Ecodesign status: Final regulation

Labelling status: Final regulation

813/2013 and 811/2013: Space and combination heaters

Last updated: 11 November 2019

Final reports for a review study of ecodesign and energy labelling for space heating boilers and combination heaters was finalized in July 2019.

Ecodesign requirements and labelling regulations for space and combination heaters entered into force in September 26, 2015. The ecodesign requirements were tightened from September 26, 2017.

Ecodesign requirements

The scope of the Ecodesign Regulation for space and combination heaters include:

  • Space heaters and combination heaters with a rated heat output of 400 kW or less.

Exceptions are, among others:

  • heaters specifically designed for using predominantly biomass fuels;
  • heaters using solid fuels;
  • heaters for drinking or sanitary water;
  • heaters for heating and distributing gaseous heat transfer media such as vapour or air;
  • cogeneration space heaters with a maximum electrical capacity of 50 kW or more.

Energy labelling

The Energy Labeling Regulation covers the same type of heating products as the Ecodesign Regulation. The difference is that only boilers and heat pumps with a nominal heat output of up to 70 kW are covered by the energy labeling requirements.
