Cooling chimney - PROTO204 - Orsay. © AirDesignLab

The ventilations chimney is installed on the PROTO 204 for its summer experimentation. The prototype has to validate its ventilation functions for the improvement of summer comfort.

What are the benefits of the ventilations chimney?

85 % savings on energy consumption for cooling
75 % savings on energy consumption for heating
100 % increase of the comfort zone in summer
Indoor air quality improvement without the use of windows

Potential savings on a city like Paris :
5532 GWh / year of savings for 47000 condos in Paris
158 060 kWh / year for a 5-storey building housing

How does the ventilation chimney works?
The main purpose of our chimney is to cool and ventilate through the installation of a wind catcher creating a controllable flow of air in the volume to temper. Through the use of a manual control and an indicator light connected to a weather station on the roof, we can afford the desired comfort. By I mplementing a heat exchanger in the chimney, we provide heating and the most efficient ventilation.
