Xpelairís Xcell 150U mechanical ventilation unit with heat recovery is recognised by EC Appendix Q and joins the companyís recently launched CarbonLite range of low-energy and long-life ventilation products. These units can extract air from kitchens and bathrooms and distribute recovered heat to other rooms.

These new units are rated at 150 m3/h of air at 150 PA. They can be installed vertically on a wall, in an airing cupboard or utility room. They are only 260 mm deep, so they can also be fitted to a ceiling or in a loft space.
