From the 1st of October 2001, three phase ducted and non ducted air conditioners of the vapour compression type with a cooling capacity of up to 65kW manufactured in or imported into Australia and New Zealand, had to comply with the Minimum Energy Performance Standard (MEPS) requirements. These requirements are set out in Australian and New Zealand Standard 3823.2-2001. Since then MEPS levels have progressively increased and from the 1st of October 2007, increased MEPS levels will come into force.
Today, developed countries like Australia are turning to MEPS to increase the number of energy efficient units in the marketplace.
All major Manufacturers including Carrier, Toshiba and Daikin Air Conditioning are committed to providing air conditioning solutions that are energy efficient, quiet, simple to use and reliable, ensuring units not only meet MEPS requirements but in most cases exceed the minimum requirements.
