Title: Test Procedure for Ceiling Fans 

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) is considering amendments to its test procedures for ceiling fans established under the Energy Policy and Conservation Act (EPCA), as amended. On September 30, 2019, DOE published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NOPR) proposing certain amendments to the existing ceiling fans test procedure. On December 7, 2021, DOE published a supplemental notice of proposed rulemaking to define the term "circulating air" for the purpose of the ceiling fan definition, to include ceiling fans greater than 24 feet in the scope, to include certain belt-driven ceiling fans within scope, to include a standby metric for large-diameter ceiling fans, to amend the low speed definition, to permit an alternate set-up to collect air velocity test data, to amend certain set-up and operation specifications, to amend blade thickness measurement requirements, and to update product-specific rounding and enforcement provisions.
