AHRI has issued AHRI certificate to Gree Photovoltaic Centrifugal Chiller and Low-temperature Heating VRF. It indicates that the performance of Gree products is highly recognized by AHRI, and Gree products get the “passport” for North American market.
AHRI is one of the most authorized certificate organization in the world. AHRI certificate is a kind of product energy efficiency certification system for HVAC&R industry in North America. Moreover, AHRI represents the “threshold” and “benchmark” for air conditioners entering into North American Market.
