Find out if your New Jersey home's HVAC system meets ENERGY STAR requirements. Note: When completing the ventilation and exhaust fan ratings, fans exempted from this requirement include HVAC air handlers and remote-mounted fans. To be considered for this exemption, a
remote-mounted fan must be mounted outside the habitable spaces, bathrooms, toilets, and hallways and there shall be ≥ 4 ft.
ductwork between the fan and intake grill. Per ASHRAE 62.2-2010, habitable spaces are intended for continual human occupancy;
such space generally includes areas used for living, sleeping, dining, and cooking but does not generally include bathrooms,
toilets, hallways, storage areas, closets, or utility rooms. You can easily modify this checklist to align with New Jersey state and local regulations.
