The Construction Industries and Manufactured Housing Division (CID/MHD) of the Regulation and Licensing Department of New Mexico said some are recent installs of Goodman furnaces, but some faulty ones go back to 2007.

Fifteen Goodman brand furnaces were discovered by the Liquid Petroleum Gas Bureau that were installed incorrectly and were using improper materials. The Bureau learned of over a dozen other furnaces that were posing life safety risks.

New Mexico Regulation and Licensing Department Superintendent Mike Unthank said, “I strongly urge everyone in the affected area, who has recently had a Goodman furnace installed, to please call us. It is of the utmost importance that furnaces be properly installed and inspected; call us and we will ensure that your furnace is safe to use.”

The furnaces in question were placed from 2007 to 2015, and have been found in and around the towns of Tucumcari, House, Logan, Nara Visa and San Jon. ##

High Income Residences for Low Income Residents

October 26th, 2012 Comments off

Philly reports low-income housing in a section of Philadelphia called Logan rivals high-income housing elsewhere. The three modular rowhouses are stylish and modern, and among the most energy efficient homes anywhere, with solar paneled roofs that reduce the energy consumption level to near zero, crucial for the poorest of the poor who will be living there. Developed by Onion Flats, the homes are the first in Pennsylvania to be certified by the Germany-based International Passive House Institute because their energy consumption is near zero. Stuffed with insulation and outfitted with Bosch appliances and European windows, a heat exchanger maintains a comfortable temperature inside the homes. Partnering with the nonprofit Raise of Hope, Onion Flats  set 25-foot deep piers to stabilize the modules because of Logan’s shifting soil. Costing $250,000 apiece, the five-bedroom homes will be occupied by families with incomes below $25,000 annually, MHProNews has been informed.
