BRUSSELS, Belgium, 18 April 2023: Eurovent said it has published its first Residential Air Handling Units (RAHUs) recommendation, which focuses on Ecodesign and Energy Labelling compliance of bi-directional RVUs. Making the announcement through an April 18 Press release, Eurovent said participants of PG-RAHU prepared the recommendation in a joint effort.
The recommendation, released on April 4, aims to enhance the enforcement of Ecodesign and Energy Labelling requirements for bi-directional residential ventilation units, placed and put into service on the EU market, Eurovent said, adding that it is principally addressed to suppliers and market surveillance authorities.
According to Eurovent, the first six chapters provide the general legislative background and an overview of the specific requirements, to which suppliers are subject. Chapter 7, particularly aimed at market surveillance authorities, presents practical tips to facilitate effective compliance monitoring, Eurovent said. Chapter 8 outlines the benefits of voluntary third-party certification for monitoring product compliance, Eurovent added.
Xavier Boulanger, Strategic Technological Partnerships, ALDES, and Chairman, Eurovent PG-RAHU, said, “Since our Product Group includes many technical experts, it seemed very important for us to be able to use this expertise for the benefit of the whole profession, in order to work for quality installations that allow all our customers a perfect use and, thus, a complete satisfaction.”
Jaroslav Chlup, Head of R&D, 2VV, and Vice-Chairman of the Group, added: “It is indeed an important step, going forward. The document truly provides in-depth information for using better and less-energy-consuming residential ventilation units on the EU market. It further spreads technical knowledge about current Ecodesign rules and strengthening its market surveillance.”
