MOUNT LAUREL, N.J. — The National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA) is preparing for its 24th annual Conference and Exposition, which will take place March 15-18 in New Orleans.

Headlining the proceedings will be the unveiling of ACR, the standard which will be released to HVAC industry professionals for the first time at the conference.

The revised standard has been designed to reflect the most current industry information and best practices of HVAC inspection, cleaning, and maintenance.

NADCA also will feature several training opportunities at the event, including the Air Systems Cleaning Specialist (ASCS) certification exam, a requirement for all NADCA member companies.

“The ASCS certification has expanded to test skills necessary for both HVAC cleaning and microbial remediation with an HVAC system,” said Matt Mongiello, president of NADCA. “At this year’s meeting, new professionals can sit for the exam and obtain their ASCS certification for the first time, and seasoned pros can earn the necessary continuing-education credits for maintaining their certification.”

In addition, other sessions include the certified ventilation inspector certification training course, and problems and solutions to moisture inside HVAC systems.
