March 27 2015 - APGA Submitted Comments on the DOE proposed furnace rule

March 27, 2015 - APGA submitted comments (here) on the Department of Energy (DOE)'s proposed rule (NOPR) increasing natural gas furnace standards under Docket EERE-2014-BT-STD-0031. APGA Vice President Dave Schryver also testified on the issue in front of the Department of Energy (DOE)'s proposed rule (NOPR) increasing natural gas furnace standards. APGA, whose members are predominantly located in southern tier states, is concerned that the NOPR, by eliminating non-condensing furnaces from the marketplace, is, among other things, taking away customer choice, discriminating against low-income persons, and precipitating fuel switching to less efficient energy alternatives – all to the detriment of the American public

Focus Search - Suffice 5 it to say here that we believe the fuel switching analysis done by GTI and submitted to DOE prior to the issuance of the NOPR demonstrates that moving to a condensing furnace standard in the absence of treating non-condensing furnaces as a separate product class violates the EPCA mandate that new efficiency standards be economically justified
