UNI has recently published the standard UNI 10963 "Air-conditioners, water refrigerators and heat pumps. Determination of reduced power performance". This Italian standard is the first and so far the only standard on air-conditioning systems in the world to offer a solution to measure equipment efficiency not only in full power conditions - according to the regulations which were enforced a long time ago - but also with reduced heat loads. This makes it possible for building and installation designers to have the necessary data to assess energy consumption throughout the year.
