F280-12 - Determining the required capacity of residential space heating and cooling appliances
Itís imperative that residential space heating and cooling systems have the proper output capacity. Too little or too much capacity can create a dangerous and uncomfortable living environment. This new standard provides guidelines for contractors and installers on calculating proper heating and cooling system energy capacity for appliances used in housing and small buildings of residential occupancy to which Part 9 of the National Building Code of Canada applies. F280-12 - Determining the Required Capacity of Residential Space Heating and Cooling Appliances also provides restrictions on selecting the output capacity of a specific space heating or cooling appliance or group of appliances.
This standard works in conjunction with C22.2 NO. 280-13 - Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment (Tri-national standard, with UL 2594 and NMX-J-677-ANCE-2013)
