SASO 2874/2016: Large capacity air conditioners - performance requirement and methods of testing

Last updated: 22 July 2020

Air conditioner with capacities exceeding 65,000 Btu/h are covered in the Large AC standard (SASO 2874/2016)

 

Air conditioners, air cooled

  • CC = 65,000: EER 11.2  
  • 65,000 < CC = 135,000: EER 11.2
  • 135,000 < CC = 240,000: EER 11
  • 24,0000 < CC = 760,000: EER 10.0
  • 760,000 < CC : EER 9.7

 

Air conditioners, water cooled

  • CC = 65,000: EER 12.1
  • 65,000 < CC = 135,000: EER 12.1
  • 135,000 < CC = 240,000: EER 12.5
  • 24,0000 < CC = 760,000: EER 12.4
  • 760,000 < CC : EER 12.2

 

Air conditioners, evaporatively cooled

  • CC = 65,000: EER 12.1
  • 65,000 < CC = 135,000: EER 12.1

Variable refrigerant flow (VRF) multi split air conditioners, water-cooled:

  • CC = 65,000: EER 12.0
  • 65,000 < CC = 135,000: EER 12.0
  • 135,000 < CC = 240,000: EER 10.0
  • 24,0000 < CC: EER 10.0

 

Cooling Capacity (Btu/h), EER (BTU/W/h)

 

The regulation also sets MEPS for Computer and Data processing room air conditioners.
