How should packages consisting of both a space heater a water heater and a ventilation unit be labelled and documented?

An assessment of the contribution from the discharged air from the ventilation unit (after the passive heat exchanger) is not defined in the regulations.

As such, the combined unit needs to be tested as prescribed by the regulations on space heaters, water heaters and ventilation units and the relevant standards. If the mentioned contribution is not considered in the Regulation or harmonised standards, then it cannot be taken into account.
