Marginal note:Labelling — total annual energy consumption

 In respect of a dishwasher that is manufactured on or after January 1, 2010, a reference to “annual energy consumption” in Schedule 1 is to be read as a reference to “total annual energy consumption”.

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

  • Marginal note:Limit

    (2) However, for the purposes of sections 4, 5, 13 to 15 and 37, a dishwasher is not considered to be an energy-using product unless it is manufactured on or after February 3, 1995.

Marginal note:Energy efficiency standards
  •  (1) The energy efficiency standards set out in column 3 of the table to this section apply to dishwashers described in column 1 that are manufactured during the periods set out in column 4.

  • Marginal note:Testing standard

    (2) A dishwasher complies with the energy efficiency standard if it meets that standard when tested in accordance with testing procedures established by the standard set out in column 2 that are applicable to a dishwasher as defined in section 32.

SUBDIVISION ERefrigerators and Combination Refrigerator-Freezers

Marginal note:Definitions

 The following definitions apply in this Subdivision.

combination refrigerator-freezer

combination refrigerator-freezer means a household combination refrigerator-freezer that has

  • (a) a defrost system, including a compressor-cycled automatic defrost system; and

  • (b) a capacity of 1 100 L (39 cubic feet) or less. (réfrigérateur-congélateur)

compressor-cycled automatic defrost system

compressor-cycled automatic defrost system means a defrost system in which the defrosting action for the refrigerated spaces occurs using the natural warming of the evaporator and that is automatically initiated when the compressor is cycled on and automatically terminated when the compressor is cycled off. (dispositif de dégivrage automatique à cycle du compresseur)

refrigerator

refrigerator means a household refrigerator that has a capacity of 1 100 L (39 cubic feet) or less and that has a defrost system, including a compressor-cycled automatic defrost system. It includes a wine chiller but does not include a household refrigerator that uses an absorption refrigeration system. (réfrigérateur)

Type 5A combination refrigerator-freezer

Type 5A combination refrigerator-freezer means a combination refrigerator-freezer that is manufactured on or after December 31, 2005, is capable of dispensing ice through the cabinet door and is equipped with a bottom-mounted freezer and an automatic defrost system. (réfrigérateur-congélateur de type 5A)
