CRT’s Take On NADCA

Last week, we had the pleasure of exhibiting at the 2016 NADCA Annual Meeting, held at the Wigwam Resort in Phoenix, AZ. Many of our clients are NADCA members, so this show is something we look forward to each year.

NADCA has really stepped up their level of professionalism over the past few years! The Wigwam Resort is an extremely beautiful facility, with great food and exceptionally good service. The exhibit hall was split into 2 different rooms, which was different, but not in a bad way. I saw some of the same old vendors, and was delighted to see some new people too! 

I have been exhibiting at this show for at least 15 years, but have never sat in an any of the meetings or classes. For some reason, this year I sat through a few and actually learned quite a bit. One memorable class was, Dryer Vents: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly. I know it sounds boring, but by the end of the class, I was freaked out about my dryer’s ventilation and lint content! Who really thinks about that?!? I’ll tell you one thing: sit through that class and YOU will think about it! Between possible carbon monoxide poisoning killing you in your sleep or lint accumulation starting a fire that can burn down your house, EVERYONE should think about that! 25719665891_cb3b5c3959_z.jpg

NADCA is gaining momentum in getting people trained and certified in duct cleaning and air handler restoration. They are truly concerned about scamming companies, who advertise $49 duct cleaning to homeowners, but then go in and quote hundreds of dollars to fix “air duct problems”, and ultimately only pretend to do the work. It was neat to see that NADCA actually worked with the tv show Inside Edition to set up a house to catch these scamming companies. Check it out here: http://ietv.co/1NvorPI

In September, we will be participating in their Fall Technical Training Conference for the first time. I am very excited about being a part of such a great organization!

Choosing the Best HVAC Company

When your HVAC system goes out, what’s the first thing you do? If you can’t fix it yourself, you find a repairman! But how do you know who to trust? AdvantaClean recently wrote a blog post packed with great info on finding the right company to fix your problem. Their source? Angie’s List.

Check out the post here: “Tips for Hiring the Right HVAC Repair Company.”

What’s on the list? For one, check the company’s licenses. We recommend a NADCA-certified company. We’re members of NADCA ourselves!

Another thing to do? Homework. Look up their reviews online – not just the best ones on their website. Ask if they have references you can call. For more tips, read AdvantaClean’s full article!

Homeowners and business owners: have you ever hired an HVAC company without doing your research? Or did you find a great company by doing your due diligence? What was the result? Tell  us your thoughts in the comments!
