SUBDIVISION BOil-Fired Furnaces

Marginal note:Definitions

 The following definitions apply in this Subdivision.

CSA B212

CSA B212 means the CSA standard CSA-B212-93 entitled Seasonal Energy Utilization Efficiencies of Oil-Fired Furnaces and Boilers. (CSA B212)

oil-fired furnace

oil-fired furnace means a warm-air furnace, other than a furnace for a mobile home or for a recreational vehicle, that has an input rate of not more than 65.92 kW (225,000 Btu/h) and that is either

  • (a) exclusively oil-fired; or

  • (b) capable of being fired, at the choice of the user, by either oil or another fuel. (générateur d’air chaud à mazout)

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 standards

  •  (1) The energy efficiency standards set out in column 2 of the table to this section apply to oil-fired furnaces that are manufactured during the periods set out in column 3.

  • 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 the standard set out in column 1 that are applicable to an oil-fired furnace as defined in section 261.
