Prepare your HVAC/R equipment for market with testing and certification from one of the most trusted names in the business

Did You Know?

  • Testing is showing more and more that eco-friendly HVAC units perform better mechanically and last longer than older traditional models.
  • Sustainable buildings are becoming less costly to maintain, which is expected to lead to an increased demand for energy efficient certified equipment.

The demands placed on heating, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration (HVAC/R) systems are constant and strenuous. Customers expect their HVAC/R equipment to run safely, reliably, and efficiently for many years beyond purchase and with minimal maintenance. Brand perception and reliability are crucial factors in the purchasing decision, and customers are actively searching for assurance that they are making the right decision.

CSA Group plays a part in delivering that assurance by conducting the testing and certification needed to meet market requirements—and providing a mark that customers equate with quality. Through our multiple testing laboratories located around the world, we can offer extensive services including certification for North American markets, certification for global markets, and functional safety evaluations. In fact, we are one of the largest certifiers of gas controls for U.S. and Canadian markets as well as a leading provider of testing to the IEC
60730 safety standard for household appliances. In addition, as the world becomes more connected and HVAC/R systems become part of the “smart home” ecosystem, cybersecurity becomes more important. We can provide thorough cybersecurity testing for added peace-of-mind.
