1 ErP made easy What does it mean to merchants? What does it mean to installers?

2 On 26th September 2015, changes were introduced which affect space and water heaters sold and installed here in the UK and throughout the European Union. The Energy Related Products (ErP) Directive has been designed to aid the EU in achieving its reduction targets in energy usage over the next decade. This simple guide has been designed to aid the merchants who sell Grant products and the installers who fit them, with a summary of what the ErP Directive is and how it will affect them. A Questions and Answers page has also been created on the Grant UK website. Please visit and search ErP Directive. Furthermore, the Grant Team can answer any other queries that you may have regarding the ErP - simply get in touch with us. e: t:

3 What does ErP stand for? ErP stands for Energy related Products Directive. What is the purpose of this directive? The ErP Directive has been designed to aid the EU in achieving reductions in energy usage over the next decade by detailing the minimum energy efficiency requirements which appliances must meet and preferably exceed. Environmental areas which this Directive will target include: carbon, nitrogen oxides and sulphur dioxide emissions, noise, and the use of refrigerants in heat pumps. The Directive is also designed to help end-users identify the most energy-efficient products on the market with energy efficiency labelling. What does the ErP Directive comprise of? The ErP Directive has been divided into four types of regulations: 1. Ecodesign for Space Heaters and Combination Heaters - this regulation is for heating products with a rated output of up to 400kW. 2. Energy Labelling for Space Heaters and Combination Heaters - this regulation covers products with a rated output of up to 70kW. For both regulations 1 and 2, the heaters covered are: Space Heaters (other than Heat Pumps) Heat Pump Space Heaters Heat Pump Space Heaters with fuel driven combustion unit Combination heaters (other than Heat Pumps) Heat Pump Combination Heaters Heat Pump Combination Heaters with fuel driven combustion units 3. Ecodesign for Water Heaters and Hot Water Storage Tanks - this regulation is for water heaters with a rated output equal to or below 400kW and storage tanks with a storage volume of up to 2,000 litres. 4. Energy Labelling for Water Heaters and Hot Water Storage Tanks - this regulation is for water heaters with a rated output equal to or below 70kW and storage tanks with a volume of up to 500 litres. For both regulations 3 and 4, the products covered are: Water Heaters (other than heat pumps) Storage Water Heaters (other than heat pumps) Heat Pump Water Heaters Heat Pump Storage Water Heaters Heat Pump Water Heaters with fuel driven combustion units Heat Pump Storage Water Heaters with fuel drive combustion units Hot Water Storage Tanks The ErP Directive Regulations were originally published in September The changes enforced on 26th September 2015 refer to Tier 1 of the new Regulations. During September 2016, a review of the ErP requirements will be commissioned and the following year, on 26th September 2017, the second tier of ErP requirements will be implemented. Further requirements will also come into force on 26th September 2018 and again in 2019.

4 What changes does the ErP Directive implement? Manufacturers must ensure that their products are prepared for the new legislation changes, incorporating product updates to improve efficiency levels (eg. fitting high efficiency circulating pumps). The manufacturers are also responsible for applying product fiches (data table) and the compliant energy labels within their product packaging, labels which must detail a product s energy efficiency rating. What products are affected? Some appliances, such as washing machines and fridges, are already required to clearly display their energy efficiency class. The new ErP legislation affects the majority of heating products from oil and gas boilers through to cylinders, heat pumps and solar thermal kits. Biomass boilers are exempt from this round of changes, but will be included at a future date. Below is a list of the Grant product ranges which are affected by the ErP: Vortex Oil-fired Boilers Aerona Air Source Heat Pumps Solar Thermal Systems Wave Cylinders and Thermal Stores All of these Grant products already met the ErP energy efficiency requirements. The only difference merchants and installers will notice on Grant products will be the addition of the relevant product fiche and energy efficiency label within the packaging, and of the ErP ready labels on display on the product cartons. Please note, oil boilers, heat pumps, cylinders and thermal stores will be supplied with a product fiche and product energy label, but controls and solar devices only require a product fiche so a product label will not be supplied.

