Abstract:

The aim of this paper is to present results of measurement of hot-air floor heating system. The energy from fireplace directly heats the house near to the chimney and partly is distributed by the special ventilation under the floor in the whole heated room. The main principle is based on specially designed accumulative floors, consisting of a set of special chambers, which enable to heated air from the fireplace to flow through them. The layer of concrete floor is installed on the surface of these chambers. Hot-air can be intensively distributed around the house with time shift, but the air flow is not uniform and some places are warmer or colder. The results of measurements in the building showed that the accumulation in the floor compensates temperature differences. The result of proper application of this type of heating is a stable thermal comfort and saving of heating costs. Based on the results of measurements, practical recommendations for the design, installation and use of these types of heating were summarised in the conclusions.

Abstract:

The aim of this paper is to present results of microclimatic research focused mainly on dust pollution in several offices of Departments in the Faculty of Engineering at Czech University of Life Sciences Prague. The attention is paid to the dimensions of the room, floor covering, furniture, equipment, ventilation, frequency of the use and period of the year. In the frame of this research the concentration of air dust was measured by special exact instrument Dust-Track aerosol monitor. After the installation of different impactors the PM¹, PM².⁵, PM⁴, PM¹0 size fractions were also measured. The obtained results of measurements were evaluated by the statistical instruments and concentrations of different size of dust particles were analyzed. Results of different indoor conditions were generalized. Based on the results of measurements practical recommendations for the design, use, cleaning and ventilation of these types of rooms and buildings were summarised in the conclusions.
