At a time when much attention is paid to the problem of energy saving is looking for new technical solutions, among others in the construction industry. At present, searching new solutions is a worldwide trend in creating buildings. Those solutions enable a comfortable use of building structures in harmony with natural environment and ensure reducing energy consumption. Solar chimneys, which facilitate the gravity ventilation by using solar energy, may be a solution to the problem. In hot climates solar chimney has been applied in the process of passive cooling of a building. In temperate zones and cold is used to assist natural ventilation. The problem of the solar chimney is not popular in Poland. Construction in Bydgoszcz two research positions, enabled the analysis of the impact of solar chimneys on the thermal comfort of rooms. This article presents experimental studies on solar chimney located in Poland. The analysis of the flow of air in the room during the day have been measured using two testmodels situated on the 3.1 building of UTP University of Science and Technology at 7 Kaliska street in Bydgoszcz.
