Product certification tests
Our UKAS accredited laboratories for testing heat pumps are capable of determining the thermal performance of your product in accordance with BS EN 14511, BS EN 14825 and BS EN 16147, precisely and efficiently. We can assist in getting recognition for your product by providing the right accredited tests for a range of UK and European incentive schemes, such as:
- Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS)
- CEN Heat Pump Keymark (recognised test centre)
- ErP Directive
- Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SAEI)
- Product Characteristics Database (PCDB)
Our environmental chambers can handle products with different capacities, including air-to-water heat pumps (outdoor units and exhaust air unit) and ground source heat pumps. We can measure the sound power emission of mechanical and electrical (M&E) products including heat pumps, fans and Mechanical Ventilation with Heat Recovery (MVHR). The sound power level of heat pumps can be determined through testing in our acoustic facility.
