Energy Efficiency Regulations
Amendment 14 to the Energy Efficiency Regulations was published in Canada Gazette Part II on October 31, 2018. While some provisions come into force upon publication, most provisions of this Amendment will come into force on April 30, 2019. The Guide to the Regulations will be updated with new requirements for affected products in time for the coming-into-force of the Amendment.
Internal water loop heat pump, a water-source single package or split-system heat pump that is factory-built, is intended for installation in an internal water loop systems and has a cooling or heating capacity of not more than 40 kilowatts (135 000 Btu/h)
Manufactured on or after February 3, 1995
Energy efficiency regulations by province
Some provinces also have their own energy efficiency regulations for many of the federally regulated products – find out which ones!
Energy efficiency standard
|Product type||Mininum COP|
|Cooling COPc||Heating COPh|
< 5 kW
|≥ 3.28°C with 30°C inlet water||≥ 4.2°C with 20°C inlet water|
≥ 5 kW and ≤ 40 kW
|≥ 3.52°C with 30°C inlet water||≥ 4.2°C with 20°C inlet water|
COP = Coefficient of performance – a ratio for both the cooling COPc and heating COPh modes calculated by dividing the capacity expressed in watts by the power input in watts, excluding any supplementary heat
