NEW YORK - A year after Ferris State University (FSU) and HVAC Excellence agreed to work together to address “green” education, Doug Zentz, a professor at the Big Rapids, Mich., school, informed members of the trade press about the extent of the progress of the working agreement during a press conference held Wednesday at the 2008 AHR Expo in New York City.

Zentz noted that the first section of the program resulting from the partnership is “Green Mechanical Awareness,” which he said was pilot tested at the United Association’s (UA’s) annual instructors workshop and through workforce development in Louisiana. It was also agreed upon to develop additional technical training modules covering an array of green mechanical issues. The first technical module, “Combustion Analysis,” has been completed and covers the maximization of furnace and boiler energy efficiency.

At the same news conference, Uponor, formally known as Wirsbo, announced it has joined the Green Mechanical Council (GMC). Uponor is a supplier of plumbing and heating systems for residential and commercial buildings.

Also at this press conference, Fieldpiece announced a partnership with HVAC Excellence. The manufacturer of instruments for the HVACR industry set up special pricing for its new HVAC Guide tester, introduced at the 2008 expo.
