Walk-In Coolers and Walk-In Freezers

May 13th 2014

On May 13, 2014 the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) published a final rule regarding test procedures and alternative efficiency determination methods for walk-in coolers and walk-in freezers. DOE is revising its regulations related to the use of methods for certifying compliance and reporting ratings in accordance with energy conservation standards as they apply to walk-in coolers and walk-in freezers. These revisions also include a number of clarifications to the relevant test procedure that will serve as the basis for any applicable alternative efficiency determination method that may be used to rate certain walk-in cooler and walk-in freezer components.
