1 The Parker Ranch installation in Hawaii Appliance Standards and Rulemaking Federal Advisory Committee (ASRAC) Commercial HVAC, WH, and Refrigeration Working Group (ASRAC)

2 Formation of the Working Group On February 26, 2013, the Department of Energy (DOE) Appliance Standards and Rulemaking Federal Advisory Committee (ASRAC) established the Commercial HVAC, WH, and Refrigeration Working Group (Working Group) to negotiate certification requirements for commercial heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning (HVAC), water heating (WH), and refrigeration equipment. The Working Group was directed to provide a progress report by June 24, 2013, and a final report by August 30, 2013, with recommendations for ASRAC to adopt.

7 AEDM – Alternate Energy Determination Method AEDMs are computer modeling or mathematical tools that predict the performance of non-tested basic models. They are derived from mathematical models and engineering principles that govern the energy efficiency and energy consumption characteristics of a type of covered equipment. These computer modeling and mathematical tools, when properly developed, can provide a relatively straight-forward and reasonably accurate means to predict the energy usage or efficiency characteristics of a basic model of a given covered product or equipment and reduce the burden and cost associated with testing.

8 AEDM – Alternate Energy Determination Method For each AEDM, a manufacturer should select the minimum number of models that meet the following criteria for each of the validation classes to which the AEDM is going to apply, where a manufacturer distributes in commerce equipment falling into each of the validation classes. A manufacturer may elect to develop multiple AEDMs per validation class and each AEDM may span multiple validation classes, however, the minimum number of tests must be maintained per validation class for every AEDM a manufacturer chooses to develop. Each selection represents a single test conducted in accordance with the DOE test procedure (or applicable DOE TP waiver) at a manufacturers testing facility or a third-party testing facility, whose test result should be directly compared to the result from the AEDM. All documentation of test results for these models, the AEDM results, and subsequent comparisons to the AEDM should be maintained as part of both the test data underlying the certified rating and the AEDM validation package pursuant to 10 CFR Part 429.71.

9 AEDM – Alternate Energy Determination Method AEDM Tolerances (Unanimous) In order to validate the AEDM, the test results from each model required per the validation requirements above must be compared to the simulated results from the applicable AEDM. The Commercial Certification WG recommends the following tolerance requirements to validate the AEDM: For energy consumption metrics, the AEDM Result for Model A must be greater than or equal to the test result for Model A * 0.95; and For energy-efficiency metrics, the AEDM Result for Model A must be less than or equal to the test result for Model A*1.05.

10 AEDM – Alternate Energy Determination Method Verification Tolerances EquipmentApplicable Tolerance & Associated Metric Commercial Warm-Air Furnaces 5% on Thermal Efficiency Commercial Refrigeration Equipment 5% on Daily Energy Consumption Variable Refrigerant Flow ACs and HPs 5% on EER and COP and 10% on IEER Air-Cooled, Split and Packaged ACs and HPs less than 65 MBtu/h Cooling Capacity (3-Phase) 5% on SEER and HSPF and 10% on EER Air-Cooled, Split and Packaged ACs and HPs greater than or equal to 65,000 Btu/h Cooling Capacity and Less than 760,000 Btu/h Cooling Capacity 5% on EER and COP and 10% on IEER Water-Cooled, Split and Packaged ACs and HPs, All Cooling Capacities 5% on EER and COP and 10% on IEER Water-Source HPs, All Capacities 5% on EER and COP and 10% on IEER Single Package Vertical ACs and HPs 5% on EER and COP Packaged Terminal ACs and HPs 5% on EER and COP

11 AEDM - Consequences for Invalid Rating Number of Invalid Certified Ratings from the same AEDM** within a rolling 24 month period Required Manufacturer Actions 2 Submit different test data and reports from testing to validate that AEDM within the validation classes to which it is applied.* Adjust the rating as appropriate. 4 Conduct double the minimum number of validation tests for the validation classes to which the AEDM is applied. Note, the tests required under subsection (c)(5)(H)(1) must be different tests on different models than the original tests required under subsection (c)(2). 6 Conduct the minimum number of validation tests for the validation classes to which the AEDM is applied; And Conduct addition testing, which is equal to ½ the minimum number of validation tests for the validation classes to which the AEDM is applied, at either the manufacturers facility or a third-party test facility, at the manufacturers discretion. Note, the tests required under subsection (c)(5)(H)(1) must be different tests on different models than the original tests required under subsection (c)(2). >=8 Manufacturer has lost privilege to use AEDM. All ratings for models within the validation classes to which the AEDM applied should be rated via testing. Distribution cannot continue until certification(s) are corrected to reflect actual test data. *A manufacturer may discuss with DOE s Office of Enforcement whether existing test data on different basic models within the validation classes to which that specific AEDM was applied may be used to meet this requirement. **Where the same AEDM means a computer simulation or mathematical model that is identified by the manufacturer at the time of certification as having been used to rate a model or group of models. The twenty-four month period begins with a DOE determination that a rating is invalid through the process outlined above. Additional invalid ratings apply for the purposes of determining the appropriate consequences if the subsequent determination(s) is based on selection of a unit for testing within the twenty-four month period (i.e., subsequent determinations need not be made within 24 months).

20 Definition of Engineered to Order An engineered to order basic model is a basic model that is not listed in any catalogs or marketing literature and is designed and built to customer requirements. An engineered to order is not offered as a configure to order or menu-system set of options. A basic model may not be classified as engineered to order for more than one annual certification cycle (effectively not to exceed 24 months). Engineered to order basic models are not published on the DOE web site. Engineered to order basic models are automatically recorded as discontinued at the second annual certification.

21 Certification: Engineered to Order BM Each basic model, including an engineered to order basic model, must be certified prior to distribution in commerce. For engineered to order products, distribution in commerce is defined as the date on which the basic model is shipped (domestic) or imported (foreign). For other domestic manufactured products, distribution in commerce is defined as the date on which the manufacturer is first willing to accept an order. For foreign manufactured products (other than engineered to order), distribution in commerce is either when the manufacturer imports the product for sale or the manufacturer is first willing to accept an order, whichever is first.
