ErP/ELD - Greener heating and hot water
EU regulations point the way to a greener future. Vaillant helps you get there.
Since September 26, 2015, EU regulations have been implemented that impact all boilers and heating systems installed after this date. Known as the ErP (Energy-related Products) Directive, these establish legally binding criteria for energy efficiency and emissions.
Designed to help you make informed choices about the best heating and hot water solution for your home, a key part of the regulations also requires products to display labels containing information on their efficiency and performance.
Just like the labels you are familiar with from white goods such as washing machines and fridges, they classify devices according to efficiency bands ranging from G to A++ for boilers and from F to A+ for hot water tanks and water heaters.
As a consequence of the new regulations it is no longer possible to install non-condensing boilers, with only few exceptions. Given that they are considerably more energy efficient, condensing boilers now provide the standard solution for most small and medium size installations.
Long at the forefront of condensing technology, Vaillant manufactures a range of highly efficient condensing boilers that readily comply with the new directives. To increase their efficiency further, these can be combined with Vaillant renewable technologies such as heat pumps and solar panels to create a truly green and sustainable heating and hot water solution for your home.
