The Air-Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute (AHRI) is the trade association representing manufacturers of HVACR and water heating equipment within the global industry.

AHRI’s 300+ member companies manufacture quality, efficient, and innovative residential and commercial

air conditioning, space heating, water heating, and commercial refrigeration equipment and components for sale

in North America and around the world, and account for more than 90 percent of HVACR and water heating

residential and commercial equipment manufactured and sold in North America.


AHRI advocates on behalf of its members at all levels of government, working to ensure that members’ interests are included in final drafts of legislation. We also have a certification program that is relied heavily upon by regulators for accurate and unbiased evaluation of heating, water heating, ventilation, air conditioning, and commercial refrigeration equipment. Lastly, AHRI develops industry-recognized performance standards for industry equipment. These three tiers are at AHRI’s core.

Aside from these three tiers, AHRI is viewed as a resource for industry shipment data, education and workforce information, and research. AHRI is an industry powerhouse, providing our members with one industry voice, both domestically and abroad.
