First Final Furnace Rule Meeting Scheduled
PHCC is looking forward to participating in the first meeting of a U.S. Dept. of Energy rulemaking group to begin negotiating proposed regional federal standards for the energy efficiency requirements of residential and commercial appliances covered under the Final Furnace, Air Conditioner, and Heat Pump Rule. Chuck White, PHCC’s Vice President of Technical & Code Services, will participate in Aug. 13-15 meetings in Washington, D.C., in this follow-up process to the Final Furnace, Air Conditioner, and Heat Pump Rule, a portion of which had been set aside as a result of litigation. The 21-person group is composed of DOE officials, manufacturers, environmental groups, energy providers, distributors and installation contractors.
