HVAC Excellence Goes Green

HVAC Excellence is adding green certifications to its list of programs.

HVAC Excellence, as a founding member of the Green Mechanical Council, announced that during this year's review of their exams they will add Green Technology and additional energy efficiency questions wherever they may be applicable.


In addition to the review, HVAC Excellence has added "Combustion Analysis" to its Professional Level and Master Specialist certifications. An in depth understanding of the combustion process and the proper adjustments of the fuel/air mixture, will reduce fuel consumption and maximize efficiency.

HVAC Excellence is completing pilot testing of its "High SEER" competency Professional Level certification which is scheduled for general release in the spring.

HVAC Excellence provides two levels of technician certification;

* Professional Level Certification - strenuous written exams in area specific knowledge. (Requires a minimum of two (2) years of verifiable field experience.)

* Master Specialist Certification - allow technicians to demonstrate they can apply their knowledge through area specific rigorous hands-on testing. (Requires a minimum of three (3) years of verifiable field experience and Professional Level certification or equivalent.)

HVAC Excellence reached a new milestone on December 18, 2006 by certifying its 50,000th technician. Now they would like to challenge the industry to reach a new milestone; reduce HVAC energy consumption by 12% within 3 years. Competent contractors and technicians can meet, and possibly exceed this goal.

LG Solar Unveils NeON R with Enhanced Aesthetics and Energy Savings

The NeON R module features "Back Contact" cell technology delivering an entirely black panel that is aesthetically pleasing and energy efficient. The cell's seamless, surface blends perfectly into nearly all rooftop designs while the module's electrodes are positioned on the rear of the cell. Using LG's N-type cell structure, the panels produce 365W of energy, up to 7.3kWp, compared to 5.8kWp of the p-type cell. The module's new design minimizes LID, thereby delivering a longer lifespan and increased energy output.
