The Air-Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute (AHRI) today announced the launch of its upgraded Directory of Certified Product Performance, a real-time online directory that includes more than 7.2 million listings of all AHRI Certified® products. "AHRI's online directory was more than ten years old, and in need of an upgrade to support expanding reporting requirements as regulators at the federal, state, and local levels increasingly relied upon AHRI for accurate and unbiased data on equipment performance," said AHRI President and CEO Stephen Yurek. "The directory that went live today was built from the ground up -- with significant input from participants and end users -- to support our needs for years to come." The new directory features simplified searches, improved security, multilingual support, and mobile access. These improvements address concerns reported by all types of users of the directory, including consumers, contractors, and manufacturers. "We conducted focus group meetings with directory users, and engaged with our certification program participants throughout this process to ensure our upgraded directory offers our 3.7 million annual users a smooth and informative experience," said Yurek.
