The Air-Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute (AHRI) said it is pleased by the results of verification testing of appliances and tankless and storage water heaters released by the U.S. Department of Energy under the Energy Star program. The released results show that all tests of the claimed efficiency levels for storage and tankless water heaters turned up not a single result that would require further action.

"The results of these tests support our belief that our certification participants' products are being properly rated and should not be the focus of enhanced federal scrutiny," said AHRI President and CEO Stephen Yurek. "The water heater tests are an excellent indication that AHRI's private-sector certification program should be relied upon by DOE to verify compliance with federal energy efficiency standards," he added.

Of the products listed in the table (below), only tankless water heaters and storage water heaters had perfect results, while no other category had less than 14% of the products requiring further action.

"The complete results indicate that the Department's focus would be better aimed at other product categories, where there has not been a long history of an industry supported and recognized certification program," Yurek said.
