Industry Capitol Hill Event Features HVACR Hot Water Equipment Cake

Last night ACCA, along with our partners AHRI, HARDI, NATE, and PHCC, hosted a reception in the Rayburn House Office Building to introduce members of Congress and staff to our industry and its products.

The featured attraction was a 250 pound cake depicting heating, ventilation, air condition, refrigeration, and hot water equipment from Carlo’s Bakery in Hoboken, New Jersey, from the TLC television show “Cake Boss.” The cake was constructed to look like a residential home and a commercial building with one wall exposed. Throughout and on top of the buildings you could see the products manufactured, distributed and installed by the host organizations. And all of it was edible.

Residential and Commercial buildings cake featuring the products of the HVACR and hot water industries.

The bakers fabricated  little fondant hot water heaters, radiators, air handlers, a refrigerated cooler, condensing units, rooftop units, a pool heater, and chiller. There was even a contractor and a box truck.

The cake displayed edible condensing units and mini-split systems.

The purpose of the reception was to highlight our industry’s contribution to the overall economy. Not many on Capitol Hill realize that the HVACR and hot water industries employ more than 1 million workers from the manufacturers to the distributors to the contractors.  In all, more than 350 members and staff came by to see the cake and learn about the work our organization’s members perform to help homeowners and building owners lower their energy bills with highly efficient equipment and reduce the consumption of fossil fuels, all  creating healthy indoor environments.

Industry association leaders prepare to cut the cake. From left: Paul Stalknecht, ACCA president & CEO; Talbot Gee, HARDI Executive Vice President; Steve Heidler, PHCC board member; Steve Yurek, AHRI president & CEO; and Peter Schwartz, NATE president & CEO.



New Technologies Always Meet Resistance

Some of you may, like me, may have vague recollections of the 80s. This was when I was much younger (and knew a whole lot more than I do now) and when I became involved in the design of geothermal heat pump equipment.

When I first started designing and testing water source heat pump equipment the product wasn’t terribly old (perhaps 10-15 years) by industry standards, but it was still a mystery to many. It didn’t matter whether a cooling tower and boiler were used to provide the heat rejection or addition or we were using some form a ground coupled heat exchange (pond, vertical open well, vertical closed loop, or horizontal closed loop), engineers and many building owners found these systems to be almost incomprehensible. They simply couldn’t wrap their mind around how you could heat and cool different spaces simultaneously. It was just mind boggling.

I remember many a conversation with professional engineers debating the pros and cons of water source systems versus variable air volume, 2 pipe, 4 pipe, etc. There was always some perceived drawback to these systems. Most of these discussions centered around traditional water source systems that used cooling towers and boilers. Heaven forbid we get into discussions about geothermal systems! What use the earth to add and subtract heat from the system? Unheard of! Ludicrous! Simply won’t work! You name, we heard it and then some.

Fast forward a couple of decades and here we are today with tax credits being offered to install geothermal systems. Why? Well because they offer operating performance that is more sustainable and better than many of the other systems engineers have traditionally designed. Building Owners, operating a variety of building types have achieved substantial operating savings with geothermal systems. Yet there is more to be learned and achieved.

Over the course of time a variety of mechanisms have been used to transfer energy to and from the earth for geothermal systems. As with most technologies we settle on a few “tried and true” approaches and over time some alternative approaches are left behind, even if they are potentially beneficial. For geothermal systems the traditional approach has been to use water (with antifreeze of some type) circulated through tubing buried with the earth to transfer energy. But, there have been a daring few who have worked directly with refrigerant and copper as the heat transfer fluid and material to transfer this energy.

As with any system approach there have been successes and failures, and there are those who have successfully figured out how to properly implement what are called direct expansion geothermal systems. These systems offer additional benefits not offered by “traditional” water based geothermal systems in that at a minimum one energy transfer stage is eliminated. As compared to a traditional geothermal system where we are transferring energy from refrigerant to water and then water to earth we have eliminated this process and moved directly to refrigerant to earth energy transfer. This improves operating efficiency by eliminating the energy used by the pump circulating water to the well field.

