While openable windows offer primary ventilation, it is often difficult to use them due to draughts, rain, cold and noise issues. Roof mounted air systems often rely on wind and wind direction, therefore while they offer some opportunity for air intake and extraction at high level, many leading designers are introducing low level natural air ventilators (NAVs) at or below window level, the purpose of which is to control ventilation (to ensure an adequate supply) and so prevent build up of carbon dioxide during the day. These natural air ventilators normally comprise of an external louvre for weather protection and an internal electrically controlled damper, linked to the BMS. Another benefit of NAVs is their use in nighttime cooling systems as they do provide security against building entry.
