Carrier Becomes Host Sponsor of 2013 ACI National Home Performance Conference
Pittsburgh, PA, November 8, 2012—ACI (Affordable Comfort, Inc.) announced today that Carrier will serve as a host sponsor for the 2013 National Home Performance Conference in Denver, CO April 30-May 3. This is the first time in ACI’s 26-year history that the organization will have an international manufacturer as the host sponsor for an event.
“Carrier leads the way in heating and cooling, and their products are key components to home performance and weatherization,” said Amy Fazio, Chief Executive Officer of ACI. “Their commitment to ACI and the National Home Performance Conference shows that this industry continues to grow.”
The home performance and weatherization industry creates solutions for the comfort, health, and durability of residential buildings by exploring how buildings use energy and how building materials and appliances affect energy efficiency, air circulation, and moisture. Homeowners seek solutions to enhance comfort, lower energy costs, and utilize sustainable resources; weatherization assistance programs help low-income households improve comfort and lower utility bills through renovations that are funded by community action agencies, non-profit groups, or local governments.
ACI’s National Home Performance Conference is an annual event attracting members of all sectors of the home performance and weatherization industry—contractors, building analysts, utilities, government, and more—for a comprehensive educational agenda, workshops, networking, and the industry’s largest trade show. The 2013 event will take place at the Sheraton Denver Downtown Hotel, and registration is now open at www.affordablecomfort.org/national2013.
