SUBDIVISION HGas Ranges

Marginal note:Definition of gas range

 In this Subdivision, gas range means a household propane or natural gas range that has an electrical power source, is used for food preparation and provides at least one of the following functions:

  • (a) surface cooking;

  • (b) oven cooking; and

  • (c) broiling.

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

  • Marginal note:Limit

    (2) However, for the purposes of sections 4, 5 and 59, a gas range is not considered to be an energy-using product unless it is manufactured on or after February 3, 1995.

Marginal note:Energy efficiency standard

 The energy efficiency standard that applies to a gas range is that it must not have a continuously burning pilot light.

Marginal note:Information

 For the purpose of subsection 5(1) of the Act, the following information must be collected in accordance with CSA C358-03 and provided to the Minister in respect of a gas range:

  • (a) the volume of usable oven space, expressed in litres;

  • (b) information that indicates whether the product is built-in or free-standing; and

  • (c) the broiler configuration, namely, open or closed.

SUBDIVISION IDehumidifiers

Marginal note:Definitions

 The following definitions apply in this Subdivision.

CSA C749-07

CSA C749-07 means the CSA standard CAN/CSA-C749-07 entitled Performance of Dehumidifiers. (CSA C749-07)

CSA C749-94

CSA C749-94 means the CSA standard CAN/CSA-C749-94 entitled Performance of Dehumidifiers. (CSA C749-94)

dehumidifier

dehumidifier means a factory-assembled electric device that removes moisture from the air, is mechanically refrigerated and has a water removal capacity of not more than 87.5 L/day (185 U.S. pints/day). (déshumidificateur)

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

  • Marginal note:Limit

    (2) However, for the purposes of sections 4, 5 and 63, a dehumidifier is not considered to be an energy-using product unless it is manufactured on or after December 31, 1998.

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

  • Marginal note:Testing standard

    (2) A dehumidifier 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 dehumidifier as defined in section 61.
