Enervent Zehnder, a manufacturer of ventilation equipment for the northern European climate, has received impartial third-party certification for all ventilation units developed for residential ventilation. The Eurovent Certified Performance mark indicates that the certification of the company’s equipment is internationally recognized and approved.
Enervent Zehnder Oy, which specializes in residential ventilation solutions, has been manufacturing ventilation equipment in Porvoo in Southern Finland for more than 30 years. Many know the company as Enervent. The Swiss Zehnder Group became its owner in 2018.
Recognition by the independent Eurovent Certita Certification Body (ECC) facilitates the comparability and classification of ventilation equipment on the international market. The ECC tests examine both the energy efficiency and consumption as well as the heat recovery efficiency of the equipment to be certified.
– The EU Ecodesign Directive and the Energy Labeling Regulation for ventilation units is about the energy efficiency of the products and at the same time define which are so-called residential ventilation units, ie units developed for residential use. A residential ventilation unit is a unit with a maximum airflow not exceeding 250 cubic meters per hour or a maximum airflow of 250 to 1,000 cubic meters per hour – and the manufacturer has stated that it is intended exclusively for residential properties, says Tom Palmgren, Chief Technology Officer at Enervent Zehnder.
In addition to Finland, Enervent Zehnder sells its ventilation equipment to other Nordic countries and northern Central Europe. Eurovent certification strengthens the company’s export trade.
– We obtained certification for all our ventilation units with heat recovery and heat pump technology for ventilation in residential buildings. More specifically, this means the unit series Pinion, Salla, Svea, Pingvin XL, Pandion, Pelican, Alta, LTR-3 and LTR-5.
– Our role in Zehnder Group is to be an expert on ventilation in cold climate. Certification by an impartial body is an important guarantee of quality for us as an export company around the world. As with many other products, national certifications are available for ventilation equipment. However, their importance is limited when going beyond domestic borders, Palmgren recalls.
