ARLINGTON, Va. — The Air Conditioning Contractors of America Educational Institute (ACCA-EI) Standards Task Team (STT) has announced an American National Standards Institute (ANSI) public review period for “BSR/ACCA 3 Manual S - 201x, Residential Equipment Selection” as a revised and redesignated industry standard. The public review period has a comment deadline of June 24, 2013.

The revised standard provides procedures for selecting and sizing residential heating and cooling equipment. The standard has been divided into two parts — a 'normative' portion that details the selection/sizing criteria and an 'informative' portion that provides discussion, guidance, and example problems related to procedure intent and use.

A review version of the proposed Second Edition of Manual S, and the public review response form, can be downloaded at www.acca.org/industry/ansi-standards/under-review.
