DOE Standards and Testing: Why It Matters

At MWSS, Inc. we are dedicated to providing only the best RV appliances, parts, and electronics to our customers and dealers. That’s one big reason we partner with GE Appliances. They care about offering tried and true high-quality products. One GE RV appliance we offer comes to mind when we think of products that rise above the rest: GE’s 12V refrigerators. Not only are they great products for your RV, but they are proven to be among the best in quality and energy-efficiency in the industry.

DOE Standards Pull-Down Test

The Department of Energy (DOE) has a host of standards and regulations for certain appliances and equipment to ensure energy-efficiency. Standards apply to a huge assortment of household and commercial appliances, including refrigerators and freezers. 

One of the tests for refrigerators is known as the pull-down test, which measures the time it takes to cool the temperature of an item placed in the refrigerator. Generally, it should take around 30 minutes for most products, and meeting this standard displays the quality of the refrigerator. 

This test and others for refrigerators and other appliances are important assessments of the quality and functionality of the product. 

These standards not only apply to the appliances in your home, but they also apply to the appliances in your RV. While on the road, you want all of your RV appliances to be best-in-class as well.

GE 12V RV Refrigerator

The GE 12V refrigerators are truly unique RV refrigerators. They meet DOE standards and testing where others do not. Other RV refrigerators do not often meet the pull-down test, meaning they are far from energy-efficient and the highest quality. 

GE 12V refrigerators are designed especially for RVs and are thoroughly tested to deliver reliable performance.

At MWSS, we want the best for you and your RV. That starts with high-quality products and continues through great service. We encourage you to check out our store to see the GE Appliances and other great products we are offering for our RV dealers and owners. To inquire about the GE 12V refrigerators contact us today to get one in your hands as soon as possible.
