The American Gas Association, representing over 200 energy companies, has sued the Biden administration over new regulations on gas-powered furnaces, arguing that the rules will limit consumer options and lead to increased costs for households and businesses.

The Department of Energy claims the regulations will save Americans money and reduce greenhouse gas emissions, but the AGA disputes this, stating that the impact will be minimal globally and will burden American families with higher costs.

The AGA said the new regulations will “lead to higher costs for 30% of senior households, 27% of small businesses and 26% of low-income households.” (Trending: Judge Announces Historic Ruling In Jeffrey Epstein Case)

The DOE, however, believes the regulations will “save Americans $570 billion and reduce greenhouse gas emissions by more than 2.4 billion metric tons over the next 30 years.”

AGA President and CEO Karen Harbert said Americans will be “saddled with increased costs with little environmental gain.”

“This ruling from DOE will push American families with natural gas heat into a corner — when their furnace goes out, they’ll be forced to choose between retrofitting for electric with the increased month-to-month utility bills that entails or engaging in a costly and time-consuming renovation to retrofit their home for a completely different type of natural gas furnace,” she said.

President Biden’s energy secretary attributes the regulations to Congress’s direction to reduce energy use and pollutants in homes.

“At the direction of Congress, DOE is continuing to review and finalize energy standards for household appliances, such as residential furnaces, to lower costs for working families by reducing energy use and slashing harmful pollutants in homes across the nation,” Jennifer Granholm stated.
