Stricter Energy Conservation Standards Proposed for Residential Dehumidifiers
The Department of Energy is proposing more stringent energy conservation standards for different categories of residential dehumidifiers. The department has tentatively concluded that the proposed standards represent the maximum improvement in energy efficiency that is technologically feasible and economically justified and would save a significant amount of energy. If adopted, these standards would apply to all covered products manufactured in or imported into the U.S. on or after the date that is three years after the publication of a final rule.
Comments on this proposal are due no later than Aug. 3. The DOE will hold a public meeting July 7, which will also be broadcast as a webinar, to receive comment on the proposed standards and associated analyses and results.
