Energy Efficiency Regulations, 2016

Version of section 197 from 2023-06-21 to 2024-02-06:


Marginal note:Energy efficiency standards

  •  (1) The energy efficiency standards set out in column 3 of Table 1 to this section apply to large heat pumps described in column 1 that are manufactured during the periods set out in column 4 and that have no heating section or have an electric heating section.

  • Marginal note:Energy efficiency standards

    (2) The energy efficiency standards set out in column 3 of Table 2 to this section apply to large heat pumps described in column 1 that are manufactured during the periods set out in column 4 and that have a heating section other than an electric heating section.

  • Marginal note:Testing standard

    (3) A large heat pump complies with the energy efficiency standard set out in column 3 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 large heat pump as defined in section 195.
