The Air Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute has requested 18 extra months for producers of residential non-weatherized gas furnaces to meet new energy efficiency standards.

AHRI sent a letter to United States Energy Secretary Steven Chu, asking for an 18-month extension on the take-effect date new standards for home furnaces. This would move the date from May 1, 2013 to November 1, 2014.

AHRI said the extension would give furnace makers "adequate time to prepare for compliance with regional furnace standards and related standards enforcement and product labeling requirements."

AHRI noted that furnace OEMs must ensure that changes in the standards coincide with the start of the 2014-2015 heating season. AHRI also requested that the Department of Energy grant the extension as soon as possible, to prevent manufacturers and distributors from incurring the expense of repositioning product offerings prior to the 2012-2013 heating season, "which would likely result in stranded inventory," AHRI said.
