An AHRI number, or Air Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute number, serves as a unique identifier for certified heat pump and furnace components that have undergone testing as part of a complete system. This certification process validates the efficiency ratings of specific combinations, which typically involve an outdoor heat pump unit, an indoor heat pump unit, and, in the case of a dual-fuel system, a furnace.

It's essential to note that if any component within your heat pump system changes, the system will receive a different AHRI reference number and potentially different efficiency ratings. The AHRI Certification Program, operating as a third-party entity, conducts rigorous testing to verify the performance ratings of heat pumps and other mechanical systems. Once these performance ratings are confirmed, they are documented in the form of an AHRI certificate, along with the associated AHRI reference number.

Why is an AHRI reference number important? It is a critical requirement when applying for heat pump rebates, particularly those available through programs like the CleanBC Better Homes and Home Renovation Rebate Program. Additionally, your heat pump system's AHRI reference number must be listed on the Qualifying Product List. This number is crucial for rebate programs to verify that you have invested in an energy-efficient and rebate-eligible heat pump system.

To ensure a smooth rebate process, it's advisable to ask your contractor to include the AHRI reference number for your entire heat pump system, which encompasses the indoor unit, outdoor unit, and furnace (if applicable), on your invoice.
