301. ENERGY EFFICIENCY STANDARDS FOR POOL HEATERS AND DIRECT HEATING 
EQUIPMENT AND WATER HEATERS

Legal Authority: 42 USC 6295(e)

Abstract: The Energy Policy and Conservation Act, as amended, 
establishes initial energy efficiency standard levels for many types of 
major residential appliances and generally requires DOE to undertake 
two subsequent rulemakings, at specified times, to determine whether 
the existing standard for a covered product should be amended. This is 
the initial review of the statutory standards for pool heaters and 
direct heating equipment. This is the second review for water heaters.
