How does mechanical ventilation work. Positive pressure is pressure within a system that is greater than the environment that surrounds that system. True or false. Heat transfer is the air that goes from areas with low/ negative pressures into areas with higher pressure. True or false Natural ventilation- environmental or design factors will affect it. What is single-sided ventilation. Room area ____ x ____. What is cross ventilation. Maximum room depth = ____ x ____. What is stack ventilation. Air intake must be a maximum of _________ below the outlets. The top of a chimney-style stack should be above or below 2-3 m at the highest roof point. Multi-story stack outlets/ inlets should be: 5-6%, 8-10% or 3-4% of the floor area. Can moisture move and migrate through the building fabric by heat transfer, ventilation and differences.
