Biden Administration Unveils New Efficiency Standards For Home Furnaces

In an effort to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions that are causing climate change, the Department of Energy proposed new energy-efficiency standards Monday for residential gas furnaces. The rule, if finalized, would help limit the release of carbon dioxide and methane. The new standard would require new furnaces to convert 95% of the gas they burn into heat. The rule is proposed to take effect in 2029, and it would effectively require that only “condensing furnaces,” which capture excess heat from the furnace’s exhaust gases, are sold.
