PORTLAND, Ore. - AirAdvice Inc. appointed Isaac Simpson and Gary Frayn to head the company’s two new business divisions, HomeAdvice™ and BuildingAdvice™. According to the company, it developed the two new divisions in response to both a recognized need for focused, innovative building performance assessment solutions and to meet the challenges faced by the commercial HVAC industry and facilities management professionals.

“Eighteen months ago we launched the first version of our commercial building performance diagnostic tools. Our time in the field has helped us to recognize the differing needs of commercial contractors, building owners, facilities managers, and the residential HVAC contractors we have traditionally served,” said Jim Crowder, CEO, AirAdvice.

“The organization we are announcing today positions us to deliver systems and programs that better address the specific requirements unique to residential and commercial HVAC and building performance professionals. We’re fortunate to already have two very capable leaders within our company that can immediately begin to implement strategies to help all of our customers grow their businesses and enable more comfortable, energy-efficient, and healthy indoor environments.”

Simpson, vice president of contractor services, heads the HomeAdvice division.

“The HomeAdvice focus is on delivering more of what our contractors told us they wanted,” he said. “ We’ve got some exciting new technology and program updates set to launch this fall - it’s a whole new level of home diagnostics developed as a direct result of contractor input and initiative.”

Frayn, AirAdvice vice president of commercial development, leads the BuildingAdvice division.

“The new BuildingAdvice technologies and programs set to launch shortly will put users head and shoulders ahead of their competition,” he said. “Our goal is to make it easy for contractors and building performance professionals to identify, assess, and resolve today’s top building performance concerns including: comfort complaints, high energy costs, sustainability issues, and more.”
