Energy Efficiency Description:

Regulations on gas-fired space and water heating installations (covering both liquefied and natural gas) took effect in April 2010 replacing a simular regulaton from 2000. While covering various technical aspects, they also established minimum thermal efficiency requirements for gas-fired heating installations. For those installed prior to 1 January 1992 this must be 87%, increasing to 89% for those installed after 1 January 1992. For equipment installed after 1 January 1998, the thermal efficiency requirements are as follows: 4-25 KW: 89%; 26-50 kW: 90%; 51-3000 kW: 91%. In addition, installations must be inspected every four years by a certified inspector. Aditionally all installations older than 15 years are suject to a unique inspection taking into account the overall efficiency and the dimension of the system.
