BSRIA offers part-load testing of heat pumps
BSRIA now carries out part-load testing of heat pumps as part of its scope of UKAS (United Kingdom Accreditation Services) accreditation. BSRIA already provides heat-pump testing in accordance with BS EN 14511 and BS EN 12102 and is now accredited to test to meet with BS EN 14825 for part-load testing and seasonal efficiency.
A purpose-built facility enables BSRIA to determine heating and cooling thermal performance at full and part-load capacity ratios, seasonal efficiency, safety testing and acoustic testing to bespoke or standard conditions and climates.
Rebecca Hogg, who manages the heat-pump test facility, said, ‘The extension of our scope complements our existing UKAS-accredited testing services and provides the customer with the assurance they are getting internationally recognised quality test data.
‘Independent laboratory testing gives confidence to customers and consumers and plays an important role when delivering a product to market.’
