Brothers Plumbing & Heating Announce Deadline For Installation of 80% AFUE Model Furnaces in Colorado

Broomfield Furnace Installation and Replacement Professionals at Brothers Plumbing & Heating

Broomfield, CO (PRWEB) January 21, 2013 -- Broomfield Furnace installation and replacement experts at Brothers Plumbing & Heating are encouraging people who are considering installing an 80% AFUE Model Furnace to act fast. New Federal Energy Star Requirements mandate that after 05/01/2013 only 90% efficiency furnaces can be installed in Colorado.

This means that all Broomfield furnace installation and replacement contractors will be required to install the new type of furnace which is more expensive. 90% efficiency furnaces emit water vapor along with CO2 which would rust the existing flue, so a special PVC flue must be installed along with the new furnace. “The new 90% efficiency units are definitely better for the environment but we understand that for many families cost is the primary concern. The 80% efficiency models are very efficient and a Broomfield furnace installation using the 80% models is less expensive,” says Lynn of Brothers Plumbing & Heating.
