Savings and payback periods varySome 3 million furnace fans were shipped in the U.S. last year. The department said that a furnace rated at 70,000 Btu/hour uses 1,000 kWh of electricity a year (presumably an average), so a consumer paying 14 cents per kWh for electricity now spends $140 a year to move conditioned air around the house. A 46% savings would drop that bill by $67 a year.Average life-cycle cost savings will vary by the type of furnace, as does the median payback period, according to government estimates. Lifetime savings were estimated at $506 for a non-weatherized, non-condensing gas furnace, and less for other types.The standards are performance-based, meaning the government doesn’t tell manufacturers how to meet the new rule. The conversion to more efficient fans will be expensive for the industry, although it’s not clear exactly how much the move will cost and how the new fans would affect consumer prices.The Air-Conditioning, Heating and Refrigeration Institute, a trade group representing furnace manufacturers, commented in a letter to the department in January that it “considers the adverse impacts of the proposed fan energy rating levels to be significant to the manufacturing industry.” The group also said it didn’t think the new standards would be cost-effective to consumers.Contacted June 26, AHRI said it was still developing a position on the final rule. New efficiency standards for fans installed on forced-air furnaces will reduce power consumption by as much as 46% and save U.S. consumers more than $9 billion on power bills through 2030, the Department of Energy says.The department announced the new rules on June 25, saying they were part of the federal Climate Action Plan and were the latest of eight final and nine proposed standards issued since last year.More efficient fans, which will be required beginning in 2019, will reduce carbon emissions by as much as 34 million metric tons through 2030, the DOE said.The specifics of the rule are spelled out in a lengthy document that lists requirements for different types of furnaces. Each type must meet a certain Fan Energy Rating, which is the amount of electricity needed to move a cubic foot of air per minute (watts/cfm).Savings in electricity ranged from 46% for several types of gas furnace to as little as 12% for non-condensing oil furnaces and certain furnaces for mobile homes.

Wide receiver Santonio Holmes is set to make his preseason debut for the New York Jets on Sunday night.The former Super Bowl MVP hasn’t played a game since his infamous benching in last year’s regular season finale.Jets coach Rex Ryan confirmed the news on Friday, saying that both Holmes and slot receiver Jeremy Kerley will face the Carolina Panthers. Their much-needed return should come as a big boost to a struggling offense that has failed to score a touchdown in the preseason. The Mark Sanchez-led first unit has yet to produce a point in eight possessions.“I hope it could be a big spark,” Kerley said. “Get some new legs out there and give Mark some [more] targets.”Holmes has been sidelined since being hit by cornerback Antonio Cromartie in an August 4 intra-squad scrimmage and suffering rib cartilage damage.The Jets’ only proven receiver returned to practice on a limited basis this week. The seventh-year pro from Ohio State started all 16 games last year, totaling 51 receptions for 654 yards and eight touchdowns.For his career, Holmes boasts 77 receiving plays of 20 yards or better and 17 that have been good for at least 40 yards. Two hundred fifty-six of his 338 career catches have gone for first downs.Holmes was named the MVP of Super Bowl XVIII after totaling nine catches for 131 yards and a touchdown to help Pittsburgh outlast Arizona, 27-23. Four of his receptions and 73 of his yards came on the game’s final drive, punctuated by his spectacular game-winning catch in the contest’s waning moments.Kerley has missed most of training camp with a slight hamstring tear.Ryan said he expects his starters to play three quarters Sunday, although both Holmes and Kerley will each be limited to about 10 to 15 plays.None of the Jets starters or backup quarterback Tim Tebow is expected to play in the team’s preseason finale against the Philadelphia Eagles on August 30.
Everton Football Club have apologized for breaking Premier League rules regarding the signing of young players to club academies.The Toffees were fined £500,000 and banned from signing young registered academy players in England for the next two years after they were found guilty of inducements to players and their families.A club statement said, according to talkSPORT:Jose Mourinho is sold on Lampard succeeding at Chelsea Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 14, 2019 Jose Mourinho wanted to give his two cents on Frank Lampard’s odds as the new Chelsea FC manager, he thinks he will succeed.There really…“Everton has worked alongside the Premier League over recent weeks to conduct a full and thorough investigation into allegations relating to our Academy’s operational methods in some areas of player recruitment.”“In short, we are extremely disappointed with some of the practices we have found which are not in line with our values and not acceptable to Everton Football Club. Accordingly, we have accepted the penalties imposed on us by the Premier League and have given them our strongest apologies.”“We have already commenced a full review of our Academy operations and are committed to ensuring that issues like this do not happen again at Everton.”
The magazine is set to open with a 450,000 rate base, and will complement Oz’s syndicated television talk show.”He’s convincing America that a healthy lifestyle is the bedrock of happiness,” says Herzig in a statement. “I’m looking forward to working with him to create a rich, imaginative editorial package for that transformative message.” Hearst Corp. president and CEO Steve Swartz and Hearst Magazines president David Carey looked inward in recruiting Redbook editor-in-chief Jill Herzig for the same position at Dr. Oz The Good Life.Her hiring, announced Wednesday, comes after word that the magazine will go to a 10X frequency with the Aug./Sept. 2014 launch after successful test releases in January and April. They were under the editorial direction of Alison Brower, but she is leaving Hearst Magazines to return to California.In terms of magazine seniority, Dr Oz is quite a change for Herzig because Redbook is 111 years old. However, shaking up the norm isn’t something Herzig is shy about doing. She did upgrade the beauty and fashion portion of Redbook content from 30 to 50 percent in April 2013 while ending such former editorial mainstays as parenting and relationships. When she was at Redbook she told min that her role was “a never-ending process of keeping Redbook fresh.”From 2003-2010, Herzig was Glamour executive editor and top lieutenant to editor-in-chief Cindi Leive. Earlier career stops included SELF, New Woman and Cosmopolitan under the late editor-in-chief Helen Gurley Brown.

