AHRI exceeds Energy Star compliance rates
The Air-Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute announced that its 2012 EPA Energy Star compliance rates were above average. The compliance rates across eight product sections averaged 97.2%. The overall average Energy Star compliance rate is 93%
“These high compliance rates warrant recognition from regulatory bodies and industry officials alike,” said AHRI President and CEO Stephen Yurek. “They demonstrate the integrity of our certification program and the commitment of our program participants to quality and accuracy."
The AHRI Directory of Certified Product Performance at www.ahridirectory.org lists performance information for 1 million products in 40 categories.
"These exemplary compliance rates illustrate the consistency and standard of excellence that are hallmarks of AHRI’s globally recognized and industry respected certification program," Yurek continued. "In fact, the 2.8% of products disqualified by the EPA were identified based on information supplied by AHRI. This is a strong indication that government agencies, commercial interests, and consumers alike can and should continue to rely on AHRI’s certification programs for accurate product performance information.”
