The global benchmark in third-party HVAC product certification
When selecting products, the Eurovent Certified Performance mark provides peace of mind to end-users, consultants, contractors, building owners, and authorities. Rigorous and frequent third-party lab tests, factory and selection software audits ensure that products perform as claimed in catalogues and datasheets.
An innovative energy labelling scheme is available for most certified product areas, allowing you to identify the most efficient and sustainable solutions quickly.
Pacific Ventilation has been a major participant in Eurovent Certification programmes since their establishment in 1994, covering:
Air Handling Units
Hygienic Air Handling Units
Plate and Rotary Heat Exchangers
Chillers & Heat Pumps
In fact, we’re offering one of the most extensive portfolios of Eurovent Certified solutions worldwide, which underlines our stringent efficiency, sustainability and quality principles.
Our Eurovent Certified solutions undergo stringent checks, including:
Annual factory audits to ensure compliance
For tailor-made products, verification that offered products are consistent with regular production
Performance test of real units conducted in an accredited, third-party laboratory
Annual selection software audits to guarantee the validity of output data
It proves that the manufacturer’s catalogue and selection software output data are correct. It does not necessarily mean that a unit automatically complies with minimum performance regulations like Ecodesign in Europe.
The aim is to validate claims against the allowed deviations set within this certification company.
It is crucial to raise awareness of the true implications of each certification programme and differentiate between the processes behind certifications circulating in the market. The AHRI AHU certification, for example, is barely comparable with Eurovent as it is component focused by nature and lacks essential features.
The use of certified selection software prevents this issue.
The Eurovent Certification for Air Handling Units is being applied globally. Together with our industry partners, we actively work on introducing even stricter requirements, quality and verification mechanisms - ensuring that our customers receive the value they deserve.Technical Product Manager, Menerga Chairman of the Eurovent Certification Programme Committee on “Air Handling Units”
You may not have realised yet that a Eurovent Energy Efficiency Label is available for many product areas. This label provides you with
A simple solution identifying the energy efficiency of a product
Ranging from A+ (highest energy efficiency) to E (lowest energy efficiency)
Compliance with the latest EU standards. (Remember: European regulation for non-residential ventilation units covers only minimum efficiency requirements. It does not provide a single rating covering all energy-related aspects.)
Fair competition: Same rating standards apply to all manufacturers
Building on the Eurovent Energy Efficiency label, the Energy Efficiency Classes for Summer Application (EECS) label provide a straightforward reference for customers in warmer regions to choose the most suitable equipment.
EECS accounts for cooling/humidity recovery
Suitable for warmer ambient conditions
Precise conditions by city/region through the implementation of the ASHRAE database
Mandatory enforcement by Eurovent Certification as of September 2021
Eurovent also offers optional certification to guarantee the hygienic aspects of AHUs for different applications. Compared to a standard comfort unit, a Eurovent-certified hygienic AHU meets the highest health and safety standards through many features such as cleanability, accessibility, material quality and component features.
Eurovent HAHU combines the requirements of all hygienic standards in a single programme – bringing an end to the current patchwork of differing national norms. This certification is an integral part of Pacific Ventilation’s #HygienicByDesign approach.
