ACCA Initiates New Standard on HVAC System Design for
Energy Efficient Homes.
Will Provide Procedures to Design/Select HVAC Systems
and Equipment for Low-Load Homes.
The Air Conditioning Contractors of America Educational
Institute (ACCA-EI) Standards Task Team (STT) announced
that it has initiated the development of BSR/ACCA 16
Manual E-201x, “HVAC System Design for Energy Efficient
Homes” as a new industry standard.
ACCA said HVAC designers are increasingly encountering
energy-efficient homes, characterized by markedly
reduced heating and cooling loads, as a result of
numerous national initiatives like the energy
conservation code, the U.S. Environmental Protection
Agency’s (EPA’s) Energy Star, the U.S. Department of
Energy’s (DOE’s) Zero Energy Ready program, and DOE’s
