Description:

Hygiene tool provides a quick and easy prediction of the expected hygral quality based on the relative humidity and the suitability of a component with regard to its temperature factor for the simulated situation, even without a deep knowledge of physical processes.

User:

Planners and builders who want to estimate the risk of components with different thermal qualities in terms of mould, condensate and air change rate as well as hygral comfort for a construction project in a particular climate.

Input:

Ambient temperature (by choosing the projects location from a list) and relative humidity of the ambient air. Air exchange rate. Air change rate during pressure test as well as other parameters to determine the infiltration air change rate. Moisture production, number of persons. Internal temperature.

Output:

Dew point and the absolute humidity outside. Infiltration and total air change. Moisture production. Indoor relative humidity. Indoor dew point with associated minimum temperature factor. Indoor mould point with associated minimum temperature factor.

Strength:

Provides a quick and easy prediction of the expected hygral quality based on the relative humidity and the suitability of a component with regard to its temperature factor for the simulated situation, even without a deep knowledge of physical processes.

Challenge:

Moisture production as well as the air exchange and pressure test results must be known.

Outcome

The “Hygiene Tool” is simplifying the design and optimisation process of energy-efficient buildings. This will save time and maybe trouble as well as money by using suitable components. The hygienic quality of the building might be improved. Thereby the effectiveness of the design itself is supported and the cost effectiveness of affordable NZEBs is improved, construction costs and furthermore maintenance costs may be saved.

Format:

Microsoft Excel and operates under Microsoft Windows
