4/7/2010

IVT heat pumps from Sweden are the first to launch an Nordic Ecolabelled air-air heat pump. The heat pump is adapted to the Nordic climate.

First Nordic Ecolabelled air heat pumpIt is available in Sweden and Finland and will also become available in Denmark and Norway. This means that the environmentally conscious house owner now can choose a heat pump that is both climate friendly and efficient. Nordic Ecolabelling confirms that

A heat pump can be a good basis for lowering the emissions of greenhouse gases from the heating of houses. But it has to be efficient and produced in an environmentally correct way.

- What’s unique about a Nordic Ecolabelled heat pump is that it has to be efficient all year around and also adapted to the climate zone you live in. That way you save as much electricity as possible and therefore money too, says Gun Nycander, business area manager for construction and energy at Nordic Ecolabelling in Sweden.

IVT heat pumps is so far the only producer to offer ecolabelled heat pumps. They already produce Nordic Ecolabelled rock, ground and sea heat pumps. Now they are taking the next step by ecolabelling air-air heat pumps in their Nordic Inverter range, developed specifically for the Nordic climate.

– We are extremely happy to have another one of our heat pumps Ecolabelled with the Nordic Ecolabel. We want to work with sustainable production in everything we do, and our goal is to fulfil the strictest environmental standards on the market. This has now been confirmed by Nordic Ecolabelling as an independent third party, says Mats Larsson, product manager at IVT heat pumps.

Other Nordic Ecolabelling requirements
The most important thing is that the heatpump is efficient and that it follows strict environmental standards in production. Nordic Ecolabelling also ensures that the producer always provides the consumer with sufficient information and helps them to install the pump in the most effective way. The heat pump should be of high quality and the construction has to be air tight to prevent leakage of gases harmful to the environment.
