The Air Conditioning Contractors of America Educational Institute (ACCA-EI) Standards Task Team (STT) announces an American National Standards Institute (ANSI) public review period for the "BSR/ACCA 3 Manual S - 201x, Residential Equipment Selection" as a revised and redesignated industry standard. The 45 day public review period started on 10 May 2013 with a comment deadline of 24 June 2013.
This revised standard provides procedures for selecting and sizing residential comfort cooling and heating equipment. The standard has been divided into two parts – a 'normative' portion that details the selection/sizing criteria and an 'informative' portion that provides discussion, guidance, and example problems related to procedure intent and use.
A review version of the proposed Second Edition of Manual S (dated 17 April 2013), and the public review response form, can be downloaded from www.acca.org/industry/ansi-standards/under-review.
