Energy-efficient insulated roof fan with a direct current (DC) motor, controlled with a 0–10 V voltage. The inner pipe is constructed from galvanized sheet metal and has a lip seal. A VILPE® ECo Controller and a VILPE® pass-through according to the roofing material are required separately.

The roof fan can also provide an output signal which can be used to monitor the motor’s rpm. This allows connecting ECo roof fans to an automatically controlled building technology system where they can be monitored and controlled with the system’s central processing unit (CPU).

The fan is based on the EC technology, i.e. an electronically commuted fan with a brushless DC motor. ECo roof fans address the challenge of reducing total energy consumption by saving energy, as the DC motor is much more effective than an alternating current (AC) motor. Calculations on the efficiency needed to move air show that a VILPE® ECo roof fan will save up to 40–60% of energy when compared to an AC roof fan, depending on the application.

VILPE® ECo roof fans meet the requirements of the ERP2015 directive.


  • Suitable for use in kitchen or bathroom exhaust ventilation as part of the air conditioning systems of new apartment buildings and private and terraced houses. When refurbishing older apartment buildings and private and terraced houses, natural ventilation can be converted to mechanical by means of the VILPE® ECo roof fan.
  • Suitable for the ventilation of homes, offices, commercial premises, production facilities, public buildings and any other areas where fresh air is needed. In apartment buildings, ECo roof fans can be used for exhaust ventilation in lift shafts and other public areas.
  • VILPE® ECo is also used for base floor ventilation, radon exhaust ventilation, and exhaust ventilation in garages and storerooms.
