||Your home should be thoroughly aired out at least three times a day - typically after sleeping, cooking, showering, drying your sports clothes and cleaning. These airings should be short and frequent and are very effective if you make use of the stack effect (temperature difference). Warm air is lighter than cold air and rises, which generates the stack effect. The warm air leaves the building at the top through stack ducts or open windows and the stale air is replaced by fresh air. Even in cold months, frequent airings are very important.|
Stack effect principles
The effect of airing depends on how many windows are open and how they are positioned relative to each other.
Configurations for stack effect:
|A vertical row of windows ensures good airing.
||A combination of facade and roof windows is ideal for airing.
Windows placed opposite each other create perfect ventilation.
