How Does Displacement Ventilation Work?

Posted by Price Industries on May 4, 2021 at 1:11 PM

Energy Efficient Ventilation Effectiveness and Thermal Comfort

Displacement ventilation provides low velocity air at around 65°F that relies on buoyancy forces to drive the air motion. Supply air spreads across the floor until encountering thermal plumes from heat sources that naturally drive the clean, conditioned air up through the breathing zone. Heat and contaminants are carried up to high-level return or exhaust grilles instead of getting recycled through the space. The result is high ventilation effectiveness and improved thermal comfort delivered in an energy efficient manner.
