Contractor Training Opportunities

Realize a competitive edge for your business and increase customer satisfaction

What is the AC Check Program?

Airflow and Charge (AC) Check is a testing procedure that verifies that central air conditioning and heat pump 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 this testing procedure 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.
