DigiENERGY in the ErP label
Since 26th September 2015, heating systems have also been provided with the well-known ErP label. This can already be found on washing machines, refrigerators and other electrical appliances. The label provides information on the energy efficiency of a product by dividing the appliances into different classes.
In addition to the individual heat generation systems, the installer will also label integrated systems. An integrated system can consist of a heat generator, a solar thermal system, a temperature controller and a peak load boiler.
For this reason, the effects of our DigiENERGY on the efficiency of the compound system are also evaluated. Because of its many functions, the DigiENERGY is classified in the highest temperature controller class, Class VIII.
Class VIII is defined as follows, according to the notification of the EU Commission (2014/C 207/02):
"An electronic controller equipped with at least three room temperature sensors, which changes the flow temperature of the water flowing out of the heater depending on the total measured deviation of the room temperature from the settings of the room temperature sensors. The control is performed by modulating the output of the heater.".
This increases the efficiency of the heat supply by 5 % according to the regulation. Although the DigiENERGY offers considerably more control options, the requirements defined in the label do not go any further.
As an installer, we provide you here with the necessary technical documentation for integrating the DigiENERGY into a integrated label.