So, here I am today, almost 30 years since I designed my first geothermal system working with systems that are directly coupled to the earth using refrigerant and copper, helping our customers save more energy and having to, once again, explain the benefits of a “new” technology to them.

Some things stay the same and never change.

If you want to learn more about new geothermal technologies, Ellis will be presenting a learning lab entitled: “Shrinking the Geothermal Footprint” on October 19 during the brand new Geothermal Contracting Roundtable at the Loews Vanderbilt Hotel in Nashville, Tenn.



Find Incentives in your Area

We’re excited to announce a new feature on the ACCA website that is designed to help contractors find energy efficiency incentives for their customers. The Database of State Incentives for Renewables and Efficiency (DSIRE) is an ongoing project of North Carolina State University and the Interstate Renewable Energy Council.  DSIRE serves as a comprehensive source of information on all state, local, utility, and federal incentives and policies that promote renewable energy and energy efficiency. You can find up-to-date information on everything from federal tax credits for residential homeowners to state and local incentives for commercial buildings.

Unlike the standard DSIRE site you may be familiar with, ours has been modified to be HVAC specific and offer additional search categories.  Find the incentives in your area by searching by zip code, sector, or technology.

Just another way ACCA is working for you!



New Website Feature Helps Contractors and Consumers Find Energy Efficiency Incentives

The Air Conditioning Contractors of America (ACCA), the nation’s largest association of indoor environmental systems professionals, is excited to announce a new HVACR specific Database of State Incentives for Renewables and Efficiency (DSIRE) webpage as part of www.acca.org.

The new DSIRE tool can be found at www.acca.org/consumer/dsire, and it allows contractors and consumers to locate HVACR energy efficiency incentives in their local area. Unlike the National DSIRE website, which is ongoing project of North Carolina State University and the Interstate Renewable Energy Council, ACCA’s DSIRE tool allows users to search for incentives by zip code, sector, or technology.

“This new HVACR specific DSIRE tool is a great way for ACCA to help its members and their consumers find available energy efficiency incentives in their area without a lot of effort,” said Paul T. Stalknecht, ACCA president and CEO. “While energy efficiency upgrades save money over time, the initial cost can make some customers nervous, so having a list of incentives available will help contractors assist their customers make the right decision and save money now and in the future.”

Contractors and consumers can use the ACCA’s HVACR DSIRE tool by going to www.acca.org/consumer/dsire. For more information on this new feature, email Emily Rogers at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .



Around the States Contactor Protection and Efforts to Level the Playing Field

Pennsylvania: Putting Liability in its Proper Place

Pennsylvania State Senator Lisa M. Boscola introduced a bill in Harrisburg that would take steps to protect HVAC contractors from claims related to mold or mold damage.  SB 647 would make HVAC contractors, unless otherwise agreed in writing, not liable for personal injuries, property damage or other damages, losses or claims related to mold or mold damage.  The protections do not apply to personal injuries, property damage or other losses, or in cases where the mold or mold damage was caused by one or more defects in workmanship by a contractor relating to the installation of an HVAC system.

This bill is currently in committee and its passage would be an important step in the right direction for tort reform.

To read a copy of the legislation, click here or contact Senator Boscola the bill’s sponsor.

California Senate Bill 454: Leveling the Playing Field

California Senate bill 454 would put into place new regulations that will help level the playing field for California’s contractors who abide by the state’s permitting rules.  This bill would authorize the states energy commission to establish an administrative process to enforce already existing building energy efficiency standards.   SB 454 would also prohibit public utilities from issuing rebates or incentives for energy efficiency improvements unless the recipient certifies that the improvements/installation has complied with applicable permitting and licensing requirements.

This bill should soon be reaching the Assembly floor.  For more information on the bill visit the California legislature’s page,  or contact the bill sponsor, Senator Pavley .
