Aereco develops innovative ventilation solutions for residential and office buildings with a key concept, the modulation of airflow rates according to the needs. With this principle associated to specific technologies, Aereco demand-controlled ventilation systems fully meet the Building current challenges with regard to energy efficiency and indoor air quality.

Aereco offers several lines of products that can be implemented in various systems, from natural and hybrid ventilation to mechanical exhaust and heat recovery ventilation.

The group, whose headquarters and factory are located in France in Marne la Vallée, is present in most countries in Europe as well as in Asia and in the USA, through subsidiaries and a wide network of distributors. Founded in 1983, Aereco Group includes today more than 350 employees.

Aereco in a few words

History

In 1983, Pierre Jardinier, a former engineer at CSTB (French Building Research Institute) was in charge of the air quality research laboratory SERVA. With two partners, he designed the first humidity sensitive extract unit that would ultimately lead to the development of Aereco as a company, from then a small basic workshop to the present 18,000 m² facility that currently producing several millions of components per year.

Convinced by the quality of their invention, these pioneers achieved great success. The humidity sensitive ventilation became more and more popular, first by the EDF energy-saving “Vivrelec” label in 1995, then by the French Thermal Regulation RT2000. The humidity sensitive ventilation has today become the referent system of the current regulation in France.

Between new products and new locations, the major milestones of the company are listed below:

Aereco, committed to sustainable development

 

banner_about_us_dev_durableSustainable development was defined in 1987 by Mrs Gro Harlem Brundtland, Norwegian Prime Minister as “development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet to their own needs”. The modes of production and consumption must respect both the human and natural environment and allow all inhabitants of Earth the satisfaction of their fundamental needs: food, a home, clothes, education, work, a life in a healthy environment… Aereco strives in its approach, its development and its commitment to meet as best possible the requirements of sustainable development.

Reducing greenhouse gases emissions by limiting heat losses

Thanks to innovative products designed to save energy in homes, Aereco contributes to the respect of the environment and to the reduction of the greenhouse gases emissions. With buildings being responsible for nearly 18% of the total production of greenhouse gases, mainly due to heating, ventilation and its impact on heat losses has become a key factor for the environment.

 

Improving indoor air quality

Beyond the energy aspect, indoor air quality is a major health issue: indeed, we spend most of our time in an indoor environment. By adjusting the rate of air renewal in relation to the level of pollution in each room of the home, Aereco ventilation systems help to improve the quality of the air we breathe.

 

Eliminating harmful substances in products and reducing waste

Aereco guarantees through appropriate specifications and practices that all components used in its products comply with the requirements of EU RoHS directive. Complying with the REACH*, Aereco also ensures the registration of chemicals substances used in its products. Recyclability of products is subject to special attention through the choice of plastics, as well as the number of parts used to perform a function. Aereco was among the first to design an eco exhaust unit for mechanical exhaust ventilation in 2010.

* REACH is the regulation on the registration, evaluation, authorisation and restriction of chemicals substances. It became effective on June 1st 2007. REACH streamlines and improves the former legislative framework of the European Union (EU) on chemicals products.
