It has been two years since the EU regulation and guidelines for mandatory labeling of newly installed space and water heating systems in all EU-member states went into effect and the LabelPack A+ partners, an EU project supporting the introduction of the package label on the market, gave a mixed review of the implementation.
The regulation required all new space and water heating solutions, products or packages, with a capacity of up to 70KW to have an energy efficiency label.
“As a result of the requirements associated with the energy efficiency label, the heating sector has brought to the market more efficient solutions. By now nearly all conventional heating systems fall under the efficiency category A, while systems using renewable options, such as solar thermal or heat pumps can reach A+ or above,” said Jörg Mayer, Managing Director of the German Solar Association (BSW-Solar).
