The use of the ErP energy label began in 1990 with its application to all household appliances: refrigerators, dishwashers, washing machines and ovens. Today, the scope of the European ErP regulation has been extended to other electrical devices such as televisions (2011), vacuum cleaners (2014), air conditioners (2013) and air-to-air heat pumps (2013). Starting from September 2015, the ErP regulation also involved appliances for space heating and for the production of domestic hot water, water heaters and storage stoves.

Minimum energy efficiency requirements for energy-efficient solutions (the Ecodesign Directive) are also defined for manufacturers of systems and combi boilers, water heaters and boilers. The directive, in force in all the countries of the European Community, and the label associated with it are intended to provide consumers with detailed information for the purchase of products for domestic use, promoting the reduction of energy consumption and the protection of environment.

Section no. 1
In the first section we find the flag of the European community and the word "energy" in different languages.

Section no. 2
The second section is reserved for the manufacturer's brand and the model number.

Section no. 3
This is the field for cooling data: energy class, theoretical load, SEER and annual energy consumption.

Section no. 4
This is one of the two fields intended for noise and specifically for that of the indoor unit.

Section no. 5
This section, on the other hand, is the one reserved for the noise level of the outdoor unit.

Section no. 6
In this section we have the data relating to heating and specifically the energy class.

Section no. 7
In this other section, also dedicated to heating, we have the other data: theoretical load, SCOP and annual energy consumption. The values shown refer to regions with a temperate climate (marked in green).

Section no. 8
Finally, the reference legislation is shown in the last field.
