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 heat pump

packaged terminal heat pump means a factory-built packaged heat pump that consists of a separate unencased refrigeration system and uses reverse cycle refrigeration as its primary heat source. (thermopompe terminale autonome)

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

  • Marginal note:Limit

    (2) However, for the purposes of sections 4, 5 and 201, a packaged terminal heat pump 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 heat pumps that are manufactured during the periods set out in column 3.

  • Marginal note:Testing standard

    (2) A packaged terminal heat pump 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 heat pump as defined in section 199.

SUBDIVISION ESingle Package Heat Pumps

Marginal note:Definitions

 The following definitions apply in this Subdivision.

single package heat pump

single package heat pump means a single-phase or three-phase air-to-air heat pump that is a centrally ducted single package unit and has a cooling or heating capacity of less than 19 kW (65,000 Btu/h). It does not include a single package vertical heat pump. (thermopompe monobloc)

through-the-wall

through-the-wall means, in respect of a single package heat pump, 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. (murale)

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

  • Marginal note:Limit

    (2) However, for the purposes of sections 4, 5 and 205, a single package heat pump 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 heat pumps described in column 1 that are manufactured during the periods set out in column 4.

  • Marginal note:Testing standard

    (2) A single package heat pump 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 heat pump as defined in section 203.
