Natural ventilation in buildings is an essential need for people’s well-being, ensuring healthier and more pleasant environments.
According to the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the levels of pollutants present in indoor air are 2 to 5 times higher than those present in outdoor air. The World Health Organization also states that the main sources of indoor air pollution are biological pollutants, such as humidity and mold.
Some of the main consequences may be:
- Asthma attacks
- Worsening of symptoms of lung disease
- Cough and shortness of breath
- Allergic reactions
- Headache, dizziness, eye irritation
- Between others
Whether at home or at work, it is inside buildings that we spend most of our time and, therefore, it is extremely important to implement measures that increase indoor air quality.
To improve the quality of the air that is breathed daily inside buildings and ensure greater well-being, some measures can (and should) be taken, such as automatically increasing the natural ventilation of spaces.
The truth is that it is not enough to open a window once in a while. The solution may be to ensure permanent and controlled natural ventilation.

Building automation: ventilation through automatic windows
Ventilation through automatic windows is an effective alternative to manual ventilation and has several advantages, such as:
Indoor air quality
Prevention against polluting agents such as humidity, mold and possible diseases, already mentioned earlier in this article.
Air regeneration through automatic windows reduces the use of air conditioning systems and, consequently, becomes a more ecological and environmentally friendly system.
Control can be done from a distance, through a remote control and in this way, it also becomes simpler to handle, being an inclusive tool accessible to all users.
Especially in summer, high temperatures often heat up spaces. Ventilation can direct unwanted hot air in the room outside and let in fresh air from the outside.
Automatisms for windows
With Motorline’s window automation it is possible to optimize the circulation of air coming from the outside directly into the building, without the need to use air conditioning systems.
The swing windows have a great cost-benefit ratio as an affordable and durable option for ventilation and natural lighting of environments.
The automation of this type of window increases security and eliminates the need for physical effort to open and close, which is especially useful in cases of large swing windows or those that are difficult to access.
The sliding opening mechanism of the sliding windows allows you to save space, since it is not necessary to leave a free area for the opening of the leaves, making them ideal for environments with little space available.
Skylights and titling windows
