ARLINGTON, Va. — The Air Conditioning Contractors of America (ACCA) and Building Performance Institute Inc. (BPI) jointly announced they will begin exploring opportunities for collaboration following a meeting of organizational leaders Aug. 14.

“While ACCA and BPI are different organizations with different missions, it is clear that both of us share many common goals for improving the efficiency of our country’s buildings,” said Bobby Ring, chairman, ACCA. “We have agreed to spend the next few months identifying ways in which our two organizations might be able to work together to make those goals a reality. On behalf of ACCA, we look forward to productive conversations and meaningful collaboration with BPI.”

ACCA recently signed a memorandum of understanding with RESNET to bring HVAC contractors and home energy raters (HERS) together for home performance.

BPI is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year.

“BPI welcomes this new process and looks forward to a constructive dialogue with ACCA and hopefully more exciting announcements to come,” said David Hepinstall, BPI chairman. “The heart of home performance is the house as a system, and HVAC is the critical component that keeps that heart beating efficiently, safely, and affordably.”

The two parties also recently combined on an effort where those who pass the ACCA Residential HVAC Design for Quality Installation, and receive their certificate, will be eligible for 12.5 BPI continuing education credits toward BPI recertification.
