The ACCA has published a new ComforTool that aims to help members educate their customers on furnace standards. The new series of fliers are called “Northerners... Should You Replace Your Furnace Today?” They attempt to explain the implications of the regional energy efficiency standards for furnaces that will go into effect in less than one year.

“It is likely that most customers do not understand what the new regional standards mean for them or how they could cost them more money and cause potential problems,” said Paul T. Stalknecht, ACCA president and CEO. “This new ComforTool will help contractors in the northern region explain what is coming in terms of these new standards and why upgrading now may be the best option. As other regional standards go into effect, ACCA will continue to provide these types of tools to help contractors educate their customers.”

Members of the Air Conditioning Contractors of America can download the regional standards requirements ComforTool, and any of the other ComforTools in the library, for free at www.acca.org/comfortools.
