ARLINGTON, Va. - The International Council of Air-Conditioning, Refrigeration, and Heating Manufacturers Associations (ICARHMA) has announced the launch of a newly designed website: The site features a global calendar of HVACR industry events, the Council’s policy statements, press releases, Council member’s contacts, and a members-only center.

ICARHMA is a membership organization comprised of associations representing manufacturers of air conditioning, heating, and refrigeration equipment in Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, Europe, India, Japan, Korea, and the United States. It serves as a forum for the discussion of issues affecting the global industry, including energy efficiency, environmental stewardship, and other timely topics. The Air-Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute (AHRI) serves as the Secretariat.

AHRI’s 300 member companies account for more than 90 percent of the residential and commercial air conditioning, space heating, water heating, and commercial refrigeration equipment manufactured and sold in North America. For more information, visit
