The Air-Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute (AHRI) said its 2012 Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Energy Star compliance rates across eight product sections averaged 97.2%. This rate well exceeds the overall average Energy Star compliance rate of 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 (www.ahridirectory.org) lists performance information for about 250,000 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."

In several product categories, AHRI had a 100% compliance rate (zero disqualifications). These product categories include:
Furnaces, commercial ice machines, commercial refrigerators and freezers, and light commercial HVAC.
