HARDI Helps DOE Understand HVACR Distribution

HARDI organized a tour of full-line HVACR wholesale distributor member, Aireco Supply in Savage, MD for DOE and Navigant Consulting analysts on Friday. DOE is currently preparing for two appliance standards rulemakings on HVAC residential products. Central air-conditioners and heat pump efficiency standards are being reviewed, as are standards for gas furnaces, and all of these products are potentially subject to regionalized standards. HARDI has been working with DOE to better understand the impact analysis process for evaluating the impact of efficiency standard changes on wholesale distributors, and ultimately end customers. Today's tour marked a major step towards helping DOE better characterize HVACR wholesale distribution and, therefore, perform more accurate market analyses in these and future rulemakings.
