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 and has a cooling capacity of less than 70 kW (240,000 Btu/h).

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 during the periods set out in column 3.

  • 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 C746-17 that are applicable to a single package vertical heat pump as defined in section 207.
