ErP - The Energy Related Products Directive


The Energy Related Products Directive, or ErP, aims to make it easier for homeowners to choose an efficient heating system by introducing a clear labelling system, similar to those we already see on white goods such as fridges or washing machines.

ErP ready

Active from the 26th September 2015, ErP affects the way that product manufacturers, suppliers and installers display and recommend heating systems to customers. A heat source, such as a boiler or heat pump, will now come with a product energy efficiency rating from A++ to G. System packages, e.g. a boiler being installed with thermostats, will also come with an energy efficiency rating from A+++ to G, calculated by the installer.

Installers: Energy labelling – how to do it yourself

In this video, we will guide you through the process of calculating your own energy rating and producing a system label. It’s simple to do and only takes a few minutes. We have used a standard combi boiler and thermostat system in our example.

 

Calculation forms

You can download our free, easy-to-follow calculation forms in PDF format. Simply enter relevant information from the manufacturer’s product fiche into the boxes to calculate the energy efficiency percentages. Then, use the table to find the system’s energy rating.

The video above will talk you through this process.

Generate a system package label

Once you have the energy efficiency rating for the system, simply fill out the relevant form on the EU’s official label generation website. Follow the Nu-Heat redirects below:
