MITSUBISHI ELECTRIC Write Off The Cost Of Heat Recovery Ventilation 

The unique Lossnay heat recovery ventilation system from Mitsubishi Electric has been re-approved and re-listed on the Government’s Enhanced Capital Allowance (ECA) scheme making energy efficiency more financially achievable in almost any situation.

The ECA scheme enables a business to claim the complete capital allowance on their spending on qualifying plant and machinery, with Lossnay listed under the ‘energy saving plant and equipment’ scheme.

Changes to the product criteria for air to air heat exchangers previously removed all heat recovery ventilation products with moving parts from the Energy Technology List. However Mitsubishi Electric’s commercial (RX5) and residential (DC) Lossnay systems now qualify under new definitions of the product criteria because of their special Hypercore.

This Hypercore is the secret of the Lossnay system with a unique, specially-designed, paper heat exchanger at its core. This allows the highly efficient transfer of heat energy through the supply and extract airflows, and enables Lossnay products to surpass the minimum performance criteria required to list the product on the ECA scheme.

“Businesses can now write off the whole of the capital cost of their investment in these technologies against taxable profits in the period during which they make the investment,” explains Philip Ord, Product Marketing Manager for Mitsubishi Electric. “This can deliver a cash flow boost, a shortened payback period and allows companies to benefit immediately from reduced energy bills.”

Developed and refined over the past 30 years, the Lossnay system has perfected the recovery of waste energy. The unit reduces overall energy costs by extracting stale air and then recovering its heating or cooling energy to either warm or cool the incoming fresh air.

By utilising this recovered energy, the Lossnay system can also save up to 30 per cent on initial capital costs of the heating and cooling plant.

The microscopically small pores in the Hypercore at the heart of Lossnay have been reduced in size even further in the latest Lossnay models allowing improved exclusion of unwanted odours from gases such as ammonia and hydrogen, whilst aiding the transfer of moisture for improved energy efficiency.

The ECA scheme is designed to promote the use of the most energy efficient products to UK businesses in a selection of key product areas.

With the introduction of Part F and L2 of the Building Regulations and with new Part L3 due at the end of the year, modern buildings are becoming more airtight, in addition to needing to be more energy efficient.

However some basic ventilation systems still mean that all of the energy spent heating or cooling an interior is simply thrown away when fresh air from the outside is introduced. The Lossnay product range fully meets these challenges due to its unique design and efficient heat recovery.

Both residential and commercial Lossnay units extract up to 70 per cent of the energy from the outgoing air which means the incoming fresh air needs much less energy to make it match the room temperature.

The Residential DC Lossnay system has also recently achieved SAP Appendix Q Best practice; the product was independently tested and validated to this important and prestigious standard by the Building Research Establishment (BRE) at their test facilities in Hertfordshire, England.

“In our built environment, we face increasing demands for energy conservation yet at the same time occupants rightly expect the highest standards of air quality,” explains Ord. “The ECA listing of Lossnay makes fresh air achievable for almost any building whilst ensuring the best levels of energy efficiency possible.”
