Marginal note:Definitions

 The following definitions apply in this Subdivision.

CSA C744-04

CSA C744-04 means the joint CSA and AHRI standard ANSI/AHRI 310/380-2004/CAN/CSA-C744-04 entitled Standard for Packaged Terminal Air Conditioners and Heat Pumps. (CSA C744-04)

CSA C744-14

CSA C744-14 means the joint CSA and AHRI standard ANSI/AHRI 310/380-2014/CAN/CSA-C744-14 entitled Standard for Packaged Terminal Air Conditioners and Heat Pumps. (CSA C744-14)

packaged terminal air conditioner

packaged terminal air conditioner means a factory-built packaged terminal air conditioner that

  • (a) consists of a wall sleeve and a separate unencased cooling component and is intended to cool a single room or zone; or

  • (b) consists of a wall sleeve and a separate unencased combination of heating and cooling components and is intended to heat and cool a single room or zone. (climatiseur terminal autonome)

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

  • Marginal note:Limit

    (2) However, for the purposes of sections 4, 5 and 122, a packaged terminal air conditioner is not considered to be an energy-using product unless it is manufactured on or after December 31, 1998.

Marginal note:Energy efficiency standards
  •  (1) The energy efficiency standards set out in column 2 of the table to this section apply to packaged terminal air conditioners that are manufactured during the periods set out in column 3.

  • Marginal note:Testing standard

    (2) A packaged terminal air conditioner complies with the energy efficiency standard if it meets that standard when tested in accordance with testing procedures established by the standard set out in column 1 that are applicable to a packaged terminal air conditioner as defined in section 120.

SUBDIVISION DSingle Package Central Air Conditioners

Marginal note:Definitions

 The following definitions apply in this Subdivision.

single package central air conditioner

single package central air conditioner means a single-phase or three-phase central air conditioner that is a single package unit and that has a cooling capacity of less than 19 kW (65,000 Btu/h). It does not include a single package vertical air conditioner. (climatiseur central monobloc)

through-the-wall

through-the-wall means, in respect of a single package central air conditioner, one that has a cooling capacity less than or equal to 8.79 kW (30,000 Btu/h) and that is designed to be installed through an exterior wall. (mural)

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

  • Marginal note:Limit

    (2) However, for the purposes of sections 4, 5 and 126, a single package central air conditioner is not considered to be an energy-using product unless it is manufactured on or after February 3, 1995.

Marginal note:Energy efficiency standards
  •  (1) The energy efficiency standards set out in column 3 of the table to this section apply to single package central air conditioners described in column 1 that are manufactured during the periods set out in column 4.

  • Marginal note:Testing standard

    (2) A single package central air conditioner complies with the energy efficiency standard 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 single package central air conditioner as defined in section 124.
