Title

Ceiling Fan Energy Conservation Harmonization Act

Official Title

A bill to deem the compliance date for amended energy conservation standards for ceiling fan light kits to be January 21, 2020, and for other purposes.

Summary

Ceiling Fan Energy Conservation Harmonization Act (Sec. 2) This bill makes January 21, 2020, the compliance date for the amended energy conservation standards for ceiling fan light kits, which is also the compliance date for ceiling fan standards. Currently, the compliance date for the ceiling fan light kits is January 7, 2019.
    Are you serious? This is what you’re spending your time on? This is a waste. Clearly some donor has a stake in a ceiling fan manufacturing company and wants to make a few more bucks before the new standards are enforced.

    Why waste time & resources pushing it a year off? Just keep it @ 2019

    I had the pleasure of installing five ceiling fans this year. Many of the fan manufacturers have switched to variable speed fans. They run quieter and use less energy. I also do not see a need to delay the standards for another year. Other segments of the consumer goods market that need New rules. Congress should mandate a switch to variable speed motors in HVAC units and also for pool pumps. Use of a single speed motor is practically always a waste of money and energy. I am sad to say that we need a substantial study and plan for a forced transition to non-carbon energy sources.

    I can't believe Congress is wasting time on this. Deadlines already set; Congress should really be doing more important things then delaying Energy Efficiency to make some manufacturer some money. And to those who voted yes thinking this requires efficiency, a yes vote only delays the deadline at which the regulation should take effect.

    If Trumpster has anything to do with it, S 2030, which makes great sense, will never see the light of day. 🤬

    I wonder how long ceiling fan manufacturers have already had to meet the standards. Just one more example of “our” elected officials bending over for their real bosses. I guess we already solved the problems of poverty and homelessness while I was taking my afternoon nap, right?

    Yes because we always should conserve energy, but should be rewritten to not have to be updated. Stupid.

    Why is this considered a Federal issue? Simply enforce existing laws concerning electrical safety!

    Why extend the deadline? I’m confident manufacturers can meet the current deadline.

    The compliance date should not be extended. Producers of ceiling fans should get their act together and be compliant by the original date set for 2019.
