Energy-recovery ventilation units

Xpelair Ventilation Solutions has launched a range of high-efficiency energy-recovery ventilation units for the non-residential sector. They are designed to meet and surpass the energy-efficiency requirements of the Building Regulations. The Xcell EC range can reduce heating and cooling requirements by up to 94% by recovering energy from extract air and transferring it to incoming air using an aluminium counterflow heat exchanger. They are Eurovent certified.

Sensors in the room for CO2, air quality and relative humidity can be used to control ventilation according to actual requirements. A BMS-compatible interface enables these units to be integrated into building-management policies.

There are four models for varying airflow requirements. Their fans meet the requirements of the ErP (Energy-related Products) regulations due to be introduced in 2013/2015.

The energy-recovery cell is up to 44% more efficient than required by current Building Regulations, so the Xcell range will meet efficiency standards well into the future.
