The U. Department of Energy DOE proposes to revise its test procedures for central air conditioners and heat pumps established under the Energy Policy and Conservation Act. DOE received further public comment for revising the test procedure in a November Request for Information for energy conservation standards for central air conditioners and heat pumps. DOE proposes in this SNOPR: A new basic model definition as it pertains to central air conditioners and heat pumps and revised rating requirements; revised alternative efficiency determination methods; termination of active waivers and interim waivers; revised procedures to determine off mode power consumption; changes to the test procedure that would improve test repeatability and reduce test burden; clarifications to ambiguous sections of the test procedure intended also to improve test repeatability; inclusion of, amendments to, and withdrawals of test procedure revisions proposed in published test procedure notices in the rulemaking effort leading to this supplemental notice of proposed rulemaking; and changes to the test procedure that would improve field representativeness.
Some of these proposals also include incorporation by reference of updated industry standards. DOE welcomes comments from the public on any subject within the scope of this test procedure rulemaking.

Attendance at Public Meeting. Conduct of Public Meeting. Submission of Comments. Approval of the Office of the Secretary. Under EPCA, the program consists of four activities: 1 Testing; 2 labeling; 3 Federal energy conservation standards; and 4 certification, compliance, and enforcement. The testing requirements consist of test procedures that manufacturers of covered products must use as the basis for certifying to DOE that their products comply with applicable energy conservation standards adopted pursuant to EPCA and for representing the efficiency of those products.
Specifically, EPCA provides that an amended test procedure shall produce results which measure the energy Start Printed Page efficiency, energy use, or estimated annual operating cost of a covered product over an average or representative period of use, and shall not be unduly burdensome to conduct.
C b 1 A DOE last published a test procedure final rule for central air conditioner and heat pumps on October 22, Finally, in any rulemaking to amend a test procedure, DOE must determine whether and the extent to which the proposed test procedure would change the measured efficiency of a system that was tested under the existing test procedure.
This appendix covers the test requirements used to measure the energy performance of single-duct and dual-duct portable air conditioners, as defined at 10 CFR An indicator that only shows the user that the portable air conditioner is in the off position is included within the classification of an off mode. A timer is a continuous clock function which may or may not be associated with a display that provides regular scheduled tasks e. Where applicable, measure duct heat transfer and infiltration air heat transfer according to section 4. Note that if a product is able to operate as both a single-duct and dual-duct portable AC as distributed in commerce by the manufacturer, it must be tested and rated for both duct configurations. Use ducting components provided by the manufacturer, including, where provided by the manufacturer, ducts, connectors for attaching the duct s to the test unit, sealing, insulation, and window mounting fixtures.

Applies to electrically driven mechanical-compression unitary air conditioners and heat pumps consisting of one or more assemblies that include an indoor air coil s , a compressor s , and an outdoor coil s. Where such equipment is provided in more than one assembly, the separated assemblies are designed to be used together. This standard does not include methods of testing the following: cooling coils for separate use; condensing units for separate use; room air conditioners; heat-operated unitary equipment; liquid chilling packages; multiple indoor air coils operating simultaneously in heating and cooling modes.
