Small packaged DX units do not need to be fitted out with a leak detection system or a refrigerant recovery system as per the Credit Criteria for this credit if the total sum of refrigerants for these units is not more than 5% of the total refrigerant volume of the project. Where the exclusion is being claimed, a tabulated summary demonstrating that 100% of all refrigerants in the project have been accounted for must be provided at the time of submission.
