The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) has recognized AHAM’s Room Air-Conditioner standard as an American National Standard. The standard, Room Air-Conditioners, AHAM RAC-1-2008, earned recognition through ANSI’s peer review canvass process.
The AHAM RAC-1-2008 standard establishes repeatable procedures and evaluation methods for
measuring performance characteristics of room air-conditioners. The standard describes
definitions, testing conditions, and performance tests for Cooling Capacity, Moisture Removal
Capacity, Ventilating and Exhaust Air Quantity, and Maximum Operating Conditions.
