U.S. DOE Finalized Ratings for Commercial Systems

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has finalized new methods for rating and certifying commercial air conditioning, heating, water heating, and refrigeration equipment. The rules were developed by the DOE’s Appliance Standards Rulemaking Federal Advisory Committee (ASRAC).
The new methods “promise significant energy savings. By accepting the consensus rule developed by the multi-stakeholder working group, DOE now has the tools to implement these important, energy-saving standards fairly and cost-effectively,” said Andrew deLanksi, executive director of the Appliance Standards Awareness Project.
The methods employ computer modeling or mathematical tools to forecast the rated energy performance of products.
