The South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD) has issued new regulations regarding furnace emissions. All manufacturers, distributors, sellers, and installers of residential furnaces must abide by the new law, which started September 30, 2019. Accurate Electric, Plumbing, Heating, and Air, an HVAC, plumbing, and electrical services company that serves Los Angeles County, Orange County, and beyond, is supporting this new initiative
Accurate would also like to inform current customers about the new initiative rolled out by the SCAQMD. This regulation is targeting residential fan-type central furnaces that are natural-gas-fired. Both condensing and non-condensing furnaces may not exceed the NOx emission limit of 14 ng/J. Those who violate this law by purchasing or installing a system that exceeds this limit after September 30, 2019, will be fined as a result.
The initiative is also aimed towards residents who are planning to purchase and install a new furnace. Homeowners are encouraged to procure a compliant furnace in order to be eligible to receive a rebate, with a value of up to $500. After the first 6,000 rebates, the amount will be decreased to $200 and $300 for non-condensing and condensing furnaces respectively. Accurate also encourages customers to act fast and take advantage of the discount before it’s all gone, especially if your furnace is 15 years or older. Those who are currently seeking furnace repairs would benefit the most from a total furnace replacement that complies with the updated NOx regulations.
Current and potential customers of Accurate can contact the company to learn more about this new SCAQMD regulation. Customers are also encouraged to contact Accurate for any heating, plumbing, and electrical repair services in Los Angeles County or Orange County, CA, they need this fall season and beyond.
