NSF To Test Refrigeration For Energy Star

NSF Int'l. has been given the green light from the California Energy Commission to conduct energy-efficiency testing and verify energy claims for commercial refrigerators and freezers in support of the Energy Star enhanced program.

NSF already provides sanitation testing and certification for refrigerators and freezers. With this approval, the organization can now provide manufacturers a "one-stop shop" for energy-efficiency testing and sanitation testing and certification.

Initially, NSF will focus on energy-efficiency testing services for the refrigeration industry. Eligible products will include reach-in, roll-in and pass-through units; merchandisers; undercounter units; milk coolers; back-bar coolers; bottle coolers; glass frosters; deep-well units; beer-dispensing or direct-draw units; and bunker freezers.
