LabelPackA + presented the information campaign aimed at owners of properties that intend to replace their old heating or water heaters. The European project was funded under Horizon 2020 and led by Solar Heat Europe .
With the entry into force in 2015 of the European regulation with related mandatory labeling guidelines for household appliances , consumers have access to more information when buying a heating system.
However, European consumers are often forced to change heating systems due to breakages and malfunctions during the winter, in urgent conditions. It is therefore difficult to compare the alternatives on the market to choose the one that best suits your needs.
Spring is therefore the ideal time to gather the necessary information on new heating systems and prepare for the replacement of the old system.
#CheckYourHeating therefore aims to inform consumers and promote the replacement of old and inefficient heating systems . The campaign, which will last until mid-June, is aimed at owners of properties that intend to replace their old heating systems or water heaters.
“We have found that customers are rarely aware of the energy label for new heating systems. They hardly consider it in their decision-making process when they buy a new plant, “commented Pedro Dias, Secretary General of Solar Heat Europe .
