The Air-Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute (AHRI) has upgraded its Directory of Certified Product Performance with EnergyGuide labels.
The labels are included for all basic models in several product categories:
* unitary small air-conditioners
* unitary small heat pumps
* variable speed mini split air-conditioners
* variable speed mini split heat pumps
* residential boilers
* residential furnaces
* residential water heaters
The labels images were added to ensure compliance with a final rule issued by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) that requires images of EnergyGuide labels to be available for electronic linking and downloading.
"This added functionality fulfills all EnergyGuide label availability requirements, and ensures that our members remain in good standing with the FTC," said AHRI President and CEO Stephen Yurek. "We're pleased that our directory can alleviate this added burden for our certification program participants while providing all necessary information to the Commission. It is another benefit of participation in our globally recognized, industry respected certification program," he said.
The directory allows users to validate and export data and to generate product certificates. To be included in the Directory, products and equipment are subject to rigorous testing at an independent, third party laboratory under contract to AHRI.
The directory can be accessed from the AHRI website homepage:
