Commercial HVAC, Refrigeration, and Water Heating Equipment

On January 5, 2015 the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) issued a final rule revising its regulations governing DOE verification testing of industrial equipment covered by EPCA rated with alternative efficiency determination methods (AEDMs). These regulations arose from a negotiated rulemaking effort on issues regarding the certification of commercial heating, ventilating, air-conditioning (HVAC), water heating (WH), and refrigeration equipment.
