Central Air Conditioners and Heat Pumps

Friday, April 11, 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 This document also removes the standards for air conditioners that were superseded effective in 2006, and the now defunct references to the “through-the-wall air conditioner and heat pump” product class, including the definition and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.
