1.1.2 Determination of appliance heat gain to space derived from the measurement and calculation of appliance energy consumption, energy exhausted, and energy to food, based on a system energy balance;
1.1.3 Parametric evaluation of operational or design variations in appliances, hoods, or supply air.
1.2 These test methods are contained in the sections indicated as follows:
