Unique, transparent and reliable: ASERCOM’s certification programme for condensing units is the viable response to ensure legal compliance at outstanding cost/benefit ratio. It is the answer to the Ecodesign condensing unit regulation and open to everyone.
Many components, many manufacturers, a few challenges and one solution
A condensing unit contains numerous components which influence the system’s energy efficiency. These include, amongst others, the compressor, the condenser and the fan. There are many manufacturers for each of these components throughout Europe, and these manufacturers measure and calculate the performance parameters of their components with reference to divergent standards. This means that they are not objectively comparable, which makes it difficult for customers (wholesalers, OEMs, contractors) to select optimal components and implement legislative requirements. To counter this heterogeneous landscape, ASERCOM has developed a unique programme for condensing units.
Standardized, Voluntary and Autonomous: the Certification Process
The certification process is initiated via ASERCOM‘s own software. The software uses the performance data of the individual components. The main components are the compressor, the condenser block and the fan unit. The raw performance data is received from the component manufacturer.
