In a recent HVAC blog we looked at the Energy-related Products (ErP) Directive, specifically Lot 6 which deals with minimum performance levels for ventilation units. This legislation takes effect from January 1st 2016, so if your air handling equipment doesn’t comply then there’s no time to lose. But what about the exemptions to Lot 6? Let’s take a look at them:

  •          Ventilation systems that feature a heat exchanger and a heat pump for heat recovery
  •          Fans with a power input of less than 30 W in a casing according to 327/2011 (ecodesign requirements for fans driven by motors with an electric input power between 125 W and 500 kW)
  •          ATEX directive equipment (for explosive atmospheres)
  •          Fans for use in emergency situations
  •          Fans used in certain extreme temperatures
  •          Kitchen fans
  •          Where the power supply voltage is over 1,000V (AC) or 1,500V (DC)
  •          In toxic, corrosive and inflammable environments or in environments with abrasive materials

If you’re still unsure whether your AHUs meet the requirements of the ErP Directive, give Gibbons a call. As a long-time supplier, installer and service provider for air handling units (AHUs), we’re fully aware of the importance of meeting energy-efficiency legislation and have a wealth of products and expertise available.
