(a) Sampling plan for selection of units for testing.
(1) The requirements of § 429.11 are applicable to commercial refrigerators, freezers, and refrigerator-freezers; and
(2) For each basic model of commercial refrigerator, freezer, or refrigerator-freezer selected for testing, a sample of sufficient size shall be randomly selected and tested to ensure that—
(i) Any value of estimated maximum daily energy consumption or other measure of energy consumption of a basic model for which consumers would favor lower values shall be greater than or equal to the higher of:
(A) The mean of the sample, where:
Or,
(B) The upper 95 percent confidence limit (UCL) of the true mean divided by 1.10, where:
and
(ii) Any represented value of the energy efficiency or other measure of energy consumption of a basic model for which consumers would favor higher values shall be less than or equal to the lower of:
(A) The mean of the sample, where:
Or,
(B) The lower 95 percent confidence limit (LCL) of the true mean divided by 0.90, where:
(b) Certification reports.
(1) The requirements of § 429.12 are applicable to commercial refrigerators, freezers, and refrigerator-freezers; and
(2) Pursuant to § 429.12(b)(13), a certification report shall include the following public product-specific information:
(i) Self-contained commercial refrigerators with solid doors, commercial refrigerators with transparent doors, commercial freezers with solid doors, and commercial freezers with transparent doors: the maximum daily energy consumption in kilowatt hours per day (kWh/day) and the chilled or frozen compartment volume in cubic feet (ft3).
(ii) Self-contained commercial refrigerator-freezers with solids doors: the maximum average daily energy consumption in kilowatt hours per day (kWh/day) and the adjusted volume in cubic feet (ft3).
(iii) Remote condensing commercial refrigerators, freezers, and refrigerator-freezers, self-contained commercial refrigerators, freezers, and refrigerator-freezers without doors, commercial ice-cream freezers, and commercial refrigeration equipment with two or more compartments (i.e., hybrid refrigerators, hybrid freezers, hybrid refrigerator-freezers, and non-hybrid refrigerator-freezers): The maximum daily energy consumption in kilowatt hours per day (kWh/day), the total display area (TDA) in feet squared (ft2) or the chilled volume in cubic feet (ft3) as necessary to demonstrate compliance with the standards set forth in § 431.66, the rating temperature in degrees Fahrenheit (°F), the operating temperature range in degrees Fahrenheit (e.g., ≥32 °F, <32 °F, and ≤−5 °F), the equipment family designation as described in § 431.66, and the condensing unit configuration.
