SUBDIVISION ESingle Package Vertical Air Conditioners

Marginal note:Definition of single package vertical air conditioner

 In this Subdivision, single package vertical air conditioner means a single package commercial air conditioner, with or without heating capability, that has its major components arranged vertically, is air-cooled and encased and is intended for mounting through, or on either side of, an exterior wall. It does not include a single package commercial air conditioner that has reverse cycle refrigeration.

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

  • Marginal note:Limit

    (2) However, for the purposes of sections 4, 5 and 130, a single package vertical air conditioner is not considered to be an energy-using product unless it is manufactured on or after January 1, 2011.

Marginal note:Energy efficiency standards
  •  (1) The energy efficiency standards set out in column 2 of the table to this section apply to single package vertical air conditioners described in column 1 that are manufactured on or after January 1, 2011.

  • Marginal note:Testing standard

    (2) A single package vertical air conditioner complies with the energy efficiency standard if it meets that standard when tested in accordance with testing procedures established by CSA C746-06 that are applicable to a single package vertical air conditioner as defined in section 128.

Marginal note:Information

 For the purpose of subsection 5(1) of the Act, the following information must be collected in accordance with CSA C746-06 and provided to the Minister in respect of a single package vertical air conditioner:

  • (a) its classification as set out in column II of Table 1 of CSA C746-06;

  • (b) its cooling capacity, expressed in kilowatts (British thermal units per hour); and

  • (c) its energy efficiency ratio.

SUBDIVISION FSplit-System Central Air Conditioners

Marginal note:Definition of split-system central air conditioner

 In this Subdivision, split-system central air conditioner means a single-phase or three-phase central air conditioner that is a split-system and that has a cooling capacity of less than 19 kW (65,000 Btu/h).

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

  • Marginal note:Limit

    (2) However, for the purposes of sections 4, 5 and 134, a split-system 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 split-system central air conditioners described in column 1 that are manufactured during the periods set out in column 4.

  • Marginal note:Testing standard

    (2) A split-system 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 split-system central air conditioner as defined in section 132.
