When determining the energy performance of a heat pump according to the NEN 7120 standard, the efficiency is expressed in terms of the coefficient of performance (COP). The COP relates the amount of heat that a heat pump emits to the energy used for it.

The efficiency of a heat pump can be determined by the Kiwa experts in its own laboratory. Here, by simulating the different conditions of use in test arrangements, the annual efficiency of a heat pump can be determined, both for heating and for tap water. If this meets the requirements, then a NEN 7120 quality declaration follows. Kiwa can test brine/water, water/water and air/water heat pumps according to the NEN 7120.
