Eco-design Lot 20 Compliant
Everything you need to know about the new Lot 20 Eco-design legislation.
Built for You and designed to comply with the ecodesign requirements for local space heaters “LOT 20″.
Every thermostat control feature has a set value that will positively contribute to the electric heater’s efficiency rating, and the more sophisticated the level of control, the larger the percentage bonus it will offer. Basic analogue controls do not fare so well. Only new digital programmers, app and sensors will be now used to achieve these new eco design standards.
The Ecodesign Directive a real Innovation
This directive was created so that energy-using electric radiators, space heaters products would have a framework of basic requirements to make them as efficient and environmentally friendly as possible. Lot 20 relates to local space heaters and includes products such as storage heaters, electric radiators,panel heaters.
In a nutshell :
“All local space electric heaters manufactured for sale in the EU after 1st January 2018 which use electricity, or liquid fuels, must comply with a minimum efficiency standard. This includes electric radiators, electric under floor heating and electric and gas fires.”
Intelligent controls of your electric heaters will incorporate three key features:
24 hour or Timer Control. This could be an integrated programmer, or a Wifi connected internet based smartphone app controller.
Thermostatic Control with an accurate room temperature measurement by an electronic digital thermostat.
Smart Start Control. V27, Open door, window recognition, presence detection technology reduces wasted energy when the thermostat detects a drop in temperature, uses of sensors to enable the heater to automate heating cycles.
