Power Vac America attends Two Great Conferences

NADCA – 19th Annual Meeting

The first of March we found ourselves in San Diego for the National Air Duct Cleaners Association’s (NADCA)19th Annual Meeting and Exposition.  The weather was great and so was the conference.  The annual meeting included several “CEC Training” sessions and the opportunity to discuss tips, techniques, and tools with other duct cleaners around the world.

The CEC training courses included:

  • Tips & Techniques:  Air Handler Refurbishment – This included a detailed presentation on the application of Pancrete (drain pan restoration) and re-insulating the interior of air handler units with closed cell insulation.  This are both services that we provide, but still learned some time saving and safety tips
  • Duct Leakage:  The IAQ Connection – Even though we are not currently offering Blow Door and Duct Blaster testing, this presentation pointed out some of the obvious things to look for and be aware of dealing with pressures in a house.
  • Coating Applications in HVAC Systems – We could have presented this class, but again, I came away with some good ideas from this class.

NADCA provided a CD with the Power Points Presentations for these three courses.  Upon arriving back in Houston, we spend an entire day going through the presentation with the entire staff.  Needless to say, all of the good tips and ideas coming from the presentations have been incorporated into our process.

We are committed to the highest level of professional quality, maintaining and developing industry standards, and continuing technical and safety training.  These types of programs provided by NADCA helps us achieve our goals.   

And last but not least, Power Vac America received the NADCA safety award for another year.

TAPPA 2008 – Austin

At the end of April we were in Austin for the Texas Association of Physical Plant Administrators (TAPPA) conference.
