Aermec raises the bar in fan coil design

The launch of Aermec’s VEC-i fan coil unit (FCU) heralds the next generation of cassette systems. The VEC-I works smarter by combining efficiencies with significant reductions in embodied carbon.

The VEC-i fan coil is a cassette type unit with a difference, featuring integrated diffusers delivering air straight into the room so that the jets of air adhere to the ceiling, creating a Coanda effect and a draught free environment.

Luigi Rossettini, Aermec S.p.A International Sales Director commented:“Aermec is a dynamic innovator and this latest product reaffirms our long-standing environmental ethos: to continually design the best energy efficient products with minimal environmental impact that addresses the needs of all our stakeholders, architects, contractors, facilities managers as well as a building’s occupants. The VEC-i offers exceptional energy savings and addresses the need to reduce embodied carbon whilst providing end users with stylish units that provide total comfort.”

Power consumption by 55% compared to a standard fan coil unit. Aermec’s VEC-i offers total comfort for a variety of projects where a compact air conditioning solution is required.

As one of Europe’s leading manufacturers of fan coil units, this latest unit is the culmination of extensive research and development and expands Aermec’s fan coil offering.

This latest fan coil unit offers impressive features including a dual intake centrifugal fan that is particularly quiet and a brushless electric motor with 0-100% continuous speed variation which allows the unit to respond to the real demands of its internal environment without temperature fluctuations.

Addressing the need to reduced embodied carbon emissions underpins the design of the VEC-i, Aermec’s strategy incorporated a holistic approach and in line with CIBSE’s own TM65 methodology focused on product weight and ease of maintenance resulting in a design that combines the smallest weight with low operational energy and ease of maintenance.

The VEC-i fan coil unit weights 32Kg and offers low embodied carbon benefits compared to standard fan coil units - 75% embodied carbon savings, and offering 85% more embodied carbon savings than chilled beams.

Aermec carried out extensive modelling. Based on a 15-year period of operation and using CIBSE’s methodology, calculated that the VEC-i represents only 18% of total embodied carbon (KgCO2e) confirming that focusing on product weight is a key variable.

Key benefits:

  • Low embodied carbon
  • Low operational energy
  • Low noise
  • Ease of Maintenance
  • Operational comfort
  • Low installation costs
  • Eurovent certified performance. 

Aermec has consistently pushed the boundaries in product design and development, the VEC-i is no exception, it is aesthetically attractive and is suitable for a wide range of projects.
