In California, strict regulations target nitrous oxide (NOx) emissions from residential gas furnaces. But what are Low NOx and Ultra-Low NOx? This article explores their importance and how ICL Gaskets & Insulation offers innovative HVAC solutions that surpass California’s environmental requirements
Ultra Low NOx
In order to achieve a 40% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2030, certain regions of California have implemented regulations on nitrous oxide (NOx) emissions from residential gas furnaces.
What is Low NOx or Ultra-Low NOx?
NOx stands for nitrogen oxides, a group of harmful and toxic greenhouse gases. These gases are released when fuel is burned at high temperatures, such as in a residential gas furnace. Low NOx and Ultra-Low NOx refer to emission limits set for these products, which are determined by local EPA standards and vary depending on the type of heating equipment.
ICL makes your Ultra Low NOx HVAC systems more sustainable.
Whether your target market for heating solutions is California or not, ICL Gaskets & Insulation has a thermal solution that enables your HVAC applications to meet or exceed California's South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD) and the San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District (SJVAPCD) requirements for drastically reducing NOx emissions.
These solutions aren’t only available for residential units. ICL doesn’t shy away to battle the heat when it comes to the commercial heating market. Keep the heat in your products at bay, by contacting an ICL engineer today.
