Xpelair Ventilation Solutions has launched a new range of high efficiency, energy recovery ventilation units for the non-residential sector, designed to meet and surpass the energy efficiency requirements of the building regulations.
Ideal for commercial applications, Xpelairs Xcell EC range utilises the latest in energy efficient technology offering a reduction of heating and cooling requirements of up to 94% by recovering energy from the dirty extract ventilation and transferring it to the incoming fresh air. The units satisfy and exceed the requirements of the current Building Regulations Part L2 for the conservation of fuel and power.
The Xcell range incorporates a number of technologies aimed at delivering optimal indoor air quality with minimal energy consumption including; an aluminium counterflow heat exchanger with Eurovent certified ratings of up to 94% and high efficiency EC motors with backward curved impellers for lower running costs.
The units also feature an inbuilt Demand Controlled Ventilation system that moderates the fresh air supply and dirty extract airflow rate automatically based on the number of occupants and adjusts the airflow accordingly.
This is achieved by a range of compatible in-room sensors monitoring CO2, air quality and humidity, representing huge savings for clients as when a building has fewer occupants the system runs at the appropriate rate as opposed to using the same rate of ventilation throughout the day. The units also have BMS compatible interface options to ensure integration into modern building management policies.
Nygel Humphrey, Head of industrial Sales at Xpelair, comments: The new Xcell EC range features some of the most innovative energy saving ventilation technology to date, while the added BMS interfacing will ensure that it will continue to meet the ever increasing energy efficiency and performance needs of the building industry.
The range is easy to maintain and hosts a number of features designed to optimise indoor air quality through a range of sensors, keeping running costs to a minimal. The Xcells EC motors are designed to reduce wasted energy making them more efficient and offer a substantial step forward in helping to achieve the carbon reduction targets of the government in the coming years.
Available in four models (Xcell 700, 1200, 1500 and 2000 for varying airflow requirements), the latest additions to the Carbonlite range come with a number optional controls and ancillaries.
The range incorporates fans that meet the requirements of the new ErP regulations, due to be introduced in 2013/15. And with the energy recovery cell offering up to 44% more efficiency than the current UK building regulation requirements, the new Xcell range will meet efficiency standards for years to come.
