1. ECO CONCEPTION Directive

A guarantee that the market's most 'energy-hungry' products will disappear.
In the residential market, thanks to energy labelling, the consumer can more easily identify the energy performance levels of each product; Clear indications of the electricity consumption and noise levels of each device facilitate comparison and choice. For commercial ventilation units, not covered by this energy labelling system, professionals can also compare the global energy performance of each manufacturer's products, using our independent index rating.
