Jan. 25, 2013: BPI Seeks Volunteers to Serve on HVAC Quality Maintenance Certification Committee

MALTA, N.Y. — The Building Performance Institute Inc. (BPI) is seeking volunteers to serve on a scheme committee for its Whole House HVAC Quality Maintenance certification program. All committee members will earn up to 12 BPI CEUs for their participation on the scheme committee. The committee will prepare a certification scheme that will guide the development of test questions for the Whole House HVAC Quality Maintenance certification.

The BPI Certification Management Board (CMB) determined a need for a certification directly related to the maintenance and upkeep of installed residential HVAC systems when contractors are performing an HVAC clean and tune or are addressing the performance of a home during a whole house energy retrofit. This certification is designed to ensure that a candidate involved in an HVAC clean and tune or a whole house energy retrofit has successfully demonstrated the minimum tasks to be performed for identifying energy, health and safety, and durability issues in the home. This includes inspecting, testing, and measuring electrical components, controls, mechanical, venting, air distribution, and piping systems of residential HVAC systems in accordance with the Air Conditioning Contractors of America’s ANSI/ACCA Standard 4: Maintenance of Residential HVAC Systems.

The scheme committee will also focus on the requirements for the candidate to demonstrate the knowledge, skills, and abilities to provide recommended corrective actions to remedy identified issues, including cleaning, adjusting, and/or replacing equipment and components of HVAC systems.

The following categories of volunteers are needed: building scientists, home performance and HVAC contractors, program implementers, manufacturers/distributors, and general interest persons.

Those interested should submit their application (found at www.bpi.org) no later than Feb. 15.
