Sept. 26th, 2015 … welcome to the new heat pump labelling

September 26th will be a significant date for air to water and water to water heat pumps. On this day, in fact, the European Directive 2009/125/CE will find implementation for these kinds of products through two Regulations which will be immediately mandatory for all Europe: no. 811/2013 and no. 813/2013 concerning respectively the Eco-design requirements and the Energy labelling for air to water and water to water heat pumps. The aim of new Directive is the continuous progress of new products. The new labels will be mandatory for heat pumps with nominal capacity up to 70 kW. Heat pumps will be divided in low temperature and medium temperature applications. This is a medium temperature application energy label:

Main changes introduced by new labelling are:

  • Low and medium temperature applications heating performance declarations required
  • Seasonal space heating energy efficiency
  • Energy efficiency classes from A++ to G
  • Heating capacity declaration in accordance with climatic areas (colder, average and warmer)
  • Sound power declaration (indoor value only if necessary)

Products put on the market before 26th of September, even not compliant with new Directive, may be sold and installed.
