We Care and IHACI
We Care Plumbing Heating and Air is a committed member of IHACI.
We Care is proud to be a member of IHACI, an independent organization dedicated to regulating HVAC standards in California.
IHACI stands for the “Institute of Heating and Air Conditioning Industries, Inc.” HVAC companies such as We Care rely on IHACI for information on the newest developments in the industry. Because HVAC companies aren’t readily available to help shape laws regarding the HVAC industry’s process and procedures (as we are working for our customers all day long), organizations like IHACI really help set laws and precedents to help regulate our line of work.
IHACI was incorporated in 1948. A nonprofit organization, IHACI serves as a representative for companies in the HVAC industry. IHACI lobbies for consistent law-making in regards to HVAC precedents and procedures, proposes codes for the industry to follow, trains up and coming industry professionals, and notifies heating and cooling professionals of new regulations that California passes in regards to HVAC. IHACI also offers training courses to develop and improve the skills of current HVAC technicians as well.
Part of IHACI’s job is to ensure that accredited HVAC companies are serving you. There are many “companies” out there that will market themselves as HVAC professionals, when really they aren’t licensed to work on HVAC units at all. Selling secondhand HVAC units is also a growing problem in California. IHACI is taking steps to prevent customers from getting scammed.
Finally, IHACI is vital is monitoring how well California is doing in terms of energy saving. The United States is attempting to cut back on energy usage in compliance with standards set by the EPA. HVAC companies are heavily involved in this, as a good portion of energy used in any season comes from heating or cooling your home. IHACI monitors California’s energy usage and takes initiative to propose standards to the government to set for the HVAC industry to save more energy.
Organizations like IHACI make our job easier, so we can do better and work harder for our customers. You know you can trust We Care Plumbing Heating and Air because we are a certified IHACI member!
