Might as well just hand your entire wallet over now and get it over with, along with your bank account and safe deposit box.

Greenhouse gas production - pure BS. Millions and billions spent on nonsense.

My last gas furnace was installed over twenty years ago and vented directly outside. I don’t remember that running twenty feet of three inch plastic pipe cost all that much.

Did you see this part of the article?

Similar improvements in energy efficiency are set to go into effect for heat pumps and air conditioning systems in Southern states.

Cool venting gas furnaces are more efficient, and I have neighbors who have them just because they want to. I don’t know why the cool vent can’t also be sent to a chimney or to a roof top vent for convenience sake. The vent is a curiosity because it hisses most of the time.

LOL! Ain't that the truth. Summer 2011 looked like my back yard and garden had been nuked.

Fortunately, the local code inspector is half blind and likes cheap tequila, so using the old Soviet method of coping, I pretty much do what I like here. Bootlegged a pig and called it a dog until it was big enough to slaughter. ;)

Whistling past the graveyard is not the best policy. They will get around to you eventually if they haven’t already.

Best to study Soviet history, and use their experience to guide us through the next few years.

I don’t think the Federal government has any business getting involved in such mandates. But I suspect that these higher efficiency furnaces will save most users quite a bit of money.

When I was a kid we didn’t have air conditioning in the drafty wooden house we lived in. This was about 1980. We did have a water cooler in the living room window that we used sparingly- and it certainly wouldn’t cool the whole house.

The enclosed back porch with screens for windows and a leaky roof was often mine and my brothers room.

Today, it’d be called child abuse. lol

I am just hoping we collapse sooner rather than later so we can get it over with already.

We have a delightful device called a ventless Natural Gas space heater.
best money we spent on the house (East Tenn.)

vents, we don't need no stinking vents

And where in the Constitution does Congress have the power to develop regional standards for central heating and cooling equipment?

Not sure about the cost savings for some folks. They have more (expensive) parts to fail, and nat gas is very cheap these days.
