Boiler Energy Efficiency Ratings & Labels

EU Energy Labels were created to help consumers understand the energy efficiency of appliances. When shopping for a new appliance consumers can easily identify which products use less energy and produce less CO2, two factors that will help them reduce their energy bills.

EU Energy Labels grade appliances with the letters 'A' to 'G', and a colour gradient that goes from green to red. The most energy efficient products are dark green and ‘A+++’ rated, while the least efficient appliances are dark red in colour and rated ‘F’ or ‘G’.

Some of this information could be outdated as of the 01/04/2018 due to the new minimum energy efficiency standard (MEES) requirements. Find out more the regulations change here.
