An energy-efficient building needs to be as airtight as possible and have a high degree of insulation. An airtight building consumes little energy, although this in turn requires efficient ventilation for the building to be able to breathe.

What is ErP and Ecodesign?
ErP stands for “Energy Related Products”. ErP is supported by Ecodesign Directive (2009/125/EC), which is aiming towards significant reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and overall energy consumption by the year 2020. While supporting efficient use of energy and energy related products and phasing out inefficient products, the Ecodesign Directive also makes energy information and data about energy-efficient products more transparent and easy accessible for consumers.
The implementation of the Ecodesign Directive is split into a number of product areas, called ”lots”, focusing especially on the areas with significant energy consumption. Ventilation units are included in Ecodesign Lot 6, concerning ventilation, heating and air conditioning, an area, which represents about 15% of the total energy consumption in the EU.
Air tightness is key to energy reduction.
The major areas of energy consumption in buildings are heating, cooling and ventilation. An air tight ventilation system is key to lowering the energy consumption. Lindab is the first supplier in the world to offer ventilation ducts in the highest tightness class.
