ACCA Publishes ComforTool

Latest Edition Explains New Codes that Aim to Prevent Refrigerant Huffing

ARLINGTON, Va. — The Air Conditioning Contractors of America (ACCA) published its latest ComforTool for ACCA members to help educate customers.

The newest edition, “Locking Caps Guard Against Huffing,” explains why new codes require locking caps on outdoor air conditioners and heat pumps.

ComforTools are provided to ACCA members at no cost and cover a variety of topics related to HVACR businesses, including design, installation, regulatory issues, business practices, and incentives.

“ACCA ComforTools are one of our most used member benefits, because they are easy for the contractors to use and easy for the customers to understand,” said Paul T. Stalknecht, ACCA president and CEO. “Covering a safety topic such as locking caps is extremely important. Many homeowners may not be aware that huffing is an issue and may think that a locking cap is an unnecessary, additional expense. By educating them about the code requirement, contractors are not only helping to prevent the abuse of refrigerants, but helping the customer save money by not needing to recharge their systems frequently due to the abuse.”
