost||Higher|
|Passive||Lower cost||Less controllable||Lower|
|Lower maintenance||Less cooling effect|
|No energy cost||Installations|
