SUBDIVISION BLarge Air Conditioners

Marginal note:Definitions

 The following definitions apply in this Subdivision.

AHRI 340/360

AHRI 340/360 means the AHRI standard ANSI/AHRI 340/360-2007 entitled Performance Rating of Commercial and Industrial Unitary Air-Conditioning and Heat Pump Equipment. (AHRI 340/360)

IEER

IEER means the integrated energy efficiency ratio, expressed in British thermal units per watt hour, that constitutes a single number cooling part-load efficiency metric of a large air conditioner. (IEER)

large air conditioner

large air conditioner means a commercial or industrial unitary air conditioner with a cooling capacity of at least 19 kW (65,000 Btu/h) but less than 223 kW (760,000 Btu/h). It does not include a single package vertical air conditioner. (climatiseur de grande puissance)

Marginal note:Energy-using product
  •  (1) A large air conditioner is prescribed as an energy-using product.

  • Marginal note:Limits

    (2) However, for the purposes of sections 4, 5 and 118, a large air conditioner is not considered to be an energy-using product unless

    • (a) in the case of a large air conditioner with a cooling capacity of less than 70 kW, it is manufactured on or after December 31, 1998; and

    • (b) in the case of a large air conditioner with a cooling capacity of 70 kW or more, it is manufactured on or after January 1, 2010.

Marginal note:Energy efficiency standards — cooled by air
  •  (1) The energy efficiency standards set out in column 3 of Table 1 to this section apply to large air conditioners that are cooled by air and described in column 1 and that are manufactured during the period set out in column 4.

  • Marginal note:Energy efficiency standards — cooled by water or evaporation

    (2) The energy efficiency standards set out in column 3 of Table 2 to this section apply to large air conditioners that are cooled by water or evaporation and described in column 1 and that are manufactured during the period set out in column 4.

  • Marginal note:Testing standard

    (3) A large air conditioner complies with the energy efficiency standard set out in column 3 if it meets that standard when tested in accordance with testing procedures established by the standard set out in column 2 that are applicable to a large air conditioner as defined in section 116.
