DOE/EE RIN: 1904-AE59 Publication ID: Spring 2022 
Title: Energy Conservation Standards for Commercial Warm Air Furnaces 

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) is initiating an effort to consider amending energy conservation standards for commercial warm air furnaces. Once completed, this rulemaking will fulfill DOE’s statutory obligation to either propose amended energy conservation standards for this equipment or to determine that the existing standards do not need to be amended. To this end, DOE must determine whether national standards more stringent than those currently in place would result in a significant additional amount of energy savings and whether such amended national standards would be technologically feasible and economically justified.

This rulemaking previously included consideration of Energy Conservation Standards for Commercial Air-Cooled Unitary Air Conditioners and Heat Pumps, which is now moving forward in a separate rulemaking under RIN 1904-AF34.
