The new rules on energy-efficiency standards came into force across Europe on September 26 2015, after many years of study and negotiations. The new European regulation ErP requires the minimum energy efficiency, for the placing on the market of products such as boilers and water heaters.

Simultaneously, to facilitate comparison between the products, so the choice of the consumer, has tripped the affixing of an obligation 'energy label containing information including efficiency class, power consumption, noise.

This also applies to online stores that whereas before they had to indicate the class of the product, but not to denote all our other scale classes (A +, A ++, B, etc.), Thus making it difficult paragonarne efficiency, from 'entry into force of EU rules must expose the full energy labels.

It is a big change, from which we expect an equally great result in terms of reduction of emissions CO2, with the objectives set for the 2020. In fact the new rules banning traditional boilers in favor of innovative and more efficient condensing boilersExcept in some cases like in the presence of collective branched flues, not compatible with the new boilers.

It is estimated that as of 2020 the new measures on energy efficiency standards and standby energy label greatly reduce European emissions, leading to a saving of primary energy of 166 MTE, equivalent to the primary energy needs of the peninsula, ie to the consumption of about 60 million households.

The benefits arising from the new EU rules for consumers not only to protect the environment: in fact, will reduce greenhouse gas emissions responsible for climate change, but also use less energy, save on energy bills and the ability to be able to compare online products more clearly.

The Italian government implements the new EU rules on energy efficiency standards and recognizes the importance of condensing boilers, In order to reduce gas consumption and pollutant gas emissions, providing tax incentives and the 65 50%%, or through the account thermal energy. Tax deductions for the costs incurred from January 1 2016 31 to December 2016 will be accepted up to 50%, for a maximum amount of EUR 96.000.
