S&P’s high efficiency range of commercial heat recovery AHUs, the RHE series, has successfully been accepted onto the Energy Technology List (ETL). The ETL is a government-managed list of energy-efficient plant and machinery and is part of the Enhanced Capital Allowance (ECA) tax scheme for businesses. Businesses that pay income or corporation tax are able to claim 100% first year capital allowance on a product if it’s on the ETL at the time of purchase.
In order to be listed on the ETL must undergo a rigorous approval process and satisfy extremely high levels of efficiency. Only a handful of manufacturers have succeeded in having complete AHUs listed, with some only managing to get the thermal recuperator module approved in isolation. Being elligible for 100% capital allowance can significantly improve the financial viability of installing a high efficiency heat recovery ventilation for clients and end users.
The RHE range is a state-of-the-art ventilation unit featuring up to 88% thermal efficiency thanks to a rotary wheel recuperator. All models feature fully packaged controls capable of remote monitoring and BMS integration. Options include built in electric heating, LPHW heating, reversible heating/cooling coil and DX cooling. Nominal airflows range from 700m3/h up to 10,000m3/h (0.19 m3/sec to 2.7 m3/sec), and outdoor versions are also available.
The units are fully compliant with both current and 2018 ErP regulations relating to Ventilation Units, and meet or exceed all current UK & Ireland building regulations (when correctly selected and installed in a correctly designed system)
