⚠️ Upcoming Department of Energy Regulations

Effective January 1, 2023, significant regulations to energy efficiency standards require mandatory compliance

The Department of Energy (DOE) evaluates appliances every six years to determine whether minimum efficiency requirements and testing standards warrant a change.

The DOE identified that the inefficiencies in commercial and residential units were a prime contributor to our climate crisis. In response, a multi-phase standards policy was developed to require the production of higher-efficiency cooling units.

In 2018, the first set of efficiency regulations went into effect– Phase One of the revised standards focused on energy-efficiency increases in all air conditioning units by about 15%.

Phase Two, coming in January of 2023, will push the minimum efficiencies for central air conditioners and heat pumps up to 30% (an additional 15%) and testing procedures will change as well.

What does this mean for manufacturers, distributors, and contractors?

There are both immediate and long-term impacts as a result of these changes, as well as changes in refrigerant standards.

HARDI advises members that a key compliance strategy will be the continued education of customers and employees. Some companies have taken the additional step of including compliance language on packing slips or invoices. Among the versions they have seen:

“By accepting this product, I agree that it will be installed in accordance with all local, state, and federal requirements.”

“This product may be subject to new Regional Efficiency Standards. Please refer to the Energy Guide label or http://www.energy.gov/gc/regional-standards-enforcement to ensure compliance.”

“By accepting this product, I agree that (Insert Company) has informed me of any restrictions regarding installation requirements of Regional Efficiency Standards and take sole responsibility for the future sale and/or installation of this unit.”
