New minimum energy efficiency standards for the Department of Energy (DOE) begin on January 1, 2023, and John Stevenson Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. will be ready to serve your needs. When it comes to providing energy-efficient quality products that meet future demands, our priority is to be a leader within the HVAC industry.
These new regulations are an effort to reduce energy consumption. HVAC manufacturers will be required to produce central air-conditioning and air-source heat pump systems that meet new minimum 2023 energy efficiency standards. The minimum efficiency requirements are changing, but testing regulations that determine efficiencies have also been amended.
It is also important that we inform, educate and equip you, our valued customer, with the tools to be successful with this transition to new efficiency standards and equipment requirements.
Along with new equipment, in 2023 there will also be changes in testing requirements for HVAC systems and equipment. Manufacturers are working on redesigning system components to meet these new regulations.
There are new testing procedures for SEER2 that will better represent external conditions. These new procedures take into account ductwork and static pressure, which were not included in previous tests.
Heat pumps and air conditioning units will have updated testing requirements
Our customers are always top of mind, and we will continue to support you by producing energy-efficient products that meet the DOE requirements.
