Applying ventilation basics to naturally ventilated buildings is explained. Systems in current use are illustrated.

Helpful suggestions are considered for selecting a system based on building type, site, and orientation, whether it be a "cold" or "modified environment" building. Insulation needs are outlined for buildings having limited environmental control. Information on handling manure gases and livestock heat and moisture is included.
