This dataset has the following 31 columns:

Column NameAPI Column NameData TypeDescriptionSample Values
ENERGY STAR Unique IDpd_idnumberThe ENERGY STAR Unique ID (ESUID) is a string of seven numbers EPA assigns to an ENERGY STAR model or set of models with unique performance characteristics. This ESUID is unique to both the model and product specification version and is assigned by EPA upon receipt of certification information from the certification body. Each row within the product list will have a unique ESUID. Developers may wish to use this ESUID to track information on certified models in their information systems.
Brand Namebrand_nametextAn identifier assigned by the manufacturer or private labeler to a product or family/series of products for sales and marketing purposes.
Model Namemodel_nametextAn identifier assigned by the manufacturer or private labeler to a product or family/series of products for sales and marketing purposes.
Model Numbermodel_numbertextA distinguishing identifier, usually alphanumeric, assigned to a product by the manufacturer or private labeler.
Additional Model Informationadditional_model_informationtextThis column includes for the qualified model or family, family members, additional model names, model numbers and other identifying information associated with a product or family/series of products for sales and marketing purposes. Other identifying information includes, but is not limited to, SKUs, UPC codes, retail numbers, and/or descriptions of models included/not included in the reported Model Family.
UPCupctextA Universal Product Code (UPC) is a specific type of barcode for tracking items sold in stores.
TypetypetextThis field is used to indicate the fuel type used to heat the air necessary to dry the clothes, either electric or gas.
Heat Pump Technologyheat_pump_technologytextHighly energy efficient heat pump technology typically heats, dehumidifies and circulates air in the dryer drum, so no vent is required. A Heat Pump model solely uses heat pump technology to dry clothes, while a Hybrid Heat Pump model uses a combination of heat pump technology and traditional electric resistance heating technology.
Voltage (V)voltagenumber
Drum Capacity (cu-ft)drum_capacity_cu_ftnumberThis is the drum capacity of the clothes dryers in cubic feet as measured by the U.S. Department of Energy test procedure, Code of Federal Regulations, Title 10, Section 430, Subpart B, Appendix D2. Products with a drum capacity less than 4.4 cubic feet are considered compact.
Height (inches)height_inchesnumberThe height of the clothes dryer.
Width (inches)width_inchesnumberThe width of the clothes dryer.
Depth (inches)depth_inchesnumberThe depth of the clothes dryer.
Combined Energy Factor (CEF)combined_energy_factor_cefnumberCEF is the energy performance metric for ENERGY STAR clothes dryers; the higher the CEF the more efficient the clothes dryer. The metric has units lbs/kWh and is calculated by dividing the weight of the test load by the sum of the per cycle standby and off mode energy consumption and either the total per-cycle electricity dryer energy consumption or the total per-cycle gas dryer energy consumption expressed in kilowatt hours (kWh).
Estimated Annual Energy Use (kWh/yr)estimated_annual_energy_use_kwh_yrnumberThe estimated annual energy use is based on the Combined Energy Factor and an annual usage of 283 cycles per year, as referenced by the U.S. Department of Energy test procedure, Code of Federal Regulations, Title 10, Section 430, Subpart B, Appendix D2. Actual energy consumption will vary on your usage patterns, including how often your run the dryer, what cycle you select, and load size. NOTE: For gas dryers the estimated annual energy use is expressed in kilowatt hours to allow for comparison, and represents the equivalent multi-source energy use of the product (e.g., natural gas or propane typically expressed in British thermal units (Btu)).
Estimated Energy Test Cycle Time (min)estimated_energy_test_cycle_time_minnumberThe estimated energy test cycle time is the time taken to complete the test cycle necessary for ENERGY STAR certification. Products must complete the energy test cycle in less than 80 minutes in order to be certified as ENERGY STAR. The estimated test cycle time does not reflect actual consumer cycle times which vary as a result of load size, dampness, and composition.
