 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.

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.
