Commercial Refrigerator-Freezers

Marginal note:Energy-using product
  •  (1) A commercial refrigerator-freezer is prescribed as an energy-using product.

  • Marginal note:Limits

    (2) However, a commercial refrigerator-freezer is not considered to be an energy-using product

    • (a) for the purposes of sections 4 and 5, unless

      • (i) it is closed and is manufactured on or after April 1, 2007, or

      • (ii) it is open and is manufactured on or after January 1, 2012; and

    • (b) for the purpose of section 641, unless

      • (i) it is closed and not transparent and is manufactured on or after April 1, 2007, or

      • (ii) it is open or transparent and is manufactured on or after January 1, 2012.

Marginal note:Energy efficiency standards
  •  (1) The energy efficiency standards set out in column 2 of the table to this section apply to commercial refrigerator-freezers described in column 1 that are manufactured during the periods set out in column 3.

  • Marginal note:Testing standard

    (2) A commercial refrigerator-freezer complies with the energy efficiency standard if it meets that standard when tested in accordance with testing procedures established by CSA C657, Test Procedure A, that are applicable to a commercial refrigerator-freezer as defined in section 636.
