  4. Ecodesign and our products

Since some years, several Ecodesign directives were entered into force.

Faced to these numerous evolutions, LENNOX EMEA major actor of air conditioning help their partners to better understand the regulatory environment.

This new regulation support all the stakeholders to better promote the seasonal efficiencies and the energy savings of our products.

____________

To support that, Ecodesign is a European regulation (EEC) directly linked to the CE mark. It applies to all energy consuming products.

Many directives are included in Ecodesign (2009/125/EC).

The main concerning LENNOX EMEA products are:

EU813/2013
for comfort chillers (heating)
Application date: 26th of September, 2015

EU2016/2281
for rooftops, roomtops, contort chiller (cooling)  and high temperature process chiller
Application date : 1st of January, 2018

EU1253/2014
for the air handling unit
Application date: 1st of January, 2016

EU1095/2015
for process chiller medium temperature and condensing units
Application date: 1st of July, 2016.

The majority of these directives include two type of obligation :

Minimum performances targets to reach

Communication to the customers: the product has to be delivered with its “datasheet” with all the requested technical data as defined by the regulation (seasonal efficiencies, partial load efficiencies, acoustic level…)

 


The customer benefits


In one hand, thanks to Ecodesign calculation methods and seasonal efficiency, it is easier now to demonstrate to your customers the real performances of our units.

In an other hand, the pervasive use of EC fans and also multi-compressors (and Inverter compressor in certain cases)  has generated a real improvement of the comfort.

Do not consider Ecodesign regulation as a constraint: for our customers Ecodesign is synonym of energy saving and optimized comfort.

LENNOX EMEA has developed a dedicated tool in order to estimate the real energy savings and the Total Cost of Ownership taking into account the installation site, the thermal loads of the building, the opening hours…

Our commercial team is available to support you in this calculation.

Do not hesitate to contact your local representative.
