Ciat Ozonair’s Ecociat ventilation heat-recovery unit can reduce the cost of domestic hot water in offices, healthcare establishments and retirement homes by up to 70%, with a payback of less than two years. These heat-pump units use extract air at around 22°C to raise the temperature of cold water to about 50°C and are designed for use with conventional boilers and other systems using fossil fuel. It is simple to install, without changes to existing circuits. It offers a year-round COP of over 3.5

An Ecociat unit can be installed on the roof or in a plant room. They can be adapted simply and quickly to existing buildings or integrated into buildings under construction.
