New DOE Minimum Efficiency Requirements Beginning January 1, 2023, the DOE is increasing the minimum efficiencies for central air conditioners and heat pumps.

· For air conditioners in the North,
the minimum efficiency will increase from 13.0 to 14.0 SEER under today's M test procedure

·For air conditioners in the South,
the minimum efficiency will increase from 14.0 to 15.0 SEER under today's M test procedure

· The national heat pump minimum
efficiency will increase from 14.0 to 15.0 SEER under today's M test procedure

Compliance for Existing Split System AC Inventory
Split system AC equipment manufactured prior to December 31,2022, can be installed in the South or Southwest Regions after January 1, 2023, if the units meet the following requirements:

1 If the model is discontinued by Tempstar, the least efficient coil-only SEER rating,
as listed on the EnergyGuide label, must be greater than or equal to the following:

< 45,000 Btu

 45,000 Btu

15.0 SEER

14.5 SEER

If the EnergyGuide label includes a range for the least efficient SEER rating, the lower SEER rating should be used

SEER ratings sourced from Federal Register Vol. 82, No. 4, page 1615

2 If the model will continue to be sold by Tempstar after January 1, 2023, existing
inventory can be sold if its EnergyGuide label shows a least efficient SEER rating that meets the requirements in the table above and the active published SEER2 rating exceeds 14.3.
Note: Tempstar is updating EnergyGuide labels on these products before the compliance date to minimize the amount of inventory that carries over into 2023 with Appendix M EnergyGuide labels.

3 In the Southwest region, the equipment must also meet the following EER
requirements:

> 15.0 but < 16.0 SEER

< 45,000 Btu 12.2 EER

 45,000 Btu 11.7 EER

 16.0 SEER 10.2 EER
