MT. VERNON, NY – Ice Air®, the developer and manufacturer of a wide variety of HVAC units, is pleased to announce its participation in the AHRI (Air-Conditioning, Heating & Refrigeration Institute) Room Fan-Coil Air-Conditioners (RFC) Certification Program. As a participant, Ice Air products are tested and certified to the highest industry performance standards and will carry the AHRI certified label.

The program is set up to protect the integrity of the HVAC industry by encouraging performance standards and bringing the use of energy-efficient products to market. For example, it is mandatory for program RFC participants to comply with the provisions of the latest edition of ANSI/AHRI 440, Performance Rating of Room Fan-Coils (Standard).

The AHRI symbol itself represents both Ice Air’s concern and regard for its customers and the environment.

“Ice Air has had a long tradition of providing high quality HVAC products to the construction and real estate management community,” said Mo Siegel, Ice Air’s President/Co-CEO. “When Ice Air and their customers think of the AHRI Certified® brand , the characteristics that come to mind are performance, trust, independence and value. Understanding those characteristics is an important step in helping to convey our value to our customers. We are excited to carry on that tradition with the added AHRI Certified performance mark.”

Similar to Ice Air’s performance objective, AHRI is dedicated to transform the marketplace with programs and products that respect its customers and the environment. Certifying that products perform to industry standards ultimately leads to energy savings, environmental improvement and enhanced quality of life.

“Certification is critical in today’s marketplace,” said Ice Air’s Co-CEO and Chairman, Ric Nadel. “Ultimately AHRI certification guarantees that our customers are getting the performance they require.”

One of those companies is Brothers Supply Corporation, a full line stocking wholesale supplier of parts and equipment specializing in Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) and hard-to-find parts and equipment replacement. “To me it’s was their natural next step,” Michael Esposito, President of Brothers says. “In our experience in the industry, Ice Air is the most forward-thinking manufacturer we deal with. This is why we look at them as our partner serving a variety of markets. This AHRI certification not only shows the quality of the product and dedication to making the best, but an overall indicator of the direction the company is going and the commitment they make to us.”

Tom Glass, Director of Sales and Marketing points out that, “We realize that the HVAC industry especially is concerned with energy efficiency and reliable performance and needs strong members such as Ice Air. AHRI certification gives our customers like Brothers Supply the confidence that our equipment will do what it is designed to do: meet complex specifications and provide users with ultimate comfort and ease of use.”

The AHRI Product Performance Certification Program is a voluntary program, administered and governed by AHRI, which ensures that various types of heating, ventilation, air conditioning, refrigeration, and water heating products perform according to manufacturers’ published claims.

Products that are certified through the AHRI Product Performance Certification Program are continuously tested, at the direction of AHRI, by an independent third-party laboratory, contracted by AHRI, to determine the product’s ability to conform to one or more product rating standards or specifications.
