Amongst the range of AHU products we design and manufacture, AirCraft Air Handling supply Heat Recovery AHUs to replace failing or high-energy consuming units and units for new installations. The principal benefit of a Heat Recovery AHU is its energy efficiency. The AHU transfers thermal energy from the exhaust air stream into the supply air stream via a heat recovery device. As a result, the AHU recovers cool air in the summer and warm air in the winter. Correctly configured a balanced heat recovery unit will recover upwards of approximately 73% of the thermal energy from the extract air stream. The Heat Recovery AHU takes advantage of the exhaust air, which is generally warmer than the fresh incoming air used in the process of heat recovery. [...]
October 2023 marks the 25th year of trading as AirCraft Air Handling Ltd and we are very proud of the enviable position of being one of the UK’s specialist AHU manufacturers. AirCraft’s history of delivering excellent customer service: One of the key contributors to our ongoing success has been our problem-solving approach towards challenging projects and requests for advice with existing and sometimes obsolete AHUs.

A vast number of buildings do not have the space for a plant room, access to a flat roof that would support an AHU or an attached secure yard for a ground-level installed unit. So, for those environments, a slimline and low-profile ceiling mounted AHU could be the answer for providing tempered and or fresh air. They are ideal for restaurants, civic buildings, and schools. Depending on their location, they can be unobtrusive or even used as a feature point in trendy commercial settings. They can be installed in ceiling voids or a false ceiling for a further concealed set-up, enhancing rather than detracting from the premises’ interior design. Within AirCraft Air Handling’s range of ceiling mounted AHUs, we manufacture Mechanical Ventilation Heat Recovery (MVHR) units [...]
Air handling systems are essential to prevent some of the common issues caused by a lack of effective ventilation. This is important in a space containing an indoor swimming pool or spa. In the case of a swimming pool, a fully operational AHU will circulate the air and replace it with fresh tempered air whilst extracting the humid stale air. The AHU also plays a role in reducing evaporation from the pool, significantly reducing energy consumption and associated costs, by maintaining the ambient air temperature just above the water temperature. Enclosed air will naturally become humid where there is a pool. This humidity is likely to cause problems for the building and its users. The tell-tale signs of inappropriately high levels of moisture in a pool [...]
A well-designed and manufactured Fresh Air AHU is one of the most economical ways to serve clean fresh air into a building. A Fresh Air AHU needs to be capable of filtering the air drawn from outside the building, as well as cooling or heating the air as appropriate. To help with this, the team at AirCraft Air Handling can help with advice and specifications when needed, if you or your customer need assistance. The need for fresh air in an enclosed area, typically like that of a catering environment, can be addressed through the installation of the Fresh Air AHU. Fresh Air Units operate by filtering and conditioning air drawn from outside the building. The tempered and filtered fresh air is then ducted into the [...]
