ARE HIGH EFFICIENCY PUMPS MAKING A REAL DIFFERENCE?
- What effect has ErP had on the pump market place in the UK so far? Small circulating pumps are a key component of all wet heating systems in the UK - whether traditional boiler driven systems or new renewable systems. They perform as standalone pumps or as integrated pumps in combi and system boilers and they keep the water circulating in underfloor heating systems too. They are responsible for a much higher percentage of overall household electricity usage than many still realise which is why old uncontrolled pumps were targeted by European legislation as a key way of reducing energy usage in the home, reducing energy bills and reducing emissions. They offered a real way of making strides towards meeting the ambitious environmental targets set by the UK Government and European legislators.
