Potentiella åtgärder samt förbättringar kring energiförbrukning avseende ventilationssystem med värmeåtervinning (Swedish)
Abstract [en]

The ventilation system is in itself a huge necessity in our everyday life as it provides sufficient amount of fresh air to our indoor climate, while it simultaneously circulates the residing air pollutants out of the building. Although, for this to be made possible, large amounts of energy is required to be consumed, which in turn leads to an increased energy cost. The knowledge to minimize the use of energy occurs in many different scopes of practices throughout our society. Many people however, avoid such measures due to the high initial costs which are presented, but also because they haven't enough awareness of how they should rectify the problem. The Study is mainly based on researching previously performed measures of system upgrades in the ventilation industry regarding ventilation systems with heat recovery, while understanding the different elements that influences the choice to either upgrade or renovate the already existing system. The implementation of thesis happened through information gathering, a literature study and a qualitative research, which in this case were interviews. The literature study consisted of scientific reports, evaluations and a couple of digital sources which were relevant to the subject we were focusing on. The interviews on the other hand were conducted with experienced officials and employees in the ventilation industry, with the purpose of having a better understanding behind the reason of a system being upgraded. The final results of the study indicated that the most common reason why a costumer/property owner sought an upgrade or renovation of the ventilation system was mainly because of contamination in the heat exchanger, which in return increased the energy consumption while at the same time impaired the indoor climate.

Abstract [sv]

Ventilationssystemet är en nödvändighet i vår vardag, då det ska tillföra god inomhusluft samtidigt som den cirkulerar bort luftföroreningarna som finns inuti byggnaden. Men för att detta ska möjliggöras förbrukas stora mängder energi, som i sin tur leder till en ökad energikostnad. Kunskapen för att minimera energianvändningen förekommer i många varierande verksamhetsområden. Däremot är det många som undviker sådana åtgärder på grund av de höga initialkostnaderna men även eftersom de inte har kännedom kring hur dom ska åtgärda problemet. Studien är främst baserad på att ta reda på tidigare utförda åtgärder av systemuppgradering i ventilationsbranschen med inriktning inom ventilationssystem med värmeåtervinning, och genom det begripa vilka faktorer som påverkar valet till att man vill uppgradera eller renovera sitt befintliga system. Genomförandet av arbetet grundades på faktainsamling, litteraturstudie och en kvalitativ forskning i form av intervjuer. Den inhämtade litteraturen bestod av vetenskapliga rapporter, teknikupphandlingar, utvärderingar och digitala källor som var relevanta kring ämnesområdet. Intervjuerna utfördes med erfarna tjänstemän inom branschen, i syfte med att innehava en djupare förståelse kring systemuppgradering av ventilationssystem och anledningen till detta. Slutresultat av undersökningen tydde på att den mest förekommande anledningen till att en kund/fastighetsägare sökte en uppgradering eller renovering av sitt ventilationssystem med värmeåtervinning var på grund av nedsmutsning i värmeväxlaren, vilket försämrade inomhusklimatet och ökade energiförbrukningen.
