Safety Standard for Air-conditioning and Heat Pump Systems in Residential Applications
This standard specifies safe design, installation, operation and maintenance of air-conditioning systems in residential applications.
This standard establishes safeguards for life, limb, health and property and prescribes safety requirements.
This standard applies to the design, installation, operation and maintenance of mechanical air-conditioning and heat pump systems installed in stationary applications that include:
- one and two-family dwellings (single family detached, duplexes and townhomes), or
- multi-family structures with individual dwelling units, where each dwelling unit has its own heating and air-conditioning system, or
- outbuildings and pool houses located on the same private property as a one and two family dwelling
