Energy-recovery ventilation for commercial applications

Daikin Europe has updated its VAM and VKM heat-recovery ventilation units to include CO2 sensors and optional filters that can reduce energy loss and maintain high air quality in commercial environments. These units can provide overnight free cooling as part of a complete climate solution.

Installation is simplified by being able to adjust nominal air flow with the remote control. Up to 45 fan settings (15 per fan speed) provide precise fan adjustment and less need for dampers compared with traditional installations.

Optional electric heaters extend the operating range of the units below -15°C by pre-heating incoming air.
