New Web address, new name for ARI Certification Directory; More changes to come for AHRI sites

February 18, 2008

What was formerly known as the ARI Certification Directory is the now called the AHRI Directory of Certified Product Performance, and it also has a new Web address: www.AHRIdirectory.org.

AHRI (the association comprised of the former Air-Conditioning Refrigeration Institute – ARI, and the Gas Appliance Manufacturers Association – GAMA) is asking members to spread the word among their customers of this change and to update their hyperlinks to the directory and mentions of the Web address in their marketing literature. The GAMA and I=B=R databases of certified heating equipment will remain at their current address (www.GAMApower.org), although future plans are underway to merge the three programs into one directory.

Additionally, work is in progress on the newly launched AHRI website (www.AHRInet.org). The site, which is under construction, introduces the newly merged association, and features AHRI news, events, and leadership and membership rosters.

The new website also provides links to the former GAMA and ARI websites, both of which remain operational while the AHRI site is further constructed. Prior to the merger, ARI had been working on the development of a new website. This site launched on January 28. Although it currently carries the ARI name and URL (www.ari.org), this site will be developed as the primary AHRI website over the next several months. It will eventually reflect AHRI’s brand identity and will include content from the former GAMA website. Stay tuned for future updates about the site’s development.
