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.

RBI Solar - Dahlia Has You Covered

What if you could maximize the Ground Coverage Ratio (GCR) on your next project and not have to worry about the complicated variables that come with a tracker system? With a low tilt and clearance design, Dahlia® has the highest GCR of any fixed-tilt system in the marketplace. The system is available in three tilt options (7.5, 10 and 12.5 degrees) and designed to accommodate any sized PV module. The lightweight system is engineered with fewer components, several of which are shipped to job sites pre-assembled. This design feature reduces freight costs and rapidly trims the amount of on-site installation time required to complete construction. Maximizing PV coverage on a site can lead to an increase of production, which creates greater financial return for project owners. Over 100 MW of Dahlia® projects have been deployed across the United States, in regions of variable snow and wind loads. How much can Dahlia® cover and save you on your next project?
