Chinese fakes in more than one way

When you are talking fake or pirated goods from Asia/China you usually talk about goods claiming to be produced by a brandowner. In Danish paper “Ingenøren” there is a story about legitimate Chinese products faking test scores. Several brands of heat pumps are sold with seemingly faked testresults for energy consumption. One of the heat pump boasts of an “A” mark but fails so badly in an independent test that the mark should be an “F”. 


Lesson learned is that you should always buy products where you are sure that both the product itself and tests of the product are done in a controlled environment.
