For the good of the environment:
Compliance with ecodesign directive
The Ecodesign Directive (EU 2015 / 1188) lays down requirements for the placing on the market and putting into service of household local space heaters. The aim of the Directive is the environmentally compatible design and labelling of local space heaters and the associated reduction of energy consumption.
alre welcomes this development and the demand for energy-saving control technology. The development and production of innovative and products optimised for energy consumption has been our calling for almost 50 years.
The Directive distinguishes between different types of heating, electric local space heaters and local space heaters for gaseous or liquid fuels.
The electric local space heaters are additionally subdivided into:
- portable local space heaters;
- fixed local space heaters;
- Storage local space heaters;
- underfloor local space heaters;
- Radiant local space heaters.
Central space heaters that distribute heat to different rooms via a liquid medium are not affected by this regulation.
The following table lists the products that comply with the Directive for use in portable local space heaters, fixed local space heaters and underfloor local space heaters. If you have any questions about suitable products for other types of heating, please do not hesitate to contact us.
