Installed heating will gain new, advanced controls
Portable heating can no longer be wall mounted
Electric fires will gain additional features and controls
Gas fires will now feature an energy rating (ECO) label
It will save you money on your energy bills, by preventing you paying for wasted energy
How exactly will the products change?
Lot 20 requires any installed electric heater manufactured from January 2018 to have an electronic thermostat with a 24-hour, 7 day timer with either adaptive start or an open window sensor. Currently, Dimplex already has a range of products that comply with the new legislation: Quantum, QRad, BPH and the LST. The new compliant products to look out for are the PLXE and XLE panel heaters.
This legislation only affects heaters that were manufactured after January 2018, so if you have recently invested in new installed home heating that doesn’t comply, then do not panic. If you are looking to upgrade your heating however, now is the opportune time due to the new requirements for energy saving capabilities.
All new EcoDesign compliant electric fires (except those that are portable), will include additional features which could include timer controls and remote-control heating. Please view the product listing to see which features are included in the particular product.
Under the new legislation, gas fires will now feature an energy rating ECO Label, similar to those on white goods such as fridges, which will show the heat output and the Energy Efficiency Index (EEI).
