ARLINGTON, Va. — The ACCA Educational Institute (ACCA-EI) Standards Task Team (STT) has announced a third 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 April 7, 2014.

This revised standard provides procedures for selecting and sizing residential heating and cooling equipment. The standard is in 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
