SUBDIVISION FSingle Package Vertical Heat Pumps

Marginal note:Definition of single package vertical heat pump

 In this Subdivision, single package vertical heat pump means a single package commercial heat pump that is encased, that has its major components arranged vertically and that

  • (a) is air-cooled and uses reverse cycle refrigeration as its primary heat source; and

  • (b) is intended for mounting through, or on either side of, an exterior wall.

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

  • Marginal note:Limit

    (2) However, for the purposes of sections 4, 5 and 209, a single package vertical heat pump 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 heat pumps described in column 1 that are manufactured on or after January 1, 2011.

  • Marginal note:Testing standard

    (2) A single package vertical heat pump 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 heat pump as defined in section 207.

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 heat pump:

  • (a) its classification set out in columns II and III of Table 2 of CSA C746-06;

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

  • (c) its energy efficiency ratio;

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

  • (e) its heating coefficient of performance.

SUBDIVISION GSplit-System Heat Pumps

Marginal note:Definition of split-system heat pump

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

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

  • Marginal note:Limit

    (2) However, for the purposes of sections 4, 5 and 213, a split-system heat pump is not considered to be an energy-using product unless it is manufactured on or after December 31, 1998.