5 What do the product energy labels look like? No doubt the label will be familiar to you as it is already used on a wide range of household appliances, from televisions through to dishwashers. Below is a sample of the labels appear with most of the heating appliances that you may sell or install. This is a typical product energy label that is applied to Grant oilfired boilers. The dimensions are approximately 200mm (height) x 105mm (width). This label is placed within the product packaging of Grant products. Manufacturer s or supplier s name Manufacturer s or supplier s model name or code Heating efficiency band Sound power level Heating output Which labels are visible on Grant product cartons? The ErP label pictured right is applied to the product cartons of Grant Vortex oil boilers, Aerona heat pumps, Solar Thermal systems and Wave cylinders.

6 How are the efficiency band ratings calculated? The energy efficiency classes range from A++ (most efficient) to G (least efficient). Most high efficiency boilers fall within the A and A+ bands which require a product to achieve 90% or above seasonal efficiency. All of the Grant Vortex oil boilers are A rated, with the domestic hot water side of the Combi boilers having an efficiency rating of B. Renewable technologies will most probably be classified in the A+ or A++ bands. When did the ErP changes come into force? 26th September Non-ErP ready products placed on the market* before this date can continue to be legally sold without any time constraints. Products placed on the market on or after 26th September 2015 must comply with the ErP directive, and boilers, heat pumps, solar thermals, cylinders etc. will have to have their energy label and product fiche incorporated within the product s packaging. * placed on the market means ordered, shipped, invoiced and paid for by one minute to midnight on 25th September 2015 When did energy efficiency labels start to appear within Grant product packaging? In order to comply with the ErP directive and to enable stocks to be rotated before 26th September 2015, Grant UK incorporated an energy label and product fiche in all of the packaging of the technologies listed above since the end of summer We hope that this allowed merchant stocks to rotate within the intervening months, with the energy labelled goods filling their stock levels from before 26th September Will any changes be noticeable in advertising and product literature? The ErP Directive specifies that advertising and technical promotional material for these energy-related products must include a reference to the product s seasonal efficiency class. Therefore, from now on, you will see an increase in ErP related logos and energy efficiency classes present in Grant product brochures, advertising material and also online at

7 What do the ErP Directive changes mean to merchants? The principal difference that merchants will notice on the products that they sell will be the product fiche and energy labels supplied with products. Grant product cartons will be easily identifiable with our ErP ready labels which will be applied to all updated models. Grant product codes have not changed as a result of the ErP Directive. Merchants can sell unlabelled heating products after 26th September 2015 as long as the unlabelled product was already in stock. It is not an offence for a merchant to sell a product without an ErP label after 26th September 2015 as long as that product was in stock prior to the ErP directive deadline. It is the responsibility of the manufacturer to ensure that their products fully comply with the legislation from the ErP deadline date; therefore, manufacturers must make sure that all of the aforementioned products that they put on the market place after 26th September 2015 have a product fiche and energy label. This is why Grant UK incorporated ErP labels in the cartons of their affected products from the end of the summer 2015, allowing for stock rotation in merchants in time for 26th September The ErP Directive stipulates that dealers must ensure that, at the point of sale, space heaters and water heaters bear the labels provided by suppliers on the outside of the front of the appliance in such a way as to be clearly visible. This means that products in showrooms require their energy label to be clearly displayed to end-users. If you have Grant products in your showroom and require the appropriate labels, please contact your local Grant Sales Representative. Please refer to the Eco Design Directive page later on in this guide for further information about the new requirements for appliances which have integral circulating pumps.

