inactive, Most Current
Organization: ACCA
Publication Date: 1 January 2010
Status: inactive
scope:

2.0 SCOPEThis Standard applies to HVAC equipment/components being installed in new and existingresidential and commercial buildings:

2.1 EQUIPMENT TYPES

2.1.1 Unitary air conditioners, air-source/water-source heat pumps, and geothermalheat pumps,

2.1.2 Furnaces (gas-fired, oil-fired, electric, and other),

2.1.3 Boilers (gas-fired, oil-fired, electric, and other).EXCEPTIONS:Due to differing design aspects and control/operation situations, built-up systems(i.e., chillers, custom or specialty-built penthouse units, etc.) are not included inthis Standard. Buildings employing built-up systems are generally designed byarchitects or professional engineers. Additionally, commercial buildings usingbuilt-up equipment are more likely to benefit from increased owner scrutiny viabuilding commissioners, owner agents, etc.

2.2 EQUIPMENT SYSTEMS / COMPONENTS

2.2.1 Heating Systems / Components - Single-zone and Multi-zone

a) Heating-only equipment and heat pumps including air-source, water-source,and geothermal heat pumps; 

b) Hot-water coil and/or fin-tube radiation, and/or unit heaters, and/or unitventilators; 

c) Electric resistance coil and/or fin-tube radiation, and/or gas unit heaters,and/or unit ventilators; 

d) Hot air heating (fossil fuel or electric furnace, direct-fired and indirect-firedmakeup air equipment); 

e) Radiant heat equipment. 

2.2.2 Cooling Systems / Components - Single-zone and Multi-zone 

a) Cooling-only equipment and heat pumps including air-source, water-source,and geothermal heat pumps; 

b) Rooftop single-zone, rooftop multi-zone (hot-deck/cold-deck)

c) Single-zone unitary (packaged terminal air conditioners/heat pumps, splitcoil-ductless).
