The Air-Conditioning, Heating and Refrigeration Institute (AHRI), who describe themselves as the “folks who keep you cool in the summer and warm in the winter, and who keep your showers hot and your drinks cold,” hosted a reception on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C., on Monday.

Mitsubishi Electric’s own Paul Doppel, senior director, industry and government relations, and Jay Perkins, senior government affairs specialist, were on hand to toast AHRI and its hardworking friends on the Hill. Some Washington-area sports mascots even stopped by to celebrate.

This is the third year that AHRI has hosted this reception right after the August congressional recess begins. The intent is to show appreciation to the congressional staffers and aides who support the HVACR and water heating industry, which today accounts for a whopping one million jobs in the U.S. Cheers to that!
