ARLINGTON, Va. - The Air Conditioning Contractors of America (ACCA) and the Residential Energy Service Network (RESNET) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to work together in promoting home energy performance in the U.S.

“We believe this partnership with RESNET will help position HVAC contractors for changing standards and pending legislation that may require residential energy audits,” said ACCA president and CEO Paul T. Stalknecht.

RESNET executive director Steve Baden added, “It is exciting to develop new partnerships with contractors to help improve efficiency performance in the homes market. With the current uncertainties in Washington, it is timely to develop new private-sector alliances.”

Some components of the MOU include the following: supporting the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in its implementation of the Energy Star Qualified New Homes Program (Version 3; aimed at homebuilders) and linking HVAC contractors and energy raters to undertake comprehensive home retrofits.
