As an accredited standards developing organization through the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and Standards Council of Canada (SCC), AHRI is required to make all proposed standards available for public review. Comments are invited for the following Public Review Drafts during the listed comment period.

To review a proposed American National Standard, or a proposed Joint National Standard, please download a copy using the link(s) below. To submit any comments to AHRI, please send them to AHRI_Standards@ahrinet.org.


Currently there are no proposed standards. Proposed standards will be listed below when they become available. Please check this page for updates.

Proposed Joint Canada-US National Standards
AHRI Standard 210-240 (2023) Performance Rating of Unitary Air conditioning and Air source Heat Pump Equipment

Designation:
AHRI Standard 210-240 (2023) Performance Rating of Unitary Air conditioning and Air source Heat Pump Equipment

Scope:
This standard applies to factory-made Unitary Air-conditioners and Unitary Air-source Heat Pumps with capacities less than 65,000 Btu/h as defined in Section 3 of this standard.

Public Review Start Date: 06/26/2020

Public Review End Date: 08/10/2020

Note:
This standard supersedes AHRI Standard 210/240-2017 with Addendum 1

AHRI 210/240-2023, first published in May 2020, establishes a method to rate residential central air conditioners and heat pumps consistent with the test procedure codified in 10 CFR part 430, subpart B, appendix M1. The energy efficiency metrics, expressed in terms of Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER2), Energy Efficiency Ratio (EER2), and Heating Seasonal Performance Factor (HSPF2), are required for representations coincident with the compliance date of the new efficiency standards in the United States starting on January 1, 2023.

BSR/AHRI 540: (I-P and SI/2020) Performance Rating of Positive Displacement Refrigerant Compressors and Compressor Units

Designation:
BSR/AHRI 540: (I-P and SI/2020) Performance Rating of Positive Displacement Refrigerant Compressors and Compressor Units

Scope:
This standard applies to positive displacement Compressors and their presentation of performance in heating, ventilation, air-conditioning, and refrigeration applications. The manufacturer is solely responsible for the determination of values to be used in published product information. This standard stipulates the minimum amount of information to be provided and suggests a method to be used to verify the accuracy of that information.
