Electricians are landing in hot water, from failing to install electric space heaters that meet the new Eco-Design ‘Lot 20’ Legislation (2015/1188/UE - ERP 2009/125/CE)
Their installation meets all current Electrical wiring standards and practices; but if the product they are installing is not compliant with Lot 20 Legislation, they can be in trouble.
As qualified tradesmen, you are all aware that this law came into effect on 1stJanuary 2018, but suppliers have not cleared their non-compliant stock and you could be buying electric radiators that do not comply. Be sure to ask your suppliers for compliant models which must have intelligent room temperature controls to minimise wasted energy, showing that they comply with Energy Related Products Regulations (ERP).
This includes ALL electric heaters using use electricity or liquid fuels, electric radiators, electric underfloor heating and electric and gas ﬁres.
