Upgrading to EC motors for energy savingsEC Motors for supply and extract fans

Many older Commercial buildings with HVAC equipment continue to use inefficient equipment, and rather than having to buy brand new equipment, a more cost effective option is to upgrade the fans fitted to the existing equipment to new high efficiency EC fans.

EC technology is intelligent technology, they use integral electronic control in the fan to ensure that the motor always runs at optimal load EC stands for Electronically Commutated and it combines AC and DC voltages, bringing the best of both technologies. The motor runs on a DC voltage but with a normal AC supply. These fans are capable of intelligent speed control with further reduced energy consumption. They are a far better option than just an Inverter replacement.

Upgrading to EC fans offers the following benefits:

  • Up to 70% reduction in energy consumption
  • Integrated, indefinately variable speed control
  • Reduced noise
  • Payback period as low as 2 years
  • Direct drive motors for maintenance free operation

In many cases belt driven fans are directly interchangeable with their inefficient predecessors, allowing for simple replacement with minimal disruption.
