AHRI urged DOE to keep the enforcement regulations as simple as possible, and to rely on a combination of existing resources to create an effective enforcement program that minimizes the burden on manufacturers, distributors, and contractors. Such resources include: the AHRI certification directory; industry and DOE educational efforts; and appropriate AHRI-recommended changes to the Federal Trade Commission’s (FTC’s) EnergyGuide labels.
AHRI also opposed a proposed waiver concept that would provide a process to allow the installation of non-complying furnaces in the North region under certain conditions.
