Buy ENERGY STAR® to save money!
Boost your bottom line with ENERGY STAR certified light commercial heating and cooling equipment that uses about 6% less energy than standard equipment. Choosing an ENERGY STAR certified commercial air-source central air conditioner or commercial air-source heat pump delivers savings and reduces your carbon footprint.
ENERGY STAR certified commercial air-source central air conditioners and commercial air-source heat pumps cover a wide range of capacities, between 19 kW (65,000 Btu/h) and 223 kW (240,000 Btu/h). As with all HVAC equipment, it is essential to properly size your equipment. Properly sized equipment cuts energy costs, increases the life of the equipment, and reduces greenhouse gas emissions.

The ENERGY STAR Promise
All ENERGY STAR certified products are tested to meet strict efficiency specifications and are certified by an independent third party. They perform the same as or better than standard products without compromising performance in any way.
Regulations set the energy efficiency minimum
Many types of heating and cooling equipment must meet minimum energy efficiency standards as regulated under Canada’s Energy Efficiency Regulations.
Specific details on the current Regulations are as follows:
- Large Air Conditioners, Heat Pumps and Condensing Units –with a cooling capacity of at least 19 kW (65,000 Btu/h) but less than 223 kW (760,000 Btu/h).
- Single-Phase and Three-Phase Single-Package Central Air Conditioners and Heat Pumps – with a cooling capacity of less than 19 kW (65,000 Btu/h).
- Single-Phase and Three-Phase Split-System Central Air Conditioners and air-to-air Heat Pumps –with a cooling capacity of less than 19 kW (65,000 Btu/h).
The Regulations help eliminate the least efficient products from the Canadian market.
