The AHRI (Air Conditioning, Heating and Refrigeration Institute) Product Performance Certification Program is a voluntary program, administered and governed by AHRI, which ensures that various types of heating, ventilation, air conditioning, refrigeration and water heating products perform according to manufacturers’ published claims.
Products that are certified through the AHRI Product Performance Certification Program are continuously tested by an Independent Third-party Laboratory to determine the product’s ability to conform to product rating standards or specifications.
When evaluating the performance of our ice equipment on behalf of our customers, we look at three primary metrics:
AHRI/Maximum Production: The amount of ice produced by the machine under ideal conditions – which are defined by the AHRI as 70 degree ambient air and 50 degree inlet water temperatures.
AHRI/Standard Production: The ice cube production by the machine under typical operating conditions – which are defined by the AHRI as 90 degree ambient air and 70 degree inlet water temperatures.
Total Production Cost: The sum total of the electricity, water, and subscription fees associated with running the equipment provided by Easy Ice under Standard Production conditions. Electricity costs are calculated using a rate of $0.15 per KWH. Water costs are calculated using a rate of $1.75 per 1,000 gallons. This should be the 100% total cost of operating the equipment before tax.
