Packaged Terminal Air Conditioners and Heat Pumps

Regulatory Language for State Equipment Standards

Packaged terminal air conditioners means a wall sleeve and a separate un-encased combination of heating and cooling assemblies specified by the builder and intended for mounting through the wall. They include a prime source of refrigeration, separable outdoor louvers, forced ventilation, and heating availability energy by builder's choice of hot water, steam, or electricity.

Packaged terminal heat pumps means packaged terminal air conditioners that utilize reverse cycle refrigeration as their prime heat source and may have a supplementary heat source available with the choice of hot water, steam, or electricity.

The minimum energy efficiency standards for packaged terminal air conditioners and heat pumps shall be the levels set forth in the table below determined in accordance with the test procedures set forth in Air-Conditioning and Refrigeration Institute Standard 310/380[-93] (see section 506.6 of this Part). [PDF] Packaged terminal air conditioners and the cooling mode of packaged terminal heat pumps shall meet the applicable energy efficiency ratio. The heating mode of packaged terminal heat pumps shall meet the applicable coefficient of performance.

a EER ("Energy Efficiency Ratio") means the ratio of net cooling capacity in Btus per hour to the total rate of electric input in watts, under designated operating conditions.
b COP ("Coefficient of Performance") means the unit less ratio of the rate of heat removal or heat delivery to the rate of energy input, in consistent units, for a complete refrigerating or heat pump system under designated operating conditions.
c CAP means capacity in KBtu/h.
