Mini-Split and Ductless Heat Pump

Accepting existing 2022 efficiency requirements and new 2023 efficiency requirements until 12/31/23:

HVAC System Type Existing 2022 Efficiency Requirements NEW 2023 Efficiency Requirements
ASHP or Ducted Mini-Splits Tier 1 – Split System ≥ 16 SEER and ≥ 12.5 EER and ≥ 9.0 HSPF ≥ 15.2 SEER2 and ≥ 11.7 EER2 and ≥ 7.8 HSPF2
ASHP or Ducted Mini-Splits Tier 1 – Single Package ≥ 16 SEER and ≥ 12.5 EER and ≥ 9.0 HSPF ≥ 15.2 SEER2 and ≥ 10.6 EER2 and ≥ 7.2 HSPF2
ASHP or Ducted Mini-Splits Tier 2 – Split Package ≥ 18 SEER and ≥ 12.5 EER and ≥ 9.5 HSPF ≥ 16.9 SEER2 and ≥ 12.0 EER2 and ≥ 8.2 HSPF2
ASHP or Ducted Mini-Splits Tier 2 – Single Package ≥ 18 SEER and ≥ 12.5 EER and ≥ 9.5 HSPF ≥ 16.9 SEER2 and ≥ 12.0 EER2 and ≥ 8.2 HSPF2
Ductless HP Single-Zone Unit ≥ 18 SEER and ≥ 12.5 EER and ≥ 9.0 HSPF ≥ 18 SEER2 and ≥ 12.5 EER2 and ≥ 8.1 HSPF2
Ductless HP Multi-Zone Unit ≥ 15.5 SEER and ≥ 12.5 EER and ≥ 8.6 HSPF ≥ 15.5 SEER2 and ≥ 12.5 EER2 and ≥ 7.8 HSPF2

SEER = Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating: A rating that denotes the efficiency of air conditioning equipment. The higher the SEER, the more efficient the unit and the lower the operating cost.

EER = Energy Efficiency Rating: The ratio of an air conditioning unit’s cooling capacity in British thermal units (Btus) per hour to the total electrical input in watts.

HSPF = Heating Seasonal Performance Factor: The total heating output of a heat pump in Btus during its normal usage period for heating, as divided by the total electrical energy input in watt-hours during the same period.

Heat Pump & Smart Thermostat

No changes to timing and eligibility requirements:

HVAC System Type Existing 2022 Efficiency Requirements NEW 2023 Efficiency Requirements
Geothermal Heat Pump (closed loop) ≥ 17.1 EER & ≥ 3.6 COP No Changes
Smart Thermostat* ENERGY STAR® Certified Smart Thermostat No Changes

*Limit 3 per household.

EER = Energy Efficiency Rating: The ratio of an air conditioning unit’s cooling capacity in British thermal units (Btus) per hour to the total electrical input in watts.

COP = Coefficient of Performance: A ratio that measures the efficiency of a heat pump. The higher the number, the more efficient the heat pump.

Tier 1 & 2 Split Systems and Single Package

Equipment installed on or after 1/1/23 must meet the New Efficiency Requirements:

HVAC System Type Existing 2022 Efficiency Requirements NEW 2023 Efficiency Requirements
Central Air Conditioner Tier 1 – Split System ≥ 16 SEER and ≥ 12.5 EER ≥ 15.2 SEER2 and ≥ 12.0 EER2
Central Air Conditioner Tier 1 – Single Package ≥ 16 SEER and ≥ 12.5 EER ≥ 15.2 SEER2 and ≥ 11.5 EER2
Central Air Conditioner Tier 2 – Split System ≥ 18 SEER and ≥ 12.5 EER ≥ 16.9 SEER2 and ≥ 12.4 EER2
Central Air Conditioner Tier 2 – Single Package ≥ 18 SEER and ≥ 12.5 EER ≥ 16.9 SEER2 and ≥ 11.5 EER2

SEER = Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating: A rating that denotes the efficiency of air conditioning equipment. The higher the SEER, the more efficient the unit and the lower the operating cost.

EER = Energy Efficiency Rating: The ratio of an air conditioning unit’s cooling capacity in British thermal units (Btus) per hour to the total electrical input in watts.
