How should Certification Bodies (CBs) check whether products meet the room air conditioner (RAC) side curtain installation criteria? Follow

ENERGY STAR partners with window units should ensure the R-value of the side curtains they use is determined by the appropriate ASTM test specified by the Federal Trade Commission’s (FTC’s) Labeling and Advertising of Home Insulation regulations at 16 CFR part 460.  As with the other RAC installation requirements, such as the requirement for partners to provide weather stripping, gasket materials and covers shipped with the model, to validate compliance, the CB should examine relevant product markings and/or review documentation (e.g., in the installation instructions) from the partner.
