As of today April 3, 2013 we have 4 weeks until the courts rule on The Regional Standards Act.Despite a filing to rescind the May 1st2013 deadline, there has been no decision made by the court. As of right now the deadline of May 1st 2013 stands.
We have 4 weeks before a big decision is made in our industry.If the court does not respond to this filing, 30 states in the northern portion of our country (including Utah) will be required to install only 90+ efficiency furnaces as of May 1st 2013.
90+% efficient furnace installations may pose some very difficult situations.The venting systems for high efficient furnaces use pvc pipe to carry the combustion products to the outside of the home.High efficient furnaces also create condensation and need a drain to properly drain the water.
As Manwill Plumbing and Heating awaits this decision, we will be sure to do our best and keep our customers informed of the final ruling on this situation.
