Dept of Energy Mandate

Have you heard about the new mandate on 80% furnaces? Well folks the Department of Energy (DOE) has now issued a new law that for this great country on what is the new minimum of efficiency we can install on furnaces. The DOE has sectioned off what minimums certain states have to have.

(See diagram below.)

 

As you can see Kansas is in the Northern Region for the efficiency to be no less than 90%. This new mandate is set to go into effect on May 1, 2013. This means that it will be illegal for us as a company to sell or install any 80% furnace after May 1st of 2013.
