Input Sought on Revised Energy Test Procedures for Refrigeration Products
24 December 2019
The U.S. Department of Energy will hold a public meeting on 9 January and will accept input from interested parties by 21 February on a proposal to amend the energy test procedures for consumer refrigerators, refrigerator-freezers, freezers and miscellaneous refrigeration products to define the term “compartment” and revise the method for including the energy use of automatic icemakers and certain other energy-using functions.
Additionally, the DOE is proposing to adjust the standards for these products to ensure that the proposed change in test methodology does not require manufacturers to increase the efficiency of already compliant products or allow previously non-compliant products to meet the current energy conservation standard.
