An overview of the paper's content is below.
NYSEARCH engaged Environ/etaPartners to conduct, with (13) of its members, a geographically diverse field study that quantified the performance of different populations of installed and in-service residential appliances. Following an extensive field and laboratory research and data collection effort, the funding group developed a spreadsheet-based interchangeability model. The resulting NYSEARCH RANGE™ model projects the performance of the in-service appliance population when new gas compositions are supplied. Results include the distribution of carbon monoxide emissions and flame characteristics for in-service populations of four different appliances types: water heaters, ovens, boilers, and furnaces.
