SUBDIVISION GLarge Condensing Units

Marginal note:Definition of large condensing unit

 In this Subdivision, large condensing unit means a commercial or industrial condensing unit that is intended for air conditioning applications and that has a cooling capacity of at least 40 kW (135,000 Btu/h) but not more than 70 kW (240,000 Btu/h).

  • SOR/2018-201, s. 27

Marginal note:Energy-using product

  •  (1) A large condensing unit is prescribed as an energy-using product.

  • Marginal note:Limit

    (2) However, for the purposes of sections 4, 5 and 138, a large condensing unit 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 large condensing units described in column 1.

  • Marginal note:Testing standard

    (2) A large condensing unit complies with the energy efficiency standard if it meets that standard when tested in accordance with testing procedures established by CSA C746-98 that are applicable to a large condensing unit as defined in section 136.
