eu.bac Updates its Energy Efficiency Labelling Scheme for Home Controls and Building Automation Products

eu.bac, the European Building Automation and Controls Association, developed in 2014 a voluntary labelling scheme in order to improve the readability and the understanding of its previous one. However, in order to avoid some potential confusion between the European energy labelling scheme and the voluntary eu.bac labelling scheme concerning products for home controls and building automation, as well as building automation systems, eu.bac has taken the decision to modify its design.

The main changes to the eu.bac labelling scheme are summarised below:
– 6 Energy classes instead of 7
– Class A+ becomes to AA

Products for home controls and building automation as well as building automation systems have a significant influence on the overall energy efficiency of buildings. One of the reasons why the voluntary eu.bac labelling scheme has been introduced is to help the users to make informed choice when it comes to energy efficient products and systems. Additionally, the eu.bac product labelling scheme relies on strong accredited third party certification testing. The eu.bac Building Automation System certification is done by accredited Auditors.

The eu.bac Certification scheme assures users that the products and systems are in conformity with European Standards. It is an open system and is also a symbol that stands for energy efficiency and quality. It is the European voluntary quality label for products for home controls and building automation as well as building automation systems.
