Heat pumps and air conditioning

Heat pumps provide an environmentally friendly way to both heat and cool buildings and to take care of hot water supplies. An increasing number of new products are for that reason emerging in the marketplace, all of which must comply with European directives. These heat pumps all need to get tested and certified. Kiwa can help you with a heat pump certification trajectory.
