CEN - EN 13203-6

Gas-fired domestic appliances producing hot water - Part 6: Assessment of energy consumption of adsorption and absorption heat pumps

active, Most Current
Organization: CEN
Publication Date: 1 August 2018
Status: active
Page Count: 50
ICS Code (Water heating equipment): 91.140.65
scope:

This European Standard is applicable to gas-fired appliances producing domestic hot water. It applies to sorption heat pumps connected to or including a domestic hot water storage tank. It applies to a package marketed as single unit or fully specified that have:

- a heat input not exceeding 400 kW; and

- a hot water storage tank capacity (if any) not exceeding 2000 l.

In the case of combination boilers, with or without storage tank, domestic hot water production is integrated or coupled, the whole being marketed as a single unit.

EN 13203-1 sets out in qualitative and quantitative terms the performance in delivery of domestic hot water for a selected variety of uses. It also gives a system for presenting the information to the user. The present document sets out a method for assessing the energy performance of the appliances. It defines a number of daily load profiles for each domestic hot water use, kitchen, shower, bath and a combination of these, together with corresponding test procedures, enabling the energy performances of different gas-fired appliances to be compared and matched to the needs of the user. Where other technologies are combined with a gas-fired boiler or a water heater to produce domestic hot water, specific parts of EN 13203 apply.

Horizontal ground heat sources are not covered by the scope of the present European Standard.
