Energy Efficiency is Everyone's Business!

Mr. Tav Commins of the California Energy Commission will be conducting a train the trainer presentation on Energy Efficiency Standards for Residential & Non Residential Buildings at the HVAC Excellence National Educators and Trainers Conference March 17 and 18, 2008.

All across the United States, people are being effected by raising energy costs. One of the largest cost to the average consumer, is heating and cooling their home.


States and municipalities are adopting energy efficiency standards for RESIDENTIAL and NON RESIDENTIAL BUILDINGS as they know, a quality installation saves energy and money. The standards nationwide are being modeled after California's Title 24 energy regulations, as they are the model of efficiency through conservation.

Mr. Tav Commins will be conducting a train the trainer presentation on Energy Efficiency Standards for Residential & Non Residential Buildings at the HVAC Excellence National Educators and Trainers Conference March 17 and 18, 2008. This training is geared for HVACR Educators and Trainers who want to learn more about Energy Efficiency Standards for Residential & Non Residential Buildings.

Mr. Tav Commins is a Mechanical Engineer, and the lead staff member on the Title 24 HVAC quality installation measures with the California Energy Commission. He conducts training for; building officials, HVAC contractors and instructors on the State energy codes.
