Commercial refrigerators, refrigerator-freezers and freezers energy efficiency.

Overview

Commercial refrigerator-freezer,a refrigerator-freezer that is self-contained or remote-condensing, that uses or is designed to be used with a vapor-compression refrigeration system and that has two or more compartments, at least one of which is designed for the display or storage of food and beverages at temperatures at or above 0°C and at least one of which is designed for the freezing and display or storage of food and beverages at temperatures below 0°C. It does not include a household refrigerator-freezer, walk-in freezer or walk-in cooler.

Commercial freezer, a freezer that is self-contained or remote-condensing, that uses or is designed to be used with a vapour-compression refrigeration system and whose compartments are all designed for the freezing and display or storage of food, beverages or ice at temperatures below 0°C. It does not include a household freezer or walk-in freezer.

NRCan Regulation

Chiller freezers energy efficiency.

Overview

Chiller, a machine, with or without an integral refrigerant condenser, that is designed to use a refrigerant cycle to remove heat from a liquid and to reject the heat to a cooling medium.

For the purposes of the verification mark, provision of information and the energy efficiency standard, a chiller is not considered to be an energy-using product unless it has an integral refrigerant condenser and is manufactured on or after October 28, 2004. Information pertaining to imports is still required.

Energy performance standard for chillers manufactured on or after December 31, 2019 as per ANSI/ASHRAE/IES Standard 90.1-2016, Table 6.8.1-3 (SI version presented here, I-P version also accepted)

CARB – The Refrigerant Management Program (RMP) requires facilities with refrigeration systems containing more than 50 pounds of high-GWP refrigerant to conduct and report periodic leak inspections, promptly repair leaks; and keep service records on site. The regulation also requires service practices intended to minimize refrigerant emissions. Read More>
