State Advocacy

State legislatures continue to play a critical role in the development of policy affecting the HVACR and water heating industry. The Government Relations staff at AHRI works year-round to engage on a multitude of state legislative topics, including energy efficiency, renewable energy, air quality and greenhouse gases, warranty changes, and building codes updates.

AHRI’s Government Relations staff works with the State Government Relations Committee to set legislative priorities at the state level each year that drive the association’s stance and strategy on state legislation. AHRI builds relationships with state officials, testifies before legislative committees, and collaborates with other industries, putting it at the forefront of policy deliberations in state capitols. We are committed to combining environmental stewardship with protecting the priorities of our members. See AHRI's 2023 State Legislative Priorities here.
