SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

This document corrects tables and sample labels for central air conditioners in the August 12, 2014, final rule document (79 FR 46985) amending the Energy Labeling Rule (“Rule”), 16 CFR part 305. Specifically, this document corrects the lower range numbers for several central air conditioner categories to reflect new DOE minimum conservation standards scheduled for January 1, 2015, adds range numbers for space-constrained and small-duct, high-velocity product categories omitted from the tables in the final rule document,[1] and makes conforming corrections to the range numbers on the sample labels.
