7.4.3 Efficiency Standards for Commercial Air Conditioners and Heat Pumps (1)
Type Cooling Capacity (Btu/hr) Category (2) Efficiency Level
Small commercial package air conditioning <65,000 AC SEER = 13.0
and heating equipment (air-cooled, HP SEER = 13.0
three-phase)
Single package vertical air conditioners and <65,000 AC EER = 9.0
single package vertical heat pumps, HP EER = 9.0, COP = 3.0
single-phase and three phase
Single package vertical air conditioners and ≥65,000 and <135,000 AC EER = 8.9
single package vertical heat pumps HP EER = 8.9, COP = 3.0
Single package vertical air conditioners and ≥135,000 and <240,000 AC EER = 8.6
single package vertical heat pumps HP EER = 8.6, COP = 2.9

Very large commercial package air- ≥240,000 and <760,000 HP COP = 3.2
conditioning heat pump
Note(s): EER = Energy Efficiency Ratio, COP = Coefficient of Performance. 1) Effective for products manufactured on or after January 1, 2010, excpet for air-cooled, three-phase small commercial package air-conditioning and heating equipment <65,000 Btu/hr for which standards are effective for products manufactured on or after June 16, 2008. 2) AC = Air Conditioner, HP = Heat Pump. 3) Applies to equipment with electric resistance heating or no heating. 4) Applies to equipment with all other integrated heating-system types.
