The Eurovent Association’s Product Group AHU has just published the first release of its Guidebook on Air Handling Units.
The 53 page, free-of-charge publication provides essential information on this important piece of technology in a hands-on and neutral manner.
The Eurovent AHU Guidebook provides, for instance, valuable information on application areas, functions and components, energy efficiency and life-cycle costs, control system, design and selection, certification, as well as standards.
It is not only targeted at producers, but of equal relevance for consultants, planners, architects, testing agencies, and everyone else having to deal with Air Handling Units in their everyday life.
Martin Lenz of Trox GmbH, chair of the Eurovent Product Group AHU, said it is the most comprehensive and all-encompassing guidebook on air handling units published to date.
“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,” he said.
Morten Schmelzer, executive director at the Eurovent Association and secretary of the Product Group, said it was important to highlight 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,” he said.
