Energy Conservation Program for Consumer Products: Test Procedure for Water Heaters
AGENCY: Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, Energy.
ACTION: Final rule.
SUMMARY: The Department of Energy (DOE or the Department) is amending its test procedure for water heaters. The first-hour rating for storage-type water heaters is revised to more accurately measure large storage-type water heaters. Also, electric and gas-fired instantaneous water heaters are rated at the maximum flow rate to distinguish them from storage-type water heaters.
