Brandon Admin Cracking Down On Air Conditioning

Why should Biden and his Comrades care that this will spike the cost? They’re rich. It won’t bother them. The working and middle classes? Yet another hit in the wallet

Biden admin cracks down on air conditioners as war on appliances continues

The Biden administration announced its latest home appliance regulations this week, targeting air conditioners in an action it said would reduce the nation’s carbon emissions.

The regulations, unveiled Thursday by the Department of Energy (DOE), finalize energy efficiency standards for home air conditioning units, or window air conditioners, and portable air cleaners. The DOE said the move would cut air pollution and push consumer costs down by billions of dollars via energy savings.

“Today’s announcement builds on the historic actions President Biden took last year to strengthen outdated energy efficiency standards, which will help save on people’s energy bills and reduce our nation’s carbon footprint,” Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm said in a statement.

If you spend $1,000 more on a unit, and save $200, is that a win? Or, even if it’s an almost even swap, can the average American afford the extra cost upfront?

According to the DOE, the new energy efficiency standards will save Americans about $1.5 billion annually and curb carbon dioxide emissions by 106 million metric tons over three decades. The agency added that the regulations were part of President Biden’s efforts to promote innovation and lower costs for families “while tackling the climate crisis.”

Piss off, cultist.

Over the last several months, meanwhile, the DOE has introduced a series of energy efficiency regulations impacting various home appliances including gas stoves, ovens, clothes washers and refrigerators. Critics have blasted the rules as federal overreach and unnecessary given that the industry has improved technology without government intervention.

“What these mandates, what these standards do is enforce a level of efficiency that doesn’t make sense,” Ben Lieberman, a senior fellow at the Competitive Enterprise Institute, told Fox News Digital in an interview last week. “And they compromise product quality. We’ve already seen this to an extent with cost of clothes washer standards.”

The standards can make the units either too expensive for most to purchase, or substandard. All for an imaginary problem. Really, the best way is to make products that last a long time. My washer and dryer were purchased from Sears in 1994. They still work (knock on wood). Maybe they aren’t as efficient as today’s models, especially the dryer, but, a lot better than replacing every 5 years or so, right?

    Teach that savings if $200, I think that is the savings per year

    I hear Brandon is re-naming the ATF to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, Gas stoves and Air Conditioners..

    “We won two world wars without air conditioning our federal employees. Nothing in their performance over the last 50 or 60 years suggests that A/C has improved things. Besides, The Washington Post informs us that A/C is sexist, and that Europeans think it’s stupid. In fact, we should probably ban air conditioning in the entire District of Columbia, to ensure that members of Congress, etc. won’t congregate in lobbyists’ air-conditioned offices.”
