With today's focus and drive for energy efficiency, this course is an introduction to roof ventilation in commercial and industrial applications. Typically, large warehouses and manufacturing areas suffering from poor indoor air quality (IAQ) for occupants, and requiring help to improve thermal conditions at different periods during the day, week and year.

This course looks at hybrid turbine vents, the design, control and application considerations as energy efficient solutions to heat producing factory operations, by facilitating the removal of thermal loads from machinery and other heat generating operations, and its re placement by cooler, external air. For warehouses, it discusses hybrid vents as a method of exploiting 'night cooling' potential where favourable temperature differentials exist.