8 What do the ErP Directive changes mean to installers? Installers can be assured that all products manufactured after 26th September 2015 will be sold with the required ErP labels which will aid installers with their paperwork. While it is the manufacturer s responsibility to issue their products with the required labels, the installers need to calculate and issue the energy efficiency for the entire heating system. Whether installing a new heating system or installing new boilers, controls or renewables into an existing system, it was, and continues to be, the installer s responsibility to calculate and issue efficiency labels to the end-user/ householder. Installers can fit products that they purchased before 26th September If installers install heating products that they bought prior to the ErP deadline, rather than referring to an ErP label to source a product s efficiency rating, installers will need to refer back to the manufacturer (eg. their website) in order to find the necessary product rating information. Please refer to the Eco Design Directive page later on in this guide for further information about the new requirements for appliances which have integral circulating pumps.

9 What is required for heating systems that contain different products? As mentioned on the previous page, it continues to be the installer s responsibility to provide a heating system energy efficiency label to their end-users. If a heating appliance is combined with a control and/or cylinder or solar device etc., then a package label needs to be supplied. Depending on the circumstances, this could be the responsibility of the merchant (if the merchant supplies a complete package under one part number), whereas if the items are bought under separate part numbers, the responsibility will lie with the installer. Each product has a fiche and a package label is made from the information on each product fiche. The merchant or installer needs to produce a fiche along with a label that details the combined energy efficiency rating of all of the installed products, rather than the rating of each individual component. The person calculating the overall package efficiency will need to record each product on a fiche, as well as the final system efficiency. A calculator which will assist installers with this process will soon be available from Grant UK. This calculator will have the relevant information stored for each Grant product so an installer can simply select the relevant technologies that they have installed (or manually enter the energy efficiency information if combining products from more than one manufacturer) and the calculator will generate the package label. Package labels are slightly larger than product labels (minimum 210mm wide x 297mm height)....and controls? Energy controls are also affected by the ErP Directive. Controls are defined in classes with Class 1 for simple on/off room stat models through to Class VIII for multi-sensor room controls. Each class equates to a certain percentage uplift in the system efficiency (ie. high class controls will add a higher percentage efficiency to a heating system).

10 ECO Design Directive As detailed at the beginning of this guide, two of the ErP Directive s Regulations refer to the Ecodesign of Space Heaters, Combination Heaters, Water Heaters, and Thermal Stores. The ECO Design Directive requires manufacturers to improve their product s efficiency and reduce emissions. For over two years, the ECO Design Directive has specified a mandatory requirement for heating systems to be fitted with High Efficiency (HE) circulating pumps. Up until now, heating appliances which have integral pumps have not had to comply with this legislation; however, this changed on 1st August From August, any heat producing appliance incorporating a pump had to change to the HE versions. Grant products which are fitted with HE pumps (replacing the Standard Efficiency (SE) versions) include: Vortex oil boilers Aerona Air Source Heat Pumps Solar Thermal Pump Stations.

11 ECO Design Directive continued... Since 20th April 2015, Grant have fitted HE pumps into all of their manufactured oil boilers, air source heat pumps and solar thermal pump stations. Therefore, since 1st June 2015, merchants have been able to purchase Grant products fitted with the HE pumps therefore complying with the ECO Design Directive in time for merchants to hopefully have rotated their stocks in time for the 1st August 2015 deadline. Merchants can sell older appliances (with SE pumps) after 1st August 2015 as the Eco Design Directive allows them to continue to sell appliances with SE pumps, which they have in stock. After this date, manufacturers cannot supply merchants with models which are not fitted with HE pumps. This label is supplied on the packaging of the above mentioned Grant products which are fitted with HE pumps. For installers who attend product courses held by Grant UK, these new HE pumps will be shown and explained in detail by our accredited trainers. If you install Grant Vortex boilers, Aerona heat pumps or Solar Thermal systems, please contact our Training Department for more information about these courses.

12 We hope this guide has been useful, briefly outlining the changes that have been brought about this year. Remember ErP Directive Tier 1 Requirements came into force on 26th September 2015 ECO Design Directive requirement for HE pumps has been effective since 1st August 2015 If you have any further questions regarding these directives, please feel free to contact us.
