DOE Sets Furnace Fan Efficiency Standards

The US Energy Department has set new energy efficiency standards for furnace fans that it says will reduce carbon pollution by at least 3 billion metric tons by 2030.

The efficiency standards are the latest of eight finalized standards and nine proposed standards issued since the President Obama announced the Climate Action Plan last year.

Cumulatively, the efficiency standards will save more than $60 billion and cut carbon pollution by 340 million metric tons over the next 15 years, according to energy secretary Ernest Moniz.

A standard furnace fan for a 70,000 Btu per hour furnace consumes approximately 1,000 kilowatt-hours per year and this standard could reduce energy use by 46 percent.
