AHRI Releases First Final Test Reports for Low-GWP Alternative Refrigerants Evaluation Program

The Air-Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute (AHRI) released three final test reports for its Low Global Warming Potential Alternative Refrigerants Evaluation Program (Low-GWP AREP). The reports contain test results of low-GWP refrigerants for residential heat pump, water-cooled chiller and commercial ice machine applications, and also include the refrigerants' compositions.

"Eleven low-GWP refrigerants were tested, and their performance was compared to their respective baseline refrigerants, either R-410A or R-404A," said AHRI President and CEO Stephen Yurek. "This is the first set of many reports that will be published as part of our research program."

Currently, tests are ongoing, but all are expected to be completed by early 2013. Test reports will be released to the public as they are reviewed and approved by the AHRI Low-GWP AREP Technical Committee. Additional reports are expected to be published in mid-December and will be posted online.

Viewers are encouraged to visit the site monthly for the latest reports.
