We often read about the Ecodesign Directive 2009/125/EC, EU Directive 2015/1188.
This directive stipulates that every heater used indoors must meet specific criteria. Consequently, it is obligatory that electric heaters used indoors must, among other things, have a electronic room temperature control system in connection with a weekday control system as well as other control options.
Even if HEATSCOPE® radiant heaters were actually designed and developed for outdoor use, they can also be used indoors. Therefore, the Ecodesign Directive applies.
And: With HEATSCOPE®, observing this Ecodesign Directive is not a problem at all!
HEATSCOPE® PURE design, VISION ambient and SPOT power heaters are delivered by the manufacturer without the mandatory control unit pursuant to the EU directive 2015/1188.
That is not only sensible but saves valuable resources and still consists of the greatest possible freedom of choice!
It is often the case, that there is already a separate temperature control system in accordance with the Ecodesign Directive on location (with weekday control system, window opening detection, etc.) and the radiant heater is to be integrated into it. In this case, the customer respectively the hired electrician is responsible for observing the EU directive and the Ecodesign Directive.
Of course it is possible, to equip HEATSCOPE® infrared heaters (all PE, VE and SM models) with thermostat control units in accordance with the Ecodesign Directive.
We recommend DEVIreg
- ™ Smart thermostats.
- Certified according to EU directive & Ecodesign Directive;
- incl. weekday control system (different heating periods per day);
- adjustment of the max./min. temperature, target/actual performance measurement);
- room sensors, floor sensors and window opening detection as well as remote control option/app control.
The thermostats are already preprogramed and can be easily installed indoors between the infrared heater and the power source.
