For SI:
1 British thermal unit per hour = 0.2931 W.

a
Chapter 6 of the referenced standard contains a complete specification of the referenced test procedure, including the referenced year version of the test procedure.

b
Minimum and maximum ratings as provided for and allowed by the unit's controls.

c
Combination units not covered by the National Appliance Energy Conservation Act of 1987 (NAECA) (3-phase power or cooling capacity greater than or equal to 65,000 Btu/h [19 kW]) shall comply with either rating.

 
d Et
= Thermal efficiency. See test procedure for detailed discussion.

 
e Ec
= Combustion efficiency (100% less flue losses). See test procedure for detailed discussion.

 
f Ec
= Combustion efficiency. Units must also include an IID, have jackets not exceeding 0.75 percent of the input rating, and have either power venting or a flue damper. A vent damper is an acceptable alternative to a flue damper for those furnaces where combustion air is drawn from the conditioned space.

 
g Et
= Thermal efficiency. Units must also include an IID, have jacket losses not exceeding 0.75 percent of the input rating, and have either power venting or a flue damper. A vent damper is an acceptable alternative to a flue damper for those furnaces where combustion air is drawn from the conditioned space.
