Energy Efficiency Regulations, 2016

Version of section 134 from 2022-12-21 to 2024-02-06:


Marginal note:Energy efficiency standards — single-phase

  •  (1) The energy efficiency standards set out in column 3 of Table 1 to this section apply to single-phase split-system central air conditioners described in column 1 that are manufactured during the periods set out in column 4.

  • Marginal note:Energy efficiency standards — three-phase

    (1.1) The energy efficiency standards set out in column 3 of Table 2 to this section apply to three-phase split-system central air conditioners described in column 1 that are manufactured during the periods set out in column 4.

  • Marginal note:Testing standard

    (2) A split-system central air conditioner 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 2 that are applicable to a split-system central air conditioner as defined in section 132.
