FurnacesHigh Efficiency Furnace Requirement Dropped for Seattle / Tacoma

In a settlement filed late Friday afternoon, the Department of Energy (DOE) has agreed to withdraw the pending minimum energy conservation standards that include regional standards for residential gas furnaces.

Pending the Court’s acceptance of this settlement, non-condensing furnaces remain legal to install in all states (including the Seattle / Tacoma) until further notice.¬† This is good news for consumers because they will still be able to purchase and install 80% efficient furnaces which require less up front cost than higher efficiency models.

According to the terms of the settlement, portions of the June 27, 2011 Direct Final Rule setting the minimum AFUE standards for residential non-weatherized and mobile home gas furnaces at 90% in the Northern region and 80% in the Southeastern and Southwestern regions is vacated, along with the pending May 1, 2013 compliance date.
