Heating Appliance Ordinance 1982
The Heating Appliance Ordinance ("Verordnung über energiesparende Anforderungen an heizungstechnische Anlagen und Brauchwasseranlagen (Heizungsanlagen-Verordnung - HeizAnlV)") posed requirements to the equipment and dimensioning of central heating systems using water as the energy carrier as well as on hot water systems. Specific requirements additionally applied to single heaters.
The ordinance was issued fort he first time on 22 September 1978, came into effect on 1 October 1978 and was amended for the first time on 1 June 1982. Additional amendments followed in 1989, 1994, and 1998.
The amendment of 1982 was above all characterized by the first-time introduction of refurbishment norms in the energy saving legislation. Control systems (central systems for the disconnection of heat supply; room thermostat) had to be retrofitted henceforth for certain existing systems (§ 7). Further essential changes of the material regulations were included in the norms for the insulation of pipes (§ 6) and in the norms for the dimensioning of heat generators (§ 4).
In 2002, the Heating Appliance Ordinance and the Thermal Insulation Ordinance were merged into the Energy Saving Ordinance. The current state of regulations for heating- and hot water systems is
- Here §§ 13 and 14 and parts of §11.
