energy optimisation

Less energy consumption for more savings

Representing 40% of energy consumption in Europe, the construction industry has to work hard to bring about energy change. New buildings already comply with regulatory expectations in this respect. The main sources of savings now focus on renovation and managing energy usage.
By combining the most efficient and innovative products and using renewable energies, CIAT systems offer the best energy signature notably by contributing to a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions.
They also meet the demands of current and future European regulations and labels.


Intelligent solutions for more efficiency

CIAT designs, develops and manufactures its products with a constant concern for performance.

  Consume less

Many of its thermodynamic machines meet the most stringent classification (class A) in both cooling mode (EER and SEER) and heating mode (COP). The same applies to the HEE comfort units and the air handling units that use a high efficiency heat recovery unit. Numerous solutions have been incorporated to achieve substantial energy savings: for example, Brushless motor technology in comfort units (HEE) and EC fan motor assembly as standard on the dual-flow range of Floway units. Each element has been designed to ensure energy savings without compromising on performance and efficiency.




HEE motors

CIAT was the first manufacturer to integrate  "Brushless” motor technology. Today, this  technology is standard for all new building and renovation projects. All CIAT comfort units are fitted with this new technology.

All performance data for the products are certified and can be checked on the Eurovent certification organisation's website.

  Recover more

 The principle of recovery is simple: because air conditioning is based on the transfer of heat, CIAT has designed a system for recovering the calories that until now had been wasted. This system allows total or partial recovery from water chillers. For total recovery, a water-cooled condenser is installed upstream of the air-cooled condenser. Partial recovery is carried out by a “desuperheater exchanger” installed on the compressor discharge. The recovery of heat from the air is also carried out by a dual-flow air handling unit, thanks to the integration of a rotary heat exchanger, plate recovery unit or a heat pipe.


  Optimise and control

CIAT offers solutions to optimise energy for the whole installation with Smart CIATControl. Connected to all HVAC components (refrigeration, comfort units, air handling unit) and using a patented algorithm, Smart CIAT Control adapts the efficiency of the thermodynamic producer to the needs of the emitters in real time. The controllers on the comfort units also have eu.bac 0.2 certification, an indicator of accuracy and energy performance.
