ARI Announces New Certification

September 19, 2002
ARLINGTON, VA — Following three years of development, the Air-Conditioning and Refrigeration Institute (ARI) recently announced the initiation of the Indoor Pool Dehumidifiers Certification Program.

The program, based on ARI Standard 910, “Indoor Pool Dehumidifiers,” developed in 1999 by the Indoor Pool Dehumidifier Product Section, covers factory-made residential, commercial, and industrial pool dehumidifiers.

According to ARI, in its certification programs, the association verifies manufacturers’ certified performance ratings of industry products and laboratory testing. Units, randomly selected, are tested using procedures stipulated in ARI Standard 910 to verify that they meet the manufacturers’ certified published performance ratings. Participation in ARI’s certification programs is voluntary and open to members and non-members of ARI on an equal basis.

“ARI-certified products are sought worldwide because of the integrity of the certification program,” said Reinhold Kittler, chairman of the Indoor Pool Dehumidifiers product section. “Our section’s current activities are aimed at enhancing that position and image for our members and those depending on our ARI-certified equipment.”

An indoor pool dehumidifier provides dehumidification, air filtration, pool water heating, and air-to-air heat recovery.
