The AHRI Low-GWP Alternative Refrigerants Evaluation Program (AREP) includes compressor calorimeter testing, system drop-in testing, soft-optimized system testing, and heat transfer testing. All tests other than heat transfer coefficient measurements are expected to be performed at participating companies' laboratories, using their own resources, at their own expense. The Low-GWP AREP program is managed by a technical committee reporting to the AHRI Executive Committee. The AHRI Research Department administers the Low-GWP AREP program, and coordinates and disseminates information and reports among the participating companies and the observers. Representatives of interested organizations should contact AHRI's Research Department for further information. To access the Low-GWP AREP Technical Committee meeting minutes available only to AHRI members, visit our AREP Member Resources.
