HVI is Putting the V Back in HVAC at Comfortech 2007


The Home Ventilating Institute (HVI) has partnered with the 2007 HVAC Comfortech Seminar & Showcase, the premier residential and light commercial heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) forum, to produce a series of educational seminars focused on ventilation and indoor air quality. "HVI's goal is to increase awareness of ventilation as the primary solution to indoor air quality problems through seminars and business opportunity presentations," said HVI Chairman Ola Wettergren, President, Fantech. "This is clearly the best opportunity HVI and its members have ever had to advance the value of residential ventilation for healthier living." Comfortech is scheduled for Wednesday, September 26 through Saturday, September 29, 2007 at America's Center in St. Louis, Missouri.

HVI will be sponsoring a seminar track "Putting the 'V' Back in HVAC" on Thursday and Friday, September 27-28. Seminars include four educational and informational sessions on ventilation issues. Ventilation: The Best Solution to Improve Indoor Air Quality will explain the key role that proper ventilation plays in controlling indoor air quality and discuss how HVAC contractors can increase customer satisfaction and business opportunities with ventilation products. Building Codes, Ventilation Rates & Certified Ventilation Performance will help HVAC professionals understand building and energy codes and requirements and learn the value of ventilation products that have been rated for airflow, sound, and energy performance. The Key to Ventilation Solutions that Work explains the fundamentals of how to properly design and install ventilation products and provides information on ventilation education and training opportunities for HVAC professionals and others. The Best Solution to Improve Indoor Air Quality is a panel discussion including installing contractors, ventilation experts, and builders who will discuss how they have added value and increased sales through ventilation sales. The interactive session will help participants learn from experienced professionals about how to identify ventilation opportunities and select the most appropriate equipment to solve indoor air quality problems.
