April 1, 2004: ARI Publishes Standard For Heat Pump Pool Heaters

ARLINGTON, Va. - ARI Standard 1160-2004, "Performance Rating of Heat Pump Pool Heaters," a new standard from the Air-Conditioning and Refrigeration Institute (ARI), has been published.

Standard 1160-2004 establishes for heat pump pool heaters: definitions; classifications; test requirements; rating requirements; minimum data requirements for published ratings; operating requirements; marking and nameplate data; and conformance conditions. This standard applies to the rating and testing of complete factory-made heat pump pool heaters.

ARI standards establish rating criteria and procedures for measuring and certifying product performance. In this way, products are rated on a uniform basis, so that buyers and users can properly make selections for specific applications.

Standard 1160-2004 was developed by ARI's Heat Pump Pool and Spa Heaters Product Section, one of the association's newer sections, approved for membership by the board of directors in November 2002.

The standard is available for free download at www.ari.org. Paper copies are available by ordering through ARI's online bookstore.
