DOE announces Fan Energy Rating standard for furnaces. The Department of Energy has introduced new efficiency standards for furnaces that you should be aware of before buying.

The Fan Energy Rating (FER) sets a minimum airflow efficiency standard for residential furnace fans. the DOE Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, and the Office of Energy Delivery and Energy Reliability for their support of the NREL leadership roles in systems standards development (e.g., IEEE Standards Coordinating Committee 21 for fuel cells, photovoltaics.

On JanuDOE received a joint request from the Northwest Energy Efficiency Alliance (NEEA), the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), and Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) to extend the comment period for the NOPR by 60 days so that the data their teams are collecting and analyzing could be submitted to the docket and.

Efficient buildings reduce power demand, and have less of an environmental impact, and put money back into consumer's pockets. The Purpose of Building Energy Codes. Energy codes and standards set minimum efficiency requirements for new and renovated buildings, assuring reductions in energy use and emissions over the life of the building.

How do energy efficiency standards benefit consumers. National appliance standards currently in place save the typical U.S.
