HARDI Urges DOE to Not Undermine Energy Efficiency Incentives

HARDI submitted these comments to the U.S. Department of Energy for two rulemakings evaluating the minimum appliance standards for residential furnaces, central air-conditioners, and heat pumps. Expressing concerns over the negative impact an increase in minimum standards, or their regionalization, could have on the growing energy efficiency programs that have become such a vital driver for high-efficiency HVAC installations, HARDI questions DOE assumptions that an increase in minimum standards would have minimum impact on the HVAC industry and consumers.
