  • (b) if it is manufactured on or after January 1, 2008, a type described in any of the product types (8) to (10A) and (16) to (18) of Table 1 to CSA C300-12.

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

  • Marginal note:Limit

    (2) However, for the purposes of sections 4, 5, 13 to 15 and 49, a 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 freezers described in column 1 that are manufactured during the periods set out in column 4.

  • Marginal note:Testing standard

    (2) A 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 freezer as defined in section 45.

SUBDIVISION GElectric Ranges

Marginal note:Definitions

 The following definitions apply in this Subdivision.

conventional cooking top

conventional cooking top means a cooking top that is not a modular cooking top. (table de cuisson traditionnelle)

E

E means energy consumption, expressed in kilowatt hours per month. (E)

electric range

electric range means a household electric range. It does not include a portable range that is designed for an electrical supply of 120 V or a microwave oven. (cuisinière électrique)

modular cooking top

modular cooking top means a cartridge that consists of at least one surface element and that can be plugged into a receptacle on the surface of an electric range. (table de cuisson modulaire)

Marginal note:Size category

 For the purposes of these Regulations, the size category of an electric range that has at least one surface element and at least one oven is one of the following, based on the product’s exterior width:

  • (a) 60.96 cm (24 inches);

  • (b) 76.2 cm (30 inches);

  • (c) 91.44 cm (36 inches); or

  • (d) 121.92 cm (48 inches).

Marginal note:Type

 For the purposes of these Regulations, an electric range is one of the following types:

  • (a) if it has at least one oven, either self-cleaning or non-self-cleaning; and

  • (b) if it has no oven, all models.

Marginal note:Energy-using product
  •  (1) An electric range is prescribed as an energy-using product.

  • Marginal note:Limit

    (2) However, for the purposes of sections 4, 5, 13 to 15 and 55, an electric range 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 2 of the table to this section apply to electric ranges described in column 1 that are manufactured during the periods set out in column 3.

  • Marginal note:Testing standard

    (2) An electric range complies with the energy efficiency standard if it meets that standard when tested in accordance with testing procedures established by CSA C358-03 that are applicable to an electric range as defined in section 51.
