Ducting in slabs & passive solar
I'm looking for research that examines the effects of using ducting in concrete slabs to circulate heat. Specifically, I'm interested if there is any added efficiency in passive solar applications where air is circulated through the slab. My impression is that this technique opens you up to a lot of potential moisture/mould scenarios. Does anyone know of any research that looks at the implications of this technique?
