Eco information system

Current EU requirements have stipulated an energy label for heating systems since 26 September 2015. These are known from televisions, refrigerators and other household appliances. Since 01.04.2017 this also applies to solid fuel boilers up to 70 kW and their combination with control technology and solar support as a compound system.

The HVAC sector and in particular the heating wholesalers are thus facing a major challenge. Already when preparing offers for heat generators, water heaters, storage tanks and compound systems, the customer receives information on the energy efficiency of the products offered in the form of a data sheet and an energy label.

In the simplest case of a system consisting of one component, this corresponds to the manufacturer's documentation. In the case of composite systems consisting of several components from different manufacturers, things become complicated. Extensive data research and complex calculations are required.

The XS-Öko-Infosystem bundles and automates these tasks. All required information is collected flexibly and made available individually.



Product data

In addition to the general manufacturer data, the following data is supplied:

Manufacturer article number

Article description

Energy efficiency class

Product type according to ErP directive

Detailed technical information (definition and value)

PDF file of the label and product data sheet ( for each official language)

Your solution for the energy label in the heating market

The XS-Öko-Infosystem collects all required information in a flexible way and makes it available individually to the in-house systems of the wholesale trade as well as to the market partners.

Perfect data according to the ecodesign directive

Perfect data from product suppliers are important for the implementation of the ecodesign directive. Both complete systems and individual components must be maintained.

The following product types are supported for energy labelling:

  • Room heaters with boiler

  • Combined heat and power room heaters

  • Room heating appliances with heat pump

  • Low temperature heat pumps

  • Combination heaters with boiler

  • Combination heaters with heat pump

  • Compound system room heaters temperature control and solar equipment

  • Compound system combined heater temperature control and solar system

  • Conventional water heaters

  • Solar water heaters

  • Water heater with heat pump

  • Hot water tank

  • Compound system water heater with solar installation

  • Temperature controller

  • Solar controller

  • Temperature controller and solar controller

  • Solar facility

  • Collector

  • Solar storage tank

  • Solar pump

  • Solar group

Our solution supports you with the following functions

Supplier self-service

Suppliers make their data available in a self-service area. Suppliers maintain the necessary data for the energy labels independently in this area. This minimizes your data maintenance effort, but you can also upload assortments into the system independently.

Professional data validation

Provided data is automatically checked by the system and the supplier is requested to correct it. Standard templates for the various components (product categories) are already stored in the system.

Support for own brands

You can also store your own brands in the system.

Clear functions for the craftsman and wholesale trade

In addition, you have further functions:

Flexible product range organization

You have the control over the data in the system, their presentation and, if necessary, their prioritization

Use of VdZ assortments

Data already existing in the industry do not need to be maintained twice. You can retrieve the data that exists in the VdZ system (heating label) and use it in your system

100% illustration of the standard

The requirements of the current standard are fully illustrated

System calculation for compound systems

In addition to individual components and complete units, compound units can also be calculated in the system and an associated label in accordance with the ecodesign directive can be created. In the compound system calculation the suitable components are offered in each case, so that the use is very easy

Standard interfaces (IDS, WebService)

Industry-wide standard interfaces help with integration

Integration of the craftsmen and their software

A direct integration of the internal wholesale systems is carried out in an analogous manner

Choice of web interface or process integration

The eco information system can be used in two ways. In a simple form the surfaces of the eco information system can be used by the customer. If a deep integration into the IT landscape and processes is desired, ERP or shop systems can also be connected to the eco information system via a surfaceless web service.

Generation of labels and product data sheets

Necessary labels are automatically generated by the system in the prescribed format. In addition to the energy labels, the required product data sheets are also generated for compound systems

Rapid implementation of the energy label in trade

We know the industry, the market partners and the software solutions and interfaces used. The system can be used on your side with minimal effort. The eco information system can also be used as a rental solution from the cloud

Standard solution = very fast implementation

The solution requires only minimal customizing and can be used directly after installation

Documented interfaces for easy integration

The eco information system already offers interfaces for integration into your systems as standard. You can implement a connection independently via the documentation.

Individual adjustments possible if requested

If adaptations and further integrations into your systems are desired, ITEK is a competent partner by your side.

Book: B2B digitilization in HVAC wholesale

Academy / News  - 
Competitive, customer loyalty or cost reduction: inter-company digitisation is right at the top of the sanitary, heating and air-conditioning technology wholesale agenda and offers a lot of potential. The german book "B2B Digitalisierung im Sanitär Heizung Klima Großhandel" now provides a practical reference book for strategic implementation on the basis of industry standards.

The small book for decision maker in the sanitary, heating and air-conditioning technology wholesale explains the current standards in the B2B communication and their strategic use. Among other things, it explains the roles of market participants, the processes to customers and suppliers, the relevance of Building Information Modeling (BIM) and product master data as well as the importance of platforms. In addition, concrete recommendations for the implementation of corresponding digital strategies are given.
