Abstract

As refrigerator-freezers are one of the major energy consuming appliances in the household environment, a great deal of attention has been paid to improve their efficiency throughout the world. In order to reduce their energy consumption, cost effective policy and strategies, such as energy efficiency standards and labels are in place for a number of countries and several other countries are in the processes of establishing these strategies. To attain standards and labels, an appliance grading or rating system must be established to demonstrate the products performance in the most comprehensive way. The grading or rating system provides a clear idea to consumers about the products’ energy performance. This paper mainly focuses on different ways of grading or rating household refrigerator-freezers using current data in Malaysia.
