Legal References:[Federal Register: October 6, 2006 (Volume 71, Number 194)] [Proposed Rules] [Page 59203-59259] 10 CFR 430.32(e)(1)(i) and (e)(2)(i)

Residential furnaces and boilers must meet the energy conservation standards specified in the Code of Federal Regulations, 10 CFR 430.32(e)(1)(i) and (e)(2)(i). Covered products must meet Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE) specifications for non-weatherized and weatherized furnaces. Standards cover both weatherized and non-weatherized furnaces, mobile home furnaces, and small outdoor furnaces. Regulations apply to gas, oil-fired, and electric furnaces. Standards mandatory as of 2015 for residential boilers will save approximately 0.3 quads of energy and result in approximately $5 billion in energy bill savings for products shipped from 2015-2044. The standard will avoid about 17.7 million metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions.
