What does LOT 20 compliant mean?
LOT20 is Europe-wide legislation that enforces minimum efficiency standards for electric space heaters, in a bid to reduce energy waste and help meet carbon reduction targets.
Relating to products manufactured after 1 January 2018, LOT 20 compliant heaters must meet the necessary guidelines. So, for example, installed heating requires new, more advanced controls, while portable heating solutions can no longer be wall mounted.
The good news is that LOT 20 compliant products are not only significantly better for the environment, but they should also save you money on your energy bills by ensuring you don’t pay for wasted energy.
