The ACCA Educational Institute Standards Task Team announced that ANSI has recognized ACCA 12 QH-2011 Existing Homes Evaluation and Performance Improvement standard.

The Air Conditioning Contractors of America Educational Institute Standards Task Team announced that the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) has recognized ACCA 12 QH-2011 Existing Homes Evaluation and Performance Improvement standard.  

ACCA 12 QH-2011 was developed by ACCA in the cooperation with the Residential Energy Services Network (RESNET) and is the first industry-developed nationally recognized standard that establishes how to audit, evaluate, develop a scope of work, perform the work approved by a home owner and test completed work.  

“ACCA is proud to offer the home performance community with the first standard for existing homes that is in line with our other ANSI recognized standards," said Paul T. Stalknecht, ACCA president and CEO. "This new standard provides clear guidelines for how to properly evaluate homes, provide homeowners with appropriate solutions, and then perform the work. And, by requiring third-party verification to ensure that the work was performed correctly, gives more credibility to the contractors who are following the standard and sets them apart.”  

“We were happy to work with ACCA to create this standard for existing homes,” says Steve Baden, executive director of RESNET. “RESNET will use the standard as the foundation for its Energy Smart Contractor designation. Having an ANSI standard for existing homes will make the entire industry stronger as a whole.”  

The ACCA 12 QH-2011 Existing Homes Evaluation and Performance Improvement is available for download at www.acca.org/quality and will be available for purchase soon.
