From 1st January 2018, all electric local space heaters manufactured for sale in the EU must comply with a minimum efficiency standard under Lot 20 of the Energy Efficiency Directive.
Electric space heaters are considered energy-related products that have a considerable energy-saving potential.
The Eco Design Directive forms the European legal framework for setting requirements for environmentally friendly design of energy-related products.
This guideline is reducing environmental impacts taking into account the entire product life cycle.
Compliance with the guideline is based on a points system rating.
Various features and functions can contribute to achieve the minimum legal requirements, for example:
The integrated control unit recognises the if a window has been opened for an extendend period and switches the radiator off.
Once the window is closed, the radiator returns to normal operation.
As a leading company creating healthy and comfortable indoor climate, Zehnder has been committed to developing innovative products that make life easier for our customers in various areas for many years.
Electric space heaters that meet the minimum requirements are therefore compliant with the Eco Design Directive – watch out for this label.
Installing heating pipes comes with much effort and costs.
Furthermore, renovating a home, installing traditional heating pipes is often not possible or economically not viable.
