This article surveys a so far little known approach to two simultaneously requested but mutually opposed requirements on internal conditions in buildings. It is the growing demand of better internal comfort while the other is decrease of costs and energy consumption. The internal conditions is ensured by terminal units located and adjusted at the points of conditioned air delivery into rooms. Author’s terminal units achieve the goal by having no moving parts. Advantages are low cost, robustness and long operating life without maintenance. Capability to switch the air flows at a high frequency without wear opens new ways to control, such as the flow pulse width modulation. The fast switching also makes possible small regenerative heat exchangers, keeping inside the building the heat extracted from the removed contaminated air.
