In order to reflect the name change of the newly formed Air-Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute's (AHRI), the Directory of Certified Product Performance will change its Web address to effective Feb. 5, 2008. On this date, consumers seeking information regarding the certified performance ratings of HVACR equipment will no longer be able to access the directory using the old Web site address.

On Jan. 1, the Air-Conditioning and Refrigeration Institute (ARI) merged with the Gas Appliance Manufacturers Association (GAMA) to become AHRI. While the organizations merged, the certification directory listing the GAMA certified equipment will still be located at, although future plans are underway to combine the programs into one directory.

Users will notice when visiting that some changes have already been made. Over the past several months, the directory has been undergoing a face-lift to enhance search capabilities and make it easier to find certified products. Users are encouraged to bookmark the directory's new address and use this tool to help them find certified HVACR equipment and components.

The Air-Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute (AHRI) is the trade association representing manufacturers of air conditioning, heating and commercial refrigeration equipment. For additional information, visit
