The Energy Conservatory (TEC) Announces New Partnership with National Comfort Institute (NCI)

The Energy Conservatory (TEC) and National Comfort Institute (NCI) are partnering to provide field training on HVAC air flow and pressure measurement equipment and diagnostic process intended for the HVAC and Building Performance industries.  This partnership combines the strengths of TEC (Industry-leading air pressure & flow measurement products) with the strengths of NCI (Industry leading training focused on driving improved performance and better business for HVAC Contractors).

“We are excited to be partnering with NCI”, says Steve Rogers, President of TEC (The Energy Conservatory). “They built their reputation by providing a structured process for delivering High-Performance HVAC systems, with a focus on air-side analysis. Our partnership enhances the process with the right set of measurement tools to make it easier and faster. Key among them is the new Digital TrueFlow grid and DG-8 micromanometer focused on residential HVAC air flow.  By working closely together, NCI and TEC are delivering not only a simpler approach and more confidence in the analysis – we are also providing reports to help contractors justify the work and get paid to do the right job to solve occupants comfort issues.”

“National Comfort Institute is always on the lookout for superior test instruments for our members and students,” says NCI President and CEO Dominick Guarino. “TEC’s Digital TrueFlow kits are among those. Of course, NCI supports all The Energy Conservatory’s testing products.  “Furthermore, we are excited to be part of this partnership because of Energy Conservatory’s recognition and support of our advanced HVAC training.”

TEC will join the NCI team in Branson, MO, as part of the NCI High-Performance HVAC Summit 2023.
