Five ENERGY STAR Room Air Conditioners Fail Testing

August 22, 2011 - 2:00pm


The U.S. Department of Energy's Office of Enforcement announced today that DOE testing has identified five Friedrich room air conditioners that do not meet the ENERGY STAR Program’s energy efficiency requirements.  DOE selected these models for testing as part of its ENERGY STAR Verification Testing Pilot Program.

DOE tests revealed that ENERGY STAR-rated Friedrich room air conditioner models YM18M34-A, US12C10, US10C30, CP15F10 and SS12M30 do not meet the ENERGY STAR requirements.  DOE's Office of Enforcement referred the five models to the Environmental Protection Agency, which serves as brand manager for the ENERGY STAR program, for appropriate action.
