Energy-recovery ventilation for clubs, pubs, and restaurants

Elta Fans, energy recovery ventilation

Elta’s SWHR180 fan for extracting stale air from pubs, clubs and restaurants also incorporates energy recovered to reduce the energy needed to heat or cool the space. Such buildings require a lot of air changes — depending on the number of people, which can vary considerably during the day, and from the preparation, serving and consumption of food and drinks.

For a restaurant, the recommendation is 10 to 15 air changes an hour, for a pub 15 to 20 air changes an hour and in popular clubs and bars 20 to 30 air changes an hour — given the heat generated by people dancing.

Elta’s new fans can achieve 73% thermal efficiency through their integrated aluminium energy-recovery cell. Other features include very low power DC motor.

These fans are suited to new buildings and retro-fitting.
