The EHPA quality label for heat pumps originates in activities of the heat pump associations of Austria, Germany and Switzerland to create a common set of requirements to ensure product and service quality for heat pumps (named D-A-CH quality label after the countries international codes). The idea has been further developed in the European Heat Pump Association (EHPA) and the country scope has been extending. In order to reflect this development, the D-A-CH quality label has been gradually replaced by the EHPA Quality Label (EHPA-QL). In addition to the founding countries the EHPA Quality Label has gradually expanded to other European countries – nowadays the Q label is issued in 12 countries.
The Q label can be granted to standardised space heating electrically-driven heat pumps, with or without domestic hot water heating capability, with a capacity up to 100 kW from air, geothermal or water heat sources. In order to qualify for the label, the heat pump in question must comply with EHPA heat pump test criteria and the distributor must provide a defined level of service.
Minimum requirements for SCOP of heat pumps for space heating in average climate conditions using low temperature application according to EN 14825 (SCOP)
Minimum requirement for domestic hot water heat pumps according to EN 16147:
Minimum reference hot water temperature θ’WH 52 °C
SZU as an accredited testing laboratory recognized by the EHPA offers testing in the full range of EHPA requirements for all heat pumps except for air / air units.
Asociace pro využití tepelných čerpadel (Heat Pump Association - AVTČ), is entitled to grant certificates (Q labels) in the Czech Republic. It is made based on application, inspection of test reports and test certificates issued by a recognized testing laboratory, inspection of documentation and other required documents. Such certificate can also be used when applying for subsidy programs in some European countries.
