Anyone know of a reliable database for finding appliance data?  How about scaling these appliances and their energy consumption based on age/condition?

Looking for both.  Thanks for the help!

while somewhat dated, WAPTAC has some good resources

AHAM has more recent data

Thanks Paul.  Do you know if there is a standard for adjusting the kWh/y consumption of a refrigerator based on it's condition and/or age?
don't think there is any kind of standard, especially given that even the usage of new units can vary quite a bit from rated kwh. Nothing like a metered test!
Are you referring to using a kill-o-watt?
yes - any kwh meter will do. get a few days worth of data for best accuracy.
