You may be aware that there was a Federally mandated change to gas furnace replacement that was being implemented on May 1, 2013. This change would cause a great deal of expense for homeowners requiring a furnace replacement, as well as additional expense to HVAC manufacturers.
According to the press release below, this mandate has been put on hold at this time. Thanks to the Air Conditioning Contractors of America (ACCA), the Department of Energy (DOE) has agreed to withdraw the pending requirement on HVAC contractors to only install 90% or better energy efficient gas furnace models in our region.
We hope this information is helpful to you on current and future transactions. Please use the link below to read specific details:
