As a UKAS accredited laboratory and CEN heat pump KEYMARK recognised Test Centre, BSRIA operates a specialist heat pump test chamber. We offer clients compliance testing in accordance with a range of UK and European incentive schemes, quality labels and directives in accordance with the following standards:

  • EN 14511 - Thermal performance tests to determine capacity, COP, EER and Safety tests
  • EN 14825 - Testing and rating at part load conditions and calculation of seasonal performance
  • EN 12102 - Determination of sound power level
  • EN 16147 - Testing performance rating of domestic hot water heat pumps
UKAS accredited heat pump test rig at BSRIA

Testing can be carried out on different types of heat pumps including:

  • Air source heat pumps
  • Ground source heat pumps (water and brine)
  • Split air conditioning units
  • Heat pump air curtains - including airflow tests in accordance with BS ISO 27327-1 (not covered under scope of UKAS accreditation)

We are able to determine heating and cooling thermal performance at full and part load capacity ratios, seasonal efficiency, safety testing and acoustic testing to bespoke or standard rating conditions and climates.

BSRIA also provides product development testing and our environmental chambers can be precisely controlled to a wide range of thermal conditions.

As an alternative to testing at BSRIA’s dedicated laboratory, our experienced engineers can carry out on-site testing and/or witness testing, where our consultancy services can also assist with test facility design and development.

Our experts provide a flexible and comprehensive test program tailored to meet your individual requirements.
