Solutions for Today's Environment
As part of our promise to create a better world, discover how Hussmann’s customer-focused solutions stay ahead in an ever-changing world of energy regulations and requirements.
Partnering to meet regulatory requirements
We continuously take steps to ensure compliance with all Department of Energy (DOE) and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) standards and rules. Every six years the DOE reviews the conservation standards which impact Hussmann products.
Currently, display cases are manufactured to be compliant with the March 2017 DOE compliance date. Walk-in cooler/freezer components (WICF) have compliance dates of June 2017 for doors and 2020 for refrigeration. Hussmann and CRD WICF doors manufactured today are compliant with the most recent federal standards (June 2017).
New store installations with refrigerated systems for California beginning 1/1/2022 must not exceed 50 lbs of charge and use a refrigerant below 2,200 GWP. Systems greater than 50 lbs charge require refrigerants below 150 GWP. Existing store compliance for CA requires a reduced weighted average GWP of refrigerants used to less than 1,400 GWP for the fleet by 2030 or a 55% reduction of overall GHGP (charge not relevant).