Energy Test Cycle Informationenergy_test_cycle_informationtextThe cycle selection and settings (temperature and dryness where separately selectable) as defined in the U.S. Department of Energy test procedure, Code of Federal Regulations, Title 10, Section 430, Subpart B, Appendix D2, Section 3.3, used for certification to ENERGY STAR.
Additional Dryer Featuresadditional_dryer_featurestextFeatures applicable to the clothes dryer may include drum light, wrinkle prevention option, steam cycle, sanitization cycle, filter cleaning indicator, energy monitor/indicator, time remaining display, and supplementary drying system.
Vented or Ventlessvented_or_ventlesstextVenting Configuration refers to how the clothes dryer exhausts heated air. Vented clothes dryers exhaust the evaporated moisture from the clothes dryer cabinet using a vent which typically leads to a building’s exterior. Ventless clothes dryers use a closed loop system with an internal condenser to remove the evaporated moisture from the heated air. Moisture is discharged from the cabinet and instead collected in a reservoir or drained through a tube.
ConnectedconnectedtextIndicates whether the model offers advanced controls and increased functionality such as sending notifications when the dryer is done or allowing for a service center to remotely diagnose problems. Clothes dryers with connected functionality are smart grid ready; if linked with your energy provider or an energy management system these products can dynamically adjust their energy use, potentially lowering your electric bill.
Connects Usingconnected_demand_response_functionality_testedtextProvides guidance about what you need in your home to enable connected capabilities like smart phone control, e.g. ‘WiFi’ or Zigbee.
Communication Standard - Application Layercommunication_standard_application_layertextOpen Standard - Application Layer include SEP 1.x, SEP2.x, OpenADR, etc.
Direct on-premises Open-standard Based Interconnectiondirect_on_premises_open_standard_based_interconnectiontextConnected appliances may or may not enable open-standards connectivity in the home. Consider the following illustrative examples: "Yes" An appliance that can directly communicate using Wi-Fi and OpenADR, or wired Ethernet and SEP 2.x; "No" An appliance that uses proprietary communications to/from the cloud, and is capable of supporting open-standards communications only in the cloud.
Calculated Combined Energy Factor - Max Dryness Setting (lbs/kWh)calculated_combined_energy_factor_max_dryness_setting_lbs_kwhnumberThe Calculated CEF – Max Dry is a measure of the dryer’s energy performance in a more energy consumptive setting, namely the normal cycle with the highest dryness setting as defined in the ENERGY STAR Most Efficient 2017 criteria. The Calculated CEF – Max Dry should not be directly compared to the CEF field, which is tested using the medium dryness setting, and represents a rated rather than measured value. The CEF metric has units lbs/kWh and is calculated by dividing the weight of the test load by the sum of the per cycle standby and off mode energy consumption and either the total per-cycle electricity dryer energy consumption or the total per-cycle gas dryer energy consumption expressed in kilowatt hours (kWh).
Paired ENERGY STAR Clothes Washer Availablepaired_energy_star_clothes_washer_availabletextIndicates if the clothes dryer is being marketed as a matched pair with an ENERGY STAR Clothes Washer.
Paired ENERGY STAR Clothes Washer ENERGY STAR Model Identifierpaired_energy_star_clothes_washer_energy_star_model_identifiertextPaired clothes washer ENERGY STAR Model Identifier .
Date Available on Marketdate_available_on_marketcalendar_dateThe date that the model is available for purchase.
Date Certifieddate_qualifiedcalendar_dateThe date on which the product was confirmed to meet the ENERGY STAR specification.
MarketsmarketstextIncludes products sold in the U.S. and/or Canada and other ENERGY STAR partner countries.
CB Model Identifierenergy_star_model_identifiertextA unique string of characters assigned by certification bodies (CBs) to identify a model or set of models with the same performance characteristics. This identifier should remain the same for a model even if it is recertified to a new version of an ENERGY STAR specification. This string of characters is determined by CBs and is not the ENERGY STAR Unique ID assigned by EPA.
