Certified FEG ratings support compliance, enforcement

Many code jurisdictions are concerned about the growth and complexity of energy codes and standards, which makes compliance and enforcement difficult.

Figure 3. This sticker can be applied to fans bearing AMCA-certified ratings for fan efficiency grade, and it can also appear in literature and software programs in accordance with AMCA 211-2005 (rev 1-13) Certified Ratings Program - Product Rating ManualMany code jurisdictions are concerned about the growth and complexity of energy codes and standards, making compliance checking and enforcement time-consuming and difficult. Consequently, more codes and standards are being written to require certified efficiency ratings and supporting labels, stickers, or other marks that facilitate online verification and visual inspection.

AMCA’s Certified Ratings Program began certifying fan efficiency grades in 2010, after the AMCA 205 standard was published. Currently, more than 40 companies and more than 250 fan models have certified FEG ratings. AMCA also certifies manufacturers’ sizing and selection software to produce FEG ratings and fan-total-pressure data. Literature and software outputs that have certified FEG ratings are licensed to bear the AMCA FEG label (Figure 3). AMCA’s online database of certified ratings can be searched by manufacturer and type of product at www.amca.org. For a shortcut on finding certified FEGs, visit www.amca.org/feg.
