To fight against climate change, the EU has set new limits on energy efficiency and pollutant emission for heating equipment and hot water. The new thresholds are applicable since 26 September 2015. Explanations.
De best energy for condensing boilers
The high-efficiency boilers, also called low temperature, no longer quite successful under this new regulation, will no longer be manufactured (but be marketed until stocks last). Beyond the boilers, all heat generators are concerned, but also some of their components (such as the circulating pump heating circuit, which consumes much less power than yesterday). Similarly, air conditioners and air-to-water heat pumps must have higher SCOP (SCOP is the seasonal efficiency of the heat pump, depending on the climate. It is more realistic than the COP, measured outside temperature 7 ° C).
An energy label for boilers and water heaters
We know it all! It appears long on appliances as well as air conditioners. We now see the on boilers and water heaters, whether electric, gas, or even solar thermodynamic. It is designed to allow us to compare products from one brand to another, but also of energy to another for the same product family, the scale is the same, regardless of the energy . Thus, the solar water heater is the highest ranked system.
Some boilers are exceptions to the all-condensing
There are exceptions to the all-condensation: they concern some gas wall boilers installed in apartment buildings, which require technical adaptations at the smoke extraction. Until reliable and financially competitive technical solutions are deployed, high-efficiency boilers are allowed in homes that have them.
