Värme- och ventilationssystem: Den historiska utvecklingen och det arkitektoniska samspelet

Abstract [en]

This thesis involves heating and ventilation systems in architecture. The thesis will show how the heating and ventilation systems have looked like and developed overtime. With the help of information developed, three concepts will be created as a result of having combined different concept development methods. The goal is to reach a conclusion on how the optimum house should look like enabling heating and ventilation systems to be easy to maintain and use, and be so energy efficient as possible while fulfilling its purpose. To get a good result all possible factors that in a major or minor scale have impact on the system will be attended. This is for a holistic approach to demonstrate which aspects should get the right measure of perception in the context of building construction projects. Both architecture and internal technology has changed much in recent decades. Within the architecture the rooftops has only decreased, thicker windows and doors are sealed more than ever, the use of mechanized ventilation system is increasingly being introduced and applied, and for the investment costs for a new building to be minimized quick solutions have been figured out. The big picture has unfortunately, because of lack of knowledge, not always been taken into account. The new architecture has caused more problems than good. The low ceiling height impedes the natural air circulation in the room, which contributes to poorer air quality and thickening of the windows and doors makes the inhabitants inherently completely dependent on the capability of the mechanized ventilation to fulfill its purpose. Through three examples of how houses can be built, the report shall give an understanding of the connection between the heating, ventilation and architectural interaction.
