DOE/EE RIN: 1904-AF29 Publication ID: Spring 2022 
Title: ●Test Procedure for Central Air Conditioners and Heat Pumps 

DOE has proposed to amend the test procedures for central air conditioners and heat pumps that will be required for certification of compliance with applicable energy conservation standards starting January 1, 2023 to address a limited number of specific issues. DOE proposed to update appendix M and M1 to subpart B of part 430, "Uniform Test Method for Measuring the Energy Consumption of Central Air Conditioners and Heat Pumps," to fix typographical errors. DOE also proposed to amend appendix M1 to address a limited number of issues regarding, among other things, variable-speed coil-only systems, default fan power values, and wet bulb temperature. DOE intends to finalize this rulemaking later this year.
