Discover Natural Ventilation

Cost-effective and energy-efficient climate control
 
Colt natural ventilation systems harness wind and heat to create a comfortable and healthy internal environment with optimal temperature and humidity levels and good air quality. The systems rely on automatically opening and closing ventilators, and can range from a simple open/close switch to a fully integrated energy management system with carbon dioxide, temperature and weather sensors, as well as controls to interface with the building climate control system.   Colt Products

Benefits of Natural Building Ventilation
 
Lower Building Construction Costs
Naturally ventilated buildings are less expensive to construct than mechanically ventilated buildings. The extra building improvement costs required to provide natural ventilation are more than off-set reduction by a reduction in the cost for engineering services. As a rule of thumb, naturally ventilated buildings cost about 10 - 15% less to construct than their air-conditioned equivalents. 
 
Lower Building Operating Costs
Naturally ventilated buildings are generally less expensive to run than air-conditioned buildings. In addition to a significant reduction in energy consumption, maintenance costs are also due to the reduced complexity of natural ventilation products when compared to traditional mechanical systems. 
 
Increased Health & Productivity
Surveys have shown that people prefer a work environment that has fresh air and natural daylight. Employees feel better and are more alert and productive in a naturally ventilated and climate controlled environment.
 
Reduced Environmental Impact
Naturally ventilated buildings have a smaller environmental impact over buildings that strictly use mechanical climate control. Natural ventilation reduces a building’s energy demand (particularly electrical) and lowers the emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) and other byproducts that contribute to global warming.
 
Better Long Term Investment
Buildings that are constructed according to environmentally sensitive principles are good long-term investments as environmental controls and legislation are likely to increase in the future.
