Last fall the Department of Energy ruling that any replacement furnace after May 1, 2013 would need to be a high efficient condensing furnace.
As of right now that is still true but very likely to change. The American Public Gas Association filed a suit against the DOE to get this ruling changed.
The APGA and the DOE have reached an agreement to lift the date specified and allow standard efficient furnaces to still be in-stalled after May 1 of this year pending court approval. All involved in the suit as well as legal experts say that court approval is largely a formality since both sides have agreed.
The settlement calls for a rewriting of furnace-efficiency standards and to come up with a revised rule within a year and a final ruling the following year. One important provision is that public comment will be encouraged.

many real estate professionals, don't realize is that the best way to approach the market has also undergone a transformation during this period. Methods of looking for homes to buy have changed as have the most effective sales and advertising techniques.
