DOE Finalizes Regional Standards Enforcement

Regional Map

The Department of Energy (DOE) has issued a pre-publication of its finalized enforcement plan for the Regional Standard on central & single packaged air conditioners. At this time, there are no published enforcement standards for heat pumps.

Once the final rule is published, you will have 30 days to comply with the enforcement plan. The plan is listed below. Please note, the dates are tentative, pending publication of the Final Rule of the Enforcement Plan in the Federal Register.

As a contractor, if you are installing split system or package air conditioning product in the Southeast or Southwest region, effective around July 11, 2016, you will need to ensure that you are maintaining the following information about the units:

  • Manufacturer
  • Model Number
  • Serial Number
  • Date unit was purchased
  • Contact information from whom the unit was purchased (distributor contact info)
  • Date the unit was sold
  • Contact information of the purchaser (name/ address/ phone number of the homeowner)
  • Delivery address (if applicable/different from the purchaser’s contact info)
  • Installation location and contact information (name & address where the unit was installed)

You will need to maintain this information for 4 years.

Hidden Features of Ultravation UV Products

Ultravation prides itself on being a contractor-friendly manufacturer. To that end, Ultravation provides several common features on its products designed to make your life as a contractor/installer easier. How many of these features did you know about?

  1. Lamp Out Alarm. A UV lamp loses its effectiveness before it loses its ability to light. Ultravation helps you avoid awkward homeowner conversations with its Lamp Out features: a visual and audible alarm outside of the unit to notify the homeowner that the lamp needs to be replaced, and the lamp automatically turns off when the UV has lost its effectiveness. Each Ultravation UV light is guaranteed for 1 year. You can use the guarantee and the lamp out feature to maintain confidence with your customers when servicing Ultravation product.
  2. Rugged Construction. Ultravation products are made to last – with high grade stainless steel and T3 Lamp Technology, which emits up to 40% more UV than a standard bulb.
  3. QR Codes on the pieces with links to technical data so you can review wiring diagrams or other information from your smart phone.
  4. Manufactured in the USA
  5. Common Bases. Once you install an Ultravation product, you have ultimate upgrade/downgrade flexibility. Simply understand a homeowner’s need to determine your starting base. All products work off of a roughly 4.25″ base. Once you’ve installed one product, you can add on upgrade features or swap to a different base very easily. The chart below shows how the system works.

UV Explanation doc

Ultravation’s UV IAQ products are in-stock at HVAC Distributors. We also carry the M-Series UV to provide coil maintenance for ductless systems. Ultravation UV products do not produce ozone.
