Do variable speed pumps with inverter technology qualify for PTCS certification?
Yes. Please refer to the Variable Speed Heat Pumps fact sheet for more information.
Why is there a Commissioning and Controls measure for heat pumps?
This measure exists for those installations that do not meet the minimum 9.0 HSPF/14 SEER requirements for the PTCS heat pumps measure. The Commissioning and Controls reimbursement may be used on any heat pump that meets federal minimum standards, but is included in—and may not be claimed in addition to—PTCS heat pump measures. This measure is labeled "PTCS certified-only" in the PTCS database.
