Contractor Training OpportunitiesRealize a competitive edge for your business and increase customer satisfaction
What is the HVAC Check Program?
HVAC Check is a 4-hour contractor training that focuses on two testing procedures - Air Flow and Charge Check (AC Check) for central A/C and central heat pumps, and Mini Split Check (MS Check) for single and multi-head mini split heat pumps. These testing procedures verify that central air conditioning, central heat pump and mini-split heat systems are commissioned properly and in good running condition. Systems that are properly commissioned have improved efficiency and create increased comfort and savings for homeowners.
Technicians are trained to perform these testing procedures to ensure proper installation and operation of equipment and systems, which gives your company a real edge on the competition by providing better service to your customers.
