Footnotes

1.  The Commission last amended Appendix D4 (comparability ranges for instantaneous gas water heaters) on August 29, 2007 (72 FR 49948). The correct capacity descriptor for instantaneous water heaters is maximum flow rate measured in gallons per minute, not ``first hour rating'' as the current Rule indicates.
