Energy Efficiency Cards for Air Conditioners


Energy Efficiency Cards for Refrigerators




These Energy Efficiency Cards are designed to educate the customers and give them a reliable way to compare the electrical appliances according to their electricity consuming efficiency before purchasing to help customers to choose the device that performs better while consuming less energy. The efficiency of electricity consumption is represented by the number of stars so that the greater the number of stars shown on the card the better efficiency of the device in terms of low electrical energy consumption.
The energy efficiency card is installed on the home appliance in a clear way that enables the customer to see its contents easily.
Saudi Energy Efficiency Center in cooperation with Saudi Standards, Metrology and Quality Organization and the relevant authorities prepared the energy efficiency card for electrical appliances that are the most widely used:
1. Air conditioners
2. Refrigerators and Freezers
3. Washing machines
The importance of energy efficiency card
• Enable the average consumer to prioritize devices according to their efficiency in consuming electricity.
• Rationalize the consumption of electric power, which reduces the amount of domestic consumption of fuel and increases the quantities exported abroad and raise the rate of national income.
• The rationalization of electricity consumption reduces the load of electricity and reduces the number of blackouts due to the increasing loads in summer.
• Create a spirit of competition between local manufacturers and suppliers to supply the local market with high-efficiency equipment.
Energy efficiency card for Split Air Conditioner:
• Air conditioners are the most energy consuming household appliances, so the energy efficiency card is issued showing the average consumption of the air conditioner.
• The air conditioners have two cards:
a. The old one contains (6 stars) which is the minimum efficiency indicator.
b. The new one contains (10 stars) with a minimum efficiency indicator of (7 stars)
• We can use an easy and practical way to know the energy efficiency of the device by reading the coefficient of energy efficiency EER of the card that must be at least (11.5).
Energy efficiency card for Window Air Conditioner:
• The energy efficiency card of window air conditioners aims to increase the customer awareness of the rate of energy consumption of the device.
• There are 2 limits of energy efficiency for window air conditioners:
• The minimum energy efficiency is (3 stars) for Window air conditioners producing more than 24,000 thermal units.
• The minimum energy efficiency is (5 stars) for Window air conditioners producing less than 24,000 thermal units.
• We can also easily know the consumption by reading the energy efficiency coefficient of the card EER that must be 8.5 and above for Window air conditioners producing more than 24,000 thermal units, and 9.7 for Window air conditioners producing less than 24,000 thermal units.
Energy efficiency card for refrigerators and freezers
• Aims to increase consumer awareness of energy efficiency.
• The higher the number of stars, the more efficient the power consumption of the device.
• The minimum energy efficiency coefficient for refrigerators and freezers is equivalent to one star.
Energy efficiency card for washing machines
• Aims to increase consumer awareness of energy efficiency.
• The higher the number of stars, the more efficient the power consumption of the device.
• The minimum energy efficiency coefficient for household electrical washing machines is equivalent to 4 stars.
