Epic ECM Fan Coil Unit

The EPIC fan coil range provides the designer with the opportunity to achieve very low specific fan power levels (SFP). This is becoming an increasingly important issue as successive building regulations slash the allowable total carbon emission from a building.

Display Energy Certificates (DEC) show the specific buildings carbon emissions as calculated by approved software. The appearance is similar to the energy labelling of domestic electrical appliances. If a similar labelling system was used for individual components in an air conditioning system the ratings for fan coil units could look like the label below.

The unique horizontally mounted ECM motor gives many benefits which may be summarised as follows:

  • The most energy efficient fan coil unit
  • Infinitely variable speed
  • Variable air volume can be easily achieved with further savings in energy consumption
  • Single motor as opposed to multiple motors means greater reliability
  • Lower life time costings compared to conventional fan coils
  • Lower noise levels
  • Ability to pre-set air volumes at the factory and fully commission the unit
  • Independently tested to British & European Standards, Eurovent 6/3 and ISO/TC86/SC6

Product Information

  • The most energy efficient fan coil unit
  • Infinitely variable speed
  • Variable air volume can be easily achieved with further savings in energy consumption
  • Single motor as opposed to multiple motors means greater reliability
  • Lower life time costings compared to conventional fan coils
  • Lower noise levels
  • Ability to pre-set air volumes at the factory and fully commission the unit
  • Independently tested to British & European Standards, Eurovent 6/3 and ISO/TC86/SC6

For the last 40 years virtually all fan coils have been constant fan speed and consequently constant air volume (CAV). Any changes in cooling or heating were adjusted by the water valve, i.e. varying the water volume.

However with the fans running at full speed all of the time this is a needless waste of energy. By varying the air volume, significant reductions in energy can be achieved and typical values for a wide range of constant and VAV fan coils is shown in the energy comparison graph

SPF Efficiency Information

SFP is a measure of how efficiently the fan moves the air over the heat exchangers within the fan coil unit. Below is a simple tabulation:-

  • Energy Efficient Brushless DC motor.
  • Significant Energy Savings
  • Unique Factory Pre-set Air Volume Capability (+/– 5%)
  • Pressure Independent Fan Operation
  • On-site Adjustable Fan Air Volume Controller
  • Remote Fan Air Volume Adjustment Capability From BMS
