DOE Publishes a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking, Public Meeting and Request for Information Pertaining to Test Procedures for Air-Cooled Three-Phase, Small Commercial Package Air Conditioning and Heating Equipment and Air-Cooled, Three-Phase, Variable Refrigerant Flow Air Conditioners and Heat Pumps

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has published a Federal Register notice proposing to amend its test procedure for air-cooled, three-phase, small commercial package air conditioning and heating equipment with a cooling capacity of less than 65,000 British thermal units (Btu/h) per hour and air-cooled, three-phase, variable refrigerant flow air conditioners and heat pumps with a cooling capacity of less than 65,000 Btu/h to incorporate by reference the latest version of the relevant industry test standard. DOE also proposes to adopt the seasonal energy efficiency ratio 2 (SEER2) and heating seasonal performance factor 2 (HSPF2) metrics specified by that industry test standard in the DOE test procedures for the three-phase equipment that is the subject of this notice of proposed rulemaking (NOPR). Additionally, DOE proposes to amend certain provisions for representations and enforcement to harmonize with single-phase products.
