Eurovent calculates AHU life cycle costs

BELGIUM: Eurovent has released a new recommendation that enables the life cycle energy consumption and costs of air handling units to be calculated. 

The Eurovent Recommendation 6/19: Life cycle cost calculation for AHUs defines a standardised methodology for calculating the energy demand and the resulting life cycle costs of air handling units to estimate the total costs of ownership of the unit over its lifetime. 

The calculation rules defined in Eurovent 6/19 are based on scientific basics and available standards, where available, related to the performance of components in air handling units including their characteristics in part load operation.

“We are convinced that this new recommendation has significant importance to achieve a harmonised European procedure for air handling unit life cycle assessment,” said Martin Lenz, chairperson of Eurovent’s AHU product group.

“Furthermore, the methodology allows selecting the perfectly fitting air handling unit for each application based on environmental and economic aspects.” 

The document can be downloaded free-of-charge from the Eurovent Document Library.
