Room Air Cleaners
Room air cleaners that are certified through AHAM’s Certification Program have been certified and verified by an independent laboratory, assuring consumers that the product will perform according to the manufacturer’s product claims for suggested room size and the reduction of three common household particulates: tobacco smoke, dust and pollen, commonly referred to as the Clean Air Delivery Rate (CADR)
. These tests determine the unit’s recommended room size and the CADR rates that are listed on the product packaging.
For units that have earned the ENERGY STAR®
designation, AHAM’s energy verification of the unit ensures that the product meets ENERGY STAR®
criteria. AHAM is recognized by the EPA as a Certification Body (CB) and approved to administer verification testing for purposes of the ENERGY STAR program.
The AHAM Verifide Mark can be found on the front of the product packaging of room air cleaners. In addition, AHAM Verifide room air cleaners also have a label with more information on the side of the product packaging. This label contains the AHAM Verifide Mark in the upper-left corner and displays the CADR values for tobacco smoke, dust and pollen. The label also shows the suggested room size for that particular model and will indicate if the unit has undergone energy testing.
