As if supply-chain shortages, labor shortages and cost of inflation and were not enough, building owners and operators need to be prepared for the effects that new efficiency standards mandated by the Department of Energy (DOE) could have on them.
Beginning January of 2023, the northern part of the United States will need to increase their minimum efficiency to 14 SEER. This also accompanies the new heating efficiency of air-source heat pumps. While this is projected to save building owners and operators money in the years to come, there could be a substantial upfront cost in time and resources in preparing for this change.
These mandates will be crucial to understand in new construction projects, and in upcoming renovations. At Best Mechanical, we care about the safety and well-being of you occupants as much as you do.
