Details

ClassVent and ClassCool tools can be used at the early stages of design to help to select a ventilation strategy.

ClassVent produces preliminary sizes for ventilation openings for a variety of ventilation strategies. ClassCool can be used at the early stages of design to consider ways to prevent summertime overheating.

ClassVent and ClassCool are now only considered to be suitable for early design calculations and not for use in building control submissions.
