DOE/EE RIN: 1904-AE37 Publication ID: Fall 2019 
Title: Test Procedures for Consumer Warm Air Furnaces 

On November 14, 2018, DOE published a notification of petition from the Air-Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute (AHRI) asking DOE to initiate notice-and-comment rulemaking to develop a new, unified test procedure for residential furnaces which would replace the three currently required performance metrics (i.e., annual fuel utilization efficiency (AFUE), fan efficiency ratio (FER), and standby mode/off mode energy consumption (PW, SB and PW, OFF) with a single new metric (AFUE2).  Based on the review of public comments and data received in response to this petition, DOE proposes to respond to that petition.
