Basement ventilation of apartment buildings

According to the legislation of the Russian Federation, the basement of an apartment building is a room for technical needs, the right to which belongs to all residents of the house. Most often, important technical communications are located in the basement, providing apartments with water and heating, as well as equipment for servicing gas needs.

All these pipes and tanks are made of metal, which is subject to corrosion. It is extremely important to pay special attention to proper ventilation in the basement of an apartment building. Timely installed air exchange in the basement will increase the comfort of living on the lower floors of the building, guarantees high-quality ventilation of the entire building, since it begins in the basement.

Why is the natural ventilation of the basement disturbed?

Basement ventilation of apartment buildings

There are SNiP ventilation in the basement of an apartment building. According to this document, the temperature in the basement must correspond to at least + 5C, even with open air.

In some cases, the residents themselves are the cause of the malfunction of the ventilation, especially in Soviet-built residential buildings, where, in an effort to improve living conditions, people install plastic windows and pipes, and also carry out additional installation of air conditioning systems.

As a result of these reasons, the microclimate of the basements is disturbed, discomfort arises in the summer, an unpleasant smell appears, spreading from the bottom up, and heating costs for the whole house increase in winter.

And in the case of new buildings, proper ventilation of the basement will make it possible to use this room not only exclusively for technical needs, but also as a common room, for example, a pantry, a billiard room, a pram room or a small gym, which is very convenient and is an excellent investment at today’s rising prices for square meter of housing.

Ventilation of the basements of apartment buildings: a profitable solution

How to make ventilation in the basement of an apartment building? In the case of new buildings, it is important to take into account the primary technical calculation, since it is made on the basis of current standards and requirements.

Ventilation of the basements of apartment buildings: a profitable solution

In the case of the housing stock of the Soviet period, the situation is somewhat more complicated, since the initial conditions have changed significantly since then – the level of air pollution, which directly affects temperature and humidity, communications inside the house (installation of plastic windows and pipes), wear of the building structures themselves, and many others. parts that are important for the operation of ventilation systems.

However, both in the case of new buildings and in the situation with the secondary housing stock, the solution to the problem of insufficient ventilation in the basement premises is the installation of auxiliary ventilation equipment.

In Japan and Europe, where people gravitate not only to cost-effective, but also environmentally friendly technologies, solar collectors are widely used. One of the valuable advantages of the equipment is the use of free solar energy. This saves a significant amount already over the first winter.

Also, the solar collector is the most fireproof, simple and convenient to use. The design of the solar panel is designed in such a way that it fits organically into the space and takes up very little space. A minimum of parts in the design of a solar battery is a guarantee of protection against breakdowns.

Since the quality of the air we breathe directly affects the quality of life, more and more people are thinking about the relationship between their own comfort and the state of the environment. And here energy-saving technologies become excellent helpers. They allow minimizing the emissions of heat and harmful substances into the surrounding world.

It turns out that the use of solar energy is the most profitable, stable and safe way to bring basement ventilation to the norms specified in SNiP.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
