BREAKING: The Biden Administration Is Preparing to Ban Over Half of All Gas Furnaces and Change How Millions Heat Their Homes

The Biden administration is now willing to let you freeze to death in order to proceed with their radical ”climate change” agenda.

The upcoming regulations by the government will soon be finalized, imposing severe restrictions on the types of furnaces you can purchase for your home in the future and increasing the cost of new purchases.

These rules were initially proposed by the Department of Energy (DOE) in June 2022.

Here are the actual details of the regulations provided by Fox News, which first reported on the matter. The rules could be finalized at any time within the next few weeks.

As reported by Fox News:

Under the proposed regulations, DOE would require furnaces to achieve an annual fuel utilization efficiency (AFUE) of 95% by 2029, meaning manufacturers would only be allowed to sell furnaces that convert at least 95% of fuel into heat within six years. The current market standard AFUE for a residential furnace is 80%.

According to Fox News, this would result in the removal of non-condensing gas furnaces from the market due to AFUE requirements. Consumers who choose to replace their non-condensing furnaces with a condensing one may encounter installation costs that could be hard to cover.

Richard Meyer, the Vice President of Energy Markets, Analysis, and Standards at the American Gas Association (AGA), expressed his concern regarding the rule.

“There are some really technical reasons why this is such a concerning rule. It has to do with the ability for consumers to be in compliance with this new efficiency standard,” he said.

“They’re going to have to, in many cases, install new equipment to exhaust gas out of their home. These higher efficiency units, or so-called condensing units, a lot of consumers have them in their homes, but a lot of consumers don’t. So, this rule would require additional retrofits for a lot of consumers. And those retrofits can be extremely cost prohibitive,” he added.

As per Fox News, the new proposals could result in the banning of as much as 60% of the residential furnaces currently available in the market.

Due to the fact that millions of Americans will be unable to afford both the new equipment and the new furnace, there is a risk that some people will end up freezing to death.
