HERS RATED SPACE CONDITIONING SYSTEM EQUIPMENT VERIFICATION may be part of a newly constructed home or addition when triggered by a performance approach CF1R .
SEER & EER Verification When a performance approach CF1R calls for "Rated Equipment" be sure to note the minimum EER and minimum SEER called for. You may install more efficient (higher SEER & EER) equipment than is called for but to pass this verification the system must be equal to or greater than stated on the CF1R. The installing HVAC contractor must prove (to the state) that the FAU (forced air unit), condenser, and evap. coil combination is in compliance. Most supply houses will gladly provide an AHRI certificate matching the equipment model numbers showing SEER & EER when ordering the equipment. Getting this right when ordering equipment will prevent major headaches down the road.
