Marginal note:Energy-using product
  •  (1) An oil-fired furnace is prescribed as an energy-using product.

  • Marginal note:Limit

    (2) However, for the purposes of sections 4, 5 and 263, an oil-fired furnace is not considered to be an energy-using product unless it is manufactured on or after December 31, 1998.

Marginal note:Energy efficiency standard
  •  (1) The energy efficiency standard that applies to an oil-fired furnace is that its seasonal energy utilization efficiency must be greater than or equal to 78%.

  • Marginal note:Testing standard

    (2) An oil-fired furnace complies with the energy efficiency standard if it meets that standard when tested in accordance with testing procedures established by CSA B212 that are applicable to an oil-fired furnace as defined in section 261.

Marginal note:Information

 For the purpose of subsection 5(1) of the Act, the following information must be collected in accordance with CSA B212 and provided to the Minister in respect of an oil-fired furnace:
