Marginal note:Type

 For the purposes of these Regulations, a refrigerator or combination refrigerator-freezer is one of the following types:

  • (a) if it was manufactured on or after February 3, 1995 and before January 1, 2008, a type described in any of the product types (1) to (7) and (11) to (15) of Table 1 to CSA C300-00 or a Type 5A combination refrigerator-freezer; or

  • (b) if it is manufactured on or after January 1, 2008, a type described in any of the product types (1) to (7), (11) to (15), (19) and (20) of Table 1 to CSA C300-12.

Marginal note:Energy-using products
  •  (1) Refrigerators and combination refrigerator-freezers are prescribed as energy-using products.

  • Marginal note:Limit

    (2) However, for the purposes of sections 4, 5, 13 to 15 and 43, a refrigerator or combination refrigerator-freezer 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 refrigerators and combination refrigerator-freezers described in column 1 that are manufactured during the periods set out in column 4.

  • Marginal note:Testing standard — refrigerators

    (2) A refrigerator 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 refrigerator as defined in section 39.

  • Marginal note:Testing standard — combination-refrigerator freezers

    (3) A combination refrigerator-freezer 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 combination-refrigerator freezer as defined in section 39.
