The Ventilation Laboratory located at the School of Architecture of the University of Valladolid provides equipment and technical means necessary for the evaluation of the ventilation phenomenon in the interest of energy conservation occupied spaces, as well as comfort and health features of these spaces. The technical equipment allows to evaluate the behaviour of air in different types of space by evaluating the properties and conditions of the displaced air masses in the process of air renovation.
The "Urcomante" solar house is the executed conclusion of the research project for the contest "Solar Decathlon Europe 2010". The hygrothermal conditions inside are managed and controlled by the conditioning system associated with indoor air ventilation processes towards energy conservation. The design criteria is based on the innovative idea of a self-sufficient and sustainable housing.Urcomante House website
