From the 26th of September 2015 there will be new EU information requirements for heat generators, water heaters, hot water storage tanks, and packages.
From this day onwards, the above product categories have to be provided with an energy label similar to those on household appliances. This is the result of EU regulations. The consumer has to be informed and motivated to buy efficient appliances.
The mandatory labelling applies to:
• Hot water storage tanks up to and including 500 l storage volume
• (Combination) heaters and water heaters up to 70kW
• Combinations of these products with control systems and solar units as a package (up to 70kW and 2000 l)
The energy label provides better opportunities for comparison when buying a heating system. For end consumers it will be easier to incorporate energy efficiency into the buying decision process.
