SUMMARY OF THE THESIS

Improving the thermal performance of building envelope as well as the transition from natural ventilation concepts towards mechanical ventilation with heat recovery constitute the major trends in energyefficiency improvements of the European residential building stock. Combined mechanical ventilation and air heating systems appear a viable and comfortable technical solution for such high energy performing buildings. Joanna Polak’s PhD thesis presents the development, analysis and
performance evaluation of a novel combined ventilation and heating system, which enables air temperature control on room level. The ability of the newly developed system to improve the control of thermal conditions in individual rooms in a building is demonstrated through the experimental studies and real-life measurements. Furthermore, using numerical simulations two types of the supply air terminal devices intended for application in the proposed system are evaluated in relation to the provided local thermal comfort. The results exhibit the influence of using the combined ventilation and heating system on the provided thermal conditions as well as the system’s energy use.
