“We are grateful for the strong support and hard work on this bill by several of our member companies, as well as our legislative staff and the many cosponsors in the House and Senate,” said Stephen Yurek, AHRI president and CEO. “This is common sense legislation that will go a long way in helping our member companies as they work to rebuild our economy.”
The bill contains corrections to commercial refrigeration standards, specifically correcting standards for service-over-the-counter commercial refrigerators; it codifies standards for small-duct high-velocity systems into U.S. law; and it makes important technical corrections to laws impacting AHRI members, said the association. The bill also expedites the creation of a uniform efficiency descriptor and accompanying test procedure for water heaters one year from the date of passage.
