The federal government has issued minimum efficiency standards for air-conditioning units, effectively eliminating the lowest-performing 20% of the units on the market.  For others, a labeling system with a grade 1-5 ranking is linked with financial incentives and improves consumer information to drive the market for more efficient units.
