On 1 April 2010, EECA is raising the bar for ENERGY STAR heat pumps.
When the outside temperature drops in winter, some heat pumps struggle to keep up. So we've included a performance criteria in the new ENERGY STAR specification that's designed to ensure that a correctly sized ENERGY STAR qualified heat pump will perform efficiently at 2°C
For more information about the heat pump specification please refer to the Frequently Asked Questions document below. If you have other questions please email the ENERGY STAR team.
