HVACR Energy Efficiency Regulations are heating up: Upcoming DOE direct final rule changes, What they mean to you and what to do about it.
The US Department of Energy (DOE) issued 10 Direct Final Rules recently, with dozens more expected over the next several years with an impact to the HVACR industry.
This white paper and webinar recording from industry experts Mike Stem & Byron Horak both bring you behind the scenes of what it means when a rule change goes into effect. They discuss the process for regulation development, resulting requirements for additional product testing, and what’s next for Energy Efficiency standards. Topics include:
Regulations from last year alone will impact product scope and categories, Energy Efficiency levels, testing processes, and more. Direct Final Rules for HVACR test procedures, energy conversation standard changes and new certification requirements are discussed. Other topics impacting the industry are also highlighted, such as regulation of components, commercial HVAC metrics changing to IEER (9/30/14 Notice of Proposed Rule), and walk-in refrigeration regulation.
