TPS CHANGESCALL FOR COMMENTS


Constructive comments are invited on the revised Title, Purpose, and Scope (TPS) for the following project. TPSs for public comment can be accessed by going to ASHRAEs Standards, Research & Technology/Public Review Drafts at: http://www.ashrae.org/public-review-drafts. All activity for reviewing and commenting on public review drafts can be accomplished completely online. A login is required to complete the comment process. To obtain a paper copy of any TPS draft, contact ASHRAE Inc, Attn: Standards Section, 1791 Tullie Circle NE, Atlanta, GA 30329-2305, or email at: standards.section@ashrae.org. Note: Paper copies are available for $35.00 per copy if 100 pages or less and $45.00 if over 100 pages. Note: For new projects, only the title, purpose, and scope presented will be open for public review comments.

BACKGROUND ON TPS CHANGES


TITLE: Methods of Testing for Rating Heat Operated Unitary Air-Conditioning and Heat-Pump Equipment 1. PURPOSE: 1.1 This standard provides test methods for determining the heating and cooling output capacities and energy inputs of unitary air-conditioning and heat pump equipment that is heat-operated (see Section 3, Definitions). 1.2 These test methods may be used as a basis for rating such equipment, but it is not the purpose of this standard to specify methods of establishing ratings.

2. SCOPE 2.1 This standard applies to heat-operated unitary air conditioners and heat pumps consisting of one or more assemblies, including engine-driven systems. Where such 30-Day Public Review from equipment is provided in more than one assembly, the February 15, 2013 to March 17, 2013 separate assemblies are designed to be used together. 2.2 Equipment within the scope of this standard may be classified as follows: ANSI/ASHRAE Standard 171-2008R, Method of a.
