Standard Test Method for Determining Energy Consumption of Vacuum Cleaners
|Publication Date:||1 June 2011|
This test method covers only a laboratory test for determining the energy usage-of household and commercial upright, canister, stick, and wet/dry vacuum cleaners operating on carpet when tested under specified conditions.
This procedure may be used in conjunction with other performance criteria, such as cleaning effectiveness.
Vacuum cleaners, other than upright vacuum cleaners, that provide a carpet-cleaning function are tested in accordance with the carpet-cleaning instructions provided in the manufacturer's instruction manual. If the manufacturer's instruction manual does not contain instructions for a carpet-cleaning function, the vacuum cleaner is not within the scope of this procedure.
This test method is applicable to household and commercial types of vacuum cleaners.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. The inch-pound units given in parentheses are mathematical conversions that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.
This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
