HVAC Quality Assured Program Participation
On December 10, 2012, Preferred Air Conditioning & Mechanical was recognized by the Air Conditioning Contractors of America (ACCA) as a participant in the Quality Assured (QA) Program. This program recognizes professional heating ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) companies that install heating and cooling systems in support of the Energy Star Certified New Homes Program. Energy Star version 3.0 requires that HVAC systems be installed to the ANSI/ACCA 5 Quality Installation (QI) Standard. Only QA contractors are authorized to submit proposals for new homes intended for Energy Star qualification.
Heating and air conditioning systems installed by Preferred Air Conditioning & Mechanical for Energy Star new homes are validated by specially-trained Raters from the Residential Energy Services Network (RESNET). This will substantiate that the heating and air conditioning system meets the industry installation standard. Preferred Air Conditioning and Mechanical has agreed to implement business practices to consistently achieve the level of workmanship required by the QI Standard. In addition, our company employs North American Technician Excellence (NATE) certified technicians.
“The efficiency gains from heating and cooling equipment are ultimately dependent on the installing HVAC professional,” said Jon Passe, Acting Manager for Energy Star’s Residential Branch. “When developing the new Energy Star for Homes guidelines, we believed it was critical that contractors installing systems in these high-performing homes be able to demonstrate that they have the knowledge, skills, and company policies to effectively deliver quality installed systems. The QA Program allows contractors to show that they can get the job done right and provide buyers of Energy Star qualified homes with comfort, efficiency, and savings.”
