Linear-Fit-Based Rating Procedure for Mixed Air-Source Unitary Air Conditioners and Heat Pumps Operating in the Cooling Mode

Published

Author(s)

William V. Payne, Piotr A. Domanski

Abstract

The purpose of this report is to establish the method for determining the cooling performance ratings of air-source unitary split-system air conditioners and heat pumps consisting of an outdoor section and an indoor section that were not tested together as a complete system. The quantities calculated in this document are the cooling capacity at the A Test conditions and the SEER as prescribed by the U.S. Department of Energy in Appendix M to Subpart B of Part 430 within Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR 2005a and CFR 2005b) and by ARI Standard 210/240 (ARI 2003).
