EWL introduces new energy icon

16/04/2015 | A new voluntary label has been introduced by the EWL to include an energy saving and range of technical icons. Although water is the main metric of the Scheme it is recognized that energy saving is also key to raising awareness amongst consumers of the importance of water efficiency. With a quarter of household energy bills associated with hot water the EWL has developed a specific label for hot water using products in the home. Along with the energy icon further technical icons have been developed which allow manufacturers to customize the label to their particular product range. These technical icons include: • Flow Regulator • Thermostatic • Cold start Position • Pull Out spray • Water break • Temperature Control • Time Flow The new label is available via the European Water Label website along with a full explanation of how to use the new technical icons on your products.
