Efficiency: It’s All In the Installation

February 3_NIST Quality HVAC Report ImageA recent National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) report proves that HVAC equipment requires a quality installation (QI) in order to perform at its rated efficiency. The report, “Sensitivity Analysis of Installation Faults on Heat Pump Performance,” shows design and installation deficiencies contribute directly to a rise in energy consumption.

The report is based on a three-year study that focused on how the building, equipment and climate affect HVAC performance. The following installation faults were found to have the largest potential impact on efficiency:

  • Duct leakage
  • Low indoor airflow
  • Refrigerant undercharge or overcharge
  • Oversized equipment with undersized ductwork
  • If two or more simultaneous faults occur, the loss of efficiency and amount of energy consumption risk amplification

A QI requires high-efficiency products, correct design, proper installation and accurate field measurements. To help ensure these components are met, the ANSI/ACCA 5 QI Standard specifies what to measure, how to measure and the measurement tolerances necessary for unitary residential and commercial HVAC systems.

We recognized that a successful, sustainable installation not only requires a high-performing product but top-notch service as well, which is why we created the Diamond Dealer™ program more than 10 years ago. This elite group is the most extensive, highly-qualified contractor network in the industry today. Through demanding certification and continuous education, our Diamond Contractors™ ensure that our energy-efficient products perform at their industry-leading efficiencies.

TV Star Shares Stories at Diamond Contractor™ Conferences

Richard Trethewey, the famed plumbing and heating expert for “This Old House” programming since 1979, was a special guest speaker at one of our Diamond Contractor™ Conferences held in Atlanta last week.

Richard TretheweyMore than 300 Diamond Contractors attended one of the two back-to-back two-day events that featured presentations from Mike Cappuccio (“Are You Making All You Can Make Selling Ductless?”) and Weldon Long (“The Power of Consistency – Rock your Business –Rock your Life”), among others.

Trethewey shared his experiences as an HVAC contractor over the years as well as some humorous HVAC stories from his projects on “This Old House.”

In addition to his role on the popular home improvement television program, Trethewey consults on residential plumbing and heating projects throughout the country, with current projects in Massachusetts, New Mexico and Hawaii.

Listening to Tretheway’s storytelling, it’s evident that his outlook on the industry hasn’t dulled over the past 30 years. In a recent interview with This Old House magazine, Trethewey shared “the HVAC innovation I’m most excited about is electric heat pump INVERTER technology. Traditional units are either 100 percent on or off. These cold-weather heat pumps use sensors to vary compressor speed based on need.”

Not only is Tretheway a long-time advocate of Mitsubishi Electric systems, but he also shares our enthusiasm for achieving maximum comfort using minimal energy. We couldn’t be happier to have him as a part of the conference’s events.

Trethewey is scheduled to speak at the upcoming conference in Las Vegas on Oct. 26-28. Click here for more information about the conference or to see if you are eligible to attend. To learn more about becoming a Diamond Contractor, talk with your local distributor.

As part of a robust new initiative to support the development of our contractors’ businesses, we’re partnering with New York Times best-selling author and HVAC sales expert Weldon Long to bring an exciting educational opportunity to our Diamond Contractors.

Weldon Long

The In-Home Selling Seminar Program kicked off this week with its first two-day event in Boston. Long led the seminar, which aimed to accomplish the following:

  • Create the proper mindset necessary to excel in Mitsubishi Electric ductless sales and business.
  • Investigate homeowners’ comfort and efficiency problems and gain their permission to recommend Mitsubishi Electric ductless home comfort solutions.

Long is the perfect spokesperson for this seminar because he is unique familiarity with the HVAC sales process. In 2003, he walked out of prison and built a residential HVAC company worth $0 to $20,000,000 in just 60 months. In 2009, his company was selected by Inc. Magazine as one of “America’s Fastest Growing Small Businesses.” Weldon is here to share the secrets to his success.

The seminar will also take place in the coming months in Philadelphia, New York City and Buffalo. To learn more about the In-Home Selling Seminar Program, contact your Business Unit Administrator or Mitsubishi Electric sales representative.
