Eurovent’s essential guide to AHUs

BELGIUM: A new guide from the Eurovent Association provides essential information on air handling units.

Produced by the Eurovent Association’s Product Group AHU, the 53-page guide is designed to provide all essential information on this important piece of equipment in a hands-on and neutral manner. It includes information on application areas, functions and components, energy efficiency and life-cycle costs, control system, design and selection, certification, as well as standards.

Martin Lenz of Trox GmbH, the AHU product group’s chairman, said: “Our goal was to create a non-academic, concise, and easy to read publication that enables readers to better understand the heart of a ventilation system.”

Morten Schmelzer, the Eurovent Association’s executive director, said: “It was of specific importance for us to highlight the state-of-the-art in technological development while raising awareness on core aspects such as life-cycle costs, design and selection. We want readers to be able to make an unbiased assessment of what defines a high-quality air handling unit and why, for instance, the initial price should not be the main purchasing argument.”

The Eurovent Guidebook Air Handling Units is free to download from the Eurovent website.
