Regulation - 01/08/2016

Aereco ventilation units are ErP-ready

Commission Regulation (EU) No 1253/2014 and commission delegated regulation (EU) No 1254/2014 implementing Directive 2009/125/EC of 21st October 2009, respectively, relate to the implementation of ecodesign requirements for ventilation units and Labelling of residential ventilation units.


So, for ventilation systems within the scope of this Directive, the ventilation units are being now subject to performance levels required by means of a new ErP (Energy-related Products) regulation.


The fans, which have a power consumption less than 30W, are not subject to this regulation, as are extra ventilation systems (individual extractions eg in bathrooms) or which use only in exceptional surroundings (smoke control systems in case of fire, for example).


From 1st January 2016, both of these regulations apply, and all Aereco fans and HRV have product information sheets available from our website to characterise them.


These sheets, applied only to ventilation units defined as for residential application, provide among other things their energy SEC classes, while for ventilation units defined as “non-residential”, these sheets will display their efficiencies.


Energy labels will be attached to the products concerned to define their energy efficiency, their maximum flow rate and their sound power level. All Aereco fans scored among the best energy levels, that is from B class to A+ class.

All relevant documents are available in the “Related documents” tab of the products pages, and they are also available in the Download section under the “Ecodesign Directive – ErP” category.

The logo “ErP compliant” recalls that all fans Aereco covered by these rules comply with the requirements.
