The enforcement deadline for the Department of Energy’s (DOE) new Walk-In Coolers and Freezers (WICF) efficiency standards is quickly approaching, and beginning January 1, 2020, some equipment will be held to higher standards. Who is responsible for compliance? Do you need to replace existing systems? Which components are affected?
The new energy conservation standards for WICF refrigeration systems were issued on July 10, 2017. The new rules introduce efficiency standards commensurate with available technology. End-users will benefit from reduced energy bills and increased equipment efficiency.
Heatcraft has been paving the way, supporting our customer base to meet this regulatory deadline. Below, we have simplified the DOE’s new standards for WICFs to help you quickly assess your need for compliance and what role you play in the process.