Now playing: Watch this: More From Roadshow 42 Photos Porsche 2019 Chevy Malibu review: Swing and a miss 19 Photos 2020 Hyundai Palisade review: Posh enough to make Genesis jealous 0 Enlarge ImageFor a few moments, the Taycan will put down over 700 horsepower. Yowza.By this time next week, we’ll finally have seen Porsche’s long-awaited Taycan electric sedan. Ahead of time, there are new details still spilling out about the electric car, and this tidbit is one for the power-hungry driver.Per a drive preview from Autocar, the range-topping Porsche Taycan supposedly sports an overboost function that will help the car produce over 700 horsepower for a period of time. That’s Dodge Challenger Hellcat territory, minus any engine emissions. Reportedly, this range-topping car will be split into Taycan Turbo and Taycan Turbo S designations — a goofy nomenclature considering there are no turbos onboard, but I digress.The overboost function activates for 2.5 seconds to unlock 700-plus horsepower and supposedly helps send the electric car from 0 to 60 mph in under 3 seconds. Porsche has long been keen to point out the Taycan will absolutely house the company’s spirit and performance, and so far, the German marque appears to be delivering.It’s likely the overboost function played a key part in the car’s 7:42 Nurburgring Nordschleife run. While the lap time didn’t set any overall lap records, it is the fastest four-door electric car around the 12.8-mile circuit. Porsche also showcased the fact its upcoming electric sedan can go from 0 to 124 mph and back in just 10 seconds — multiple times in a testament to the battery-electric powertrain’s grunt.Without the overboost, we’re likely looking at around 600 hp for the range-topping Taycan along with a 300-mile range. Expect other models to fill the lineup with less performance and shorter ranges. We’ll have the full details when Porsche is ready to show the car off in September.

Sono Typically, if you had moss in the interior of your car, that would be considered a bad thing. That’s not necessarily the case for this small, solar-powered electric vehicle from German startup Sono.The Sono Sion uses the moss, which is covered with a transparent panel, thankfully, and according to a report Thursday by Electrek, it’s part of the Sion’s cabin air filtering system. Unlike the moss inside Goodyear’s Oxygene tire concept, this moss has kicked the proverbial bucket, but because of its structure, it’s still a good filter.The Sion was conceived as a low-cost EV and debuted back in March with a 35 kilowatt-hour battery and a body covered in solar panels, but this is the first we’re seeing of its interior. The rest of the passenger cabin is pretty sparse, with a small digital instrument binnacle in front of the driver and a Tesla Model 3-like central screen sprouting from the dash.Enlarge ImageIn addition to the mossy dash, the Sono Sion is slathered in solar panels to help keep its 35 kWh battery topped up. Sono The Sion was initially marketed for the low, low price of $18,000 but — and this might be a little shocking (pun intended) — the battery pack costs extra. That is estimated to cost an additional $10,500 if bought outright, or there would be a monthly fee. I know that sounds weird, but it’s not unheard of in Europe — the Renault Zoe is sold this way.It’s unlikely that we’ll ever see the Sono Sion on our roads here in the US, but the company says it should enter production for Europe sometime in the latter half of 2020.
