Heat Emitter Guide

Please follow this link for MIS 3005 Heat Emitter Guide in .pdf format.

A heat pumps performance is optimised if low temperature heat emitters are used for heat distribution. The heat emitter guide for domestic heat pumps has been published by industry for use in conjunction with the MCS heat pump design standard, MIS 3005 V3.1a

The guide uses a temperature star rating to indicate how efficient the proposed system is likely to be. More efficient systems are given more stars. The maximum is 6 stars. More stars are given when lower emitter temperatures are used because the heat pump is able to operate more efficiently. The star rating below has been selected upon the worst case performing room, this ensures that all room temperatures can be met.
