If you are in the market for an air conditioning or heating system for your home or business in the state of Nevada, you may have seen the term “AHRI-certified” floating around. But what exactly does that mean?
The acronym “AHRI” stands for the Air-Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute. The AHRI is, essentially, a union comprised of manufacturers of heating and cooling products. This union fights for quality, developing standards that products should meet, and then ensuring those products meet those standards. Therefore, if you buy an AHRI-certified product, you know that product has met stringent requirements to be of the utmost quality.
Here at Ambient Edge, we pride ourselves on ensuring that all our products meet the industry standards and surpass the kind of quality you’re looking for. Call us at 888-230-5160 for more information about our AHRI-certified products.
Benefits of AHRI Certification
When a product is AHRI-certified, this means that you can essentially expect the best product the market has to offer. The product should be quiet, energy efficient, allowing you to enjoy uninterrupted service from a well-oiled machine. And if, for some reason, the product stops working as it should, our professionals at Ambient Edge should have you up and running again in no time.
If you are a business, you too can benefit from AHRI-certified products. Do you use transport refrigeration to carry perishable goods from a warehouse to individual stores? Do you heat your business with a boiler? Do you use a hot water heater? All these products must be running in tip-top shape to keep you and your customers happy. AHRI-certified products guarantee flawless service.
How AHRI Certification Benefits Companies
AHRI benefits customers like you, certainly, but it also benefits the companies who comply with the industry standards. For one thing, it reduces the chance of any one company having a monopoly on an industry because everyone is expected to produce similar products with similarly high levels of quality.
For another, companies who comply with AHRI standards foster trust in their customers. And those customers will continue to shop with that company, confident that the company truly cares about their customers by providing them with the very best products in the industry.
Examples of AHRI-Certified Products
There are all kinds of heating and cooling products that can be AHRI-certified, both for residences and businesses. Below is only a short list of the many products that can come AHRI-certified:
- Residential and commercial furnaces, boilers, and water heaters
- Direct heating
- Automatic commercial ice-makers
- Indoor pool dehumidifiers
- Transport refrigeration
- Unit coolers
Establishing the Right System for Your Home or Business
Simply put, the best setups are those that use the least amount of electricity. This is good both for the environment and for your wallet. A good system will give you many years of dependable performance, and the installer will correctly size the system for your home or office to ensure the system is not working overtime to meet your needs.
A “good” system is defined as one that is:
- Low maintenance
When a system satisfies all these requirements, you know the manufacturer has tested the system and verified that it meets the industry standards to give you the best performance possible.
Ensuring Your System is Properly Matched
Ensuring your system is properly matched is key to properly enjoying AHRC-certified products. For example, if you have one product that is AHRI-certified, and you pair it up with another product that is not, you are not maximizing the efficiency of your system.
The best way to tell if your system is properly matched is to ask the installer for the AHRI reference number. You can also obtain what is called an “AHRI Certificate of Certified Product Performance.” If you’re setting up a central air system, for example, you can compare the reference number to the certificate to ensure that the system has been matched by the AHRI.
And with some setups, you may even be able to secure a rebate from either your utility company or the city or town officials by furnishing the certificate as proof of your energy-efficient setup!
