Central Air Conditioners and Heat Pumps

April 11th 2014

On April 11, 2014 the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) adopted into the Code of Federal Regulations the definitions for “through-the-wall central air conditioner” and “through-the-wall central air conditioning heat pump” that were established in section 5 of the American Energy Manufacturing Technical Corrections Act. This document also removes the standards for air conditioners that were superseded effective in 2006, and the now defunct references to the “through-the-wall air conditioner and heat pump” product class, including the definition and standards.
