While there is currently no ENERGY STAR Partner designation for HVAC contractors, there are multiple ways for them to get involved with ENERGY STAR.
If available in their area, contractors can participate in a local Home Performance with ENERGY STAR program, which promotes a comprehensive energy efficiency approach to existing homes. Participation in this program allows contractors to utilize unique marketing tools and resources to promote their services. Contractors should contact regional sponsors in their area for more information on how to participate. Learn more.
Additionally, ENERGY STAR provides educational and marketing materials to help contractors explain the benefits of recommended practices. Learn more.
The ENERGY STAR Verified HVAC Installation (ESVI) program offers HVAC companies a way to distinguish themselves by offering customers an ESVI Certificate that gives homeowners the peace of mind that their new HVAC system has been verified to meet quality installation standards. ESVI guidelines are based on the Air Conditioning Contractors of America's (ACCA) HVAC Quality Installation Standards and ensures that new HVAC equipment is correctly sized and installed properly.

HVAC contractors may also want to become credentialed through an EPA recognized HVAC Quality Installation Training and Oversight Organization. Only credentialed HVAC contractors can install HVAC equipment in ENERGY STAR Certified New Homes. HVAC contractors should contact a recognized organization for information on the credentialing process. Learn more.
