Problem:Classic High-Rise building Stack Effect and air balancing issue
Residence of Ariel West experienced extremely uncomfortable conditions in common hallways throughout the entire building.
During the winter months, the upper floors common hallways would get unbearably hot, while the lower floors got extremely cold. This was the results of classic stack effect.
In modern high-rise building with well-sealed envelopes, the stack effect can create significant pressure differences. Such pressure differences can cause significant air imbalance resulting in colder temperatures in upper floors and warmer temperatures in lower floors during the summer months and the reverse during the winter months.
