Energy Efficiency Criteria and Labeling Method for Energy Label Qualified for Air Cleaners
I. The applicable scope, energy efficiency test conditions and methods and energy efficiency standards for certification of the energy conservation label for air cleaners should comply with the following regulations:
(I) The applicable scope should comply with one of the following regulations:
1. Air cleaners that comply with the National Standards of the Republic of China (CNS): CNS 16098 or those for household and similar use specified in the methods for measuring performance.
2. Air cleaners recognized by relevant competent authorities.
(II) Energy efficiency test conditions and methods:
1. The energy efficiency test conditions and methods for air cleaners must comply with the requirements of CNS 16098.
2. During a test, the primary and secondary functions of air cleaners must be enabled. Other primary functions can be disabled if they have independent switches.
The aforementioned primary functions include air cleaning functions, such as filtering with a filter, electrostatic dust collection and negative ions, that can help to reduce the concentration of indoor particulate matter, as well as ambient air quality monitoring and automatic air guiding device that can be used to control and support air cleaning functions. Secondary functions include time display, infrared remote control, Bluetooth or WiFi and differential pressure switch that provide users with different operating modes or protective functions. Other primary functions refer to those unrelated to the above primary and secondary functions.
3. The state of an air cleaner under test must be the same as that when it leaves the factory. A test type of air cleaner whose structure is changed or filter materials are replaced must not be sent for testing.
4. The measurement of an air cleaner’s standby power should include all additional functions.
(III) Energy efficiency standards:
1. The marked and actual measured values of an air cleaner’s energy efficiency should be greater than the baseline value shown in the following table:
|Unit|| Baseline value |
| Energy efficiency (CASR/W, Dust)|| cmm/W|| 0.106|
Note: The actual measured CASR/W value should be more than 95% of the marked value. Rounding off to the third decimal point is adopted for calculation of the actual measured value.
2. The marked and actual measured values of an air cleaner’s standby power should be less than the baseline value shown in the following table:
| Unit || Baseline value|
|Standby power|| Without networking function||W||1.00|
| With networking function ||W||2.00|
Note: The actual measured standby power value should be less than the marked value. Rounding off to the second decimal point is adopted for calculation of the actual measured value.
II. The energy efficiency rating labeling and standby power marks for air cleaners shall comply with the following:
(I) The name and address of the user must be clearly marked on the product or package.
(II) If the user is an agent, the name and address of the manufacturer must be clearly marked on the product or package as well.
