Gas Furnaces Will Be Phased Out in CA by 2030: Explained

Closeup of a gas furnace burner

In a groundbreaking move, California makes strides toward a greener future by phasing out gas furnaces. By 2030, the California Air Resources Board (CARB) has banned the sale of new gas furnaces and water heaters. This is an effort to push homeowners toward zero-emissions alternatives like electric furnaces, heat pumps, and electric water heaters.

This initiative shows California’s commitment to combating climate change. For homeowners in the Bay Area, this change means it’s time to prepare to transition to electric heating solutions.

California’s Plans To Phase Out Gas Furnaces

California is at the forefront of environmental protection. Our legislators are determined to minimize the state’s carbon footprint, and the decision by CARB to ban the sale of new gas furnaces by 2030 is part of that strategy.

This move is designed to transition homes and businesses across the state to electric heaters and other zero-emissions alternatives that will significantly reduce pollution and create a healthier environment for all Californians.

This is part of California’s larger goal of reaching carbon neutrality by 2045, setting a benchmark for sustainable living practices nationwide. By prioritizing electric and renewable energy sources for heating, California is trying to minimize the impacts of climate change and lead by example.

The hope is to demonstrate that significant environmental improvements are possible with committed action and forward-thinking policies.


What Does This Mean for My Gas Furnace?

For homeowners currently relying on gas furnaces, this transition means you have to start thinking about your furnace replacement, even if your heating system has a few years left.

When the time comes to upgrade your unit, you’ll need a heating system that complies with upcoming regulations. While existing gas furnaces can still be used, there will be a push toward heat pump and electric furnace installations.

California homeowners can still service and maintain their existing gas furnaces. The ban focuses on the sale of new gas furnaces and water heaters.

While the sale of new units will be restricted, maintenance and repairs of existing gas furnaces can continue to make sure they operate safely and efficiently until, eventually, all homeowners have switched to more sustainable heating options.
