4 questions to better understand ErP regulation and the new heating system’s energy labelling.


1- WHAT IS THE ERP REGULATION ?
 

ErP or Energy-related Product regulation aim to improve the energy efficiency of equipment that consumes energy in order to help the environment protection. The ErP Directive is based on two regulations :
 

The Ecodesign Directive (2009/125/EC): manufacturers must undertake to incorporate environmental characteristics into every stage of a product's life cycle. Products that meet ecodesign requirements bear the “CE” marking and can be marketed anywhere in the European Union.

The Energy Labelling Directive (2010/30/EU): defined and standardised values are used to classify products according to their energy efficiency. It offers consumers a way of comparing performance before they purchase and lets you buy more energy-efficient products.



2- WHICH INSTALLATIONS ARE AFFECTED ?

Since 26 September 2015, the measures relating to ecodesign and energy labelling were supplemented by rules that apply to new product families, considered as lots :

- Lot 1 concerns:
• heating equipment (boiler, heat pump)
• combined systems made up of heating equipment, a temperature controller and a solar device

- Lot 2 concerns:
• water heaters, hot water tanks
• combined systems made up of a water heater and a solar device.
• In this way, the new heating or domestic hot water systems are now classified from G to A++ depending on their energy efficiency.


3- HOW CAN WE FIND OUT THE PERFORMANCE OF DELTA DORE CONTROL PRODUCTS ?

To determine the efficiency of a combined system, the technical specifications of the components are included in the performance evaluation. As a result of their features, Delta Dore heating control products are classified in category IV. This category is incorporated into the general calculation of the energy efficiency of the heating system installed.
 

Class Savings  
CLASS I 1% On/off room thermostat (mechanical)
CLASS II 2% Control based on outdoor temperature, for use with modulating output heaters
CLASS III 1.5% Control based on outdoor temperature, for use with ON/OFF output heaters
CLASS IV 2% ON/OFF TPI room thermostat for use with an ON/OFF output heater
CLASS V 3% Modulating room thermostat for use with a modulating output heater
CLASS VI 4% Control based on outdoor temperature and room sensor, for use with modulating output heaters
CLASS VII 3.5% Control based on outdoor temperature and room sensor, for use with ON/OFF output heaters
CLASS VIII 5% Multi-zone control with temperature sensors, for use with modulating output heaters

4- WHAT OBLIGATIONS DO PROFESSIONALS HAVE ?

Following the installation of your new heating device, your installer will issue a sticker that indicates the efficiency of your combined system. Obligations might depend on countries.

To be able to produce this energy efficiency label, your installer must know the ErP class of the installed heating generator and Delta Dore regulation products.
A list of the Delta Dore products affected by this Directive can be obtained by downloading the summary sheet of the ErP energy efficiencies of our products.
