The ErP Directive For Ventilation units
Raising efficiency and lowering energy consumption: To achieve these aims in ventilation units, regulations 1253/2014 and 1254/2014 came into force on 1 January 2016 as part of the ErP Directive. On 1 January 2018 these regulations will be further strengthened.
Differentiation into three categories.
The regulations are relevant for ventilation units with electrical power consumption of more than 30 W. They are divided into three categories according to air flow rate:
- Up to 250 m³/h air flow: Residential ventilation units (1254/2014)
- Between 250 and 1,000 m³/h air flow: Ventilation units for residential and non-residential buildings.
- Above 1,000 m³/h air flow: Ventilation units for non-residential buildings (1253/2014)
Above 1,000 m³/h air flow, the Directive differentiates between simple air supply or air exhaust units and units that combine both functions.
