There’s news for customers who are shopping to update their houses’ heating and cooling systems. A widely known seal of approval has gone through a redesign.
After certifying the efficiency of more than 150,000,000 ac system, heatpump and other heating and cooling parts for houses and services for almost 50 years, the Board of Directors of the Air-Conditioning and Refrigeration Institute (ARI) has actually approved the redesign of its product efficiency accreditation seal.
The Institute’s certification programs supply a sound engineering basis for ranking the efficiency of HVACR equipment, enable item contrast that benefits customers and makers, and offer incentive to producers to enhance efficiency in order to acquire market share.
Said William G. Sutton, ARI president, “The accreditation seal guarantees consumers that the products they are buying– those utilized in houses, organisations, factories and all structures in between– will carry out as declared.”
The Air-Conditioning and Refrigeration Institute is the trade association representing makers of more than 90 percent of North American-produced central air-conditioning and business refrigeration devices.
It has been administering its industry-directed voluntary programs since 1959, when ARI released its very first product directory. With only 26 participants, the directory was only 19 pages and had just 600 items listed.
Today, it publishes an online version of its directory sites at www.ari.org/cert. The current listing has more than 200 individuals and over 150,000 products noted.
