Happy Hot Summer, I hope! I want to update on a few items about YOUR association. I’ll start with membership growth last year. Last year, we added 40 contractors to our membership. This is a very strong number and came after a lot of work, encouragement and should be recognized as such. However, candidly, we also lost 30 contractors over the course of the year (2013), leaving us with a 10 member (contractor) net. While we need and will continue to work on adding new members to association, it is also important and critical that we retain our current members. We are continuing to explore ways to make your membership more meaningful and more beneficial, and we welcome your ideas, suggestions an constructive criticism. Next, I want to report on the success of the 2014 annual convention and trade show. Please see Joel Reese, Convention Committee Chairman’s article on page 8 & 9 for details; however, please allow me to add my congratulations and appreciation for all who had a “hand” in making this year’s convention the largest and most successful convention yet. The convention and trade show combined is our single largest program both in attendance and in terms of producing revenue for the association’s operating budget. I hope you will mark your calendars now for next year’s meeting, February 26 – 28, 2015. Each year, the leadership works to add new features, programs and benefits. You don’t want to miss out on a couple of days that could positively impact you for the rest of the year.
While we don’t have all of the answers to our industry’s problems, we do have the membership’s best interest “at heart.” We truly exist to promote the industry as a whole -- the whole family! Please join in these efforts and work with us to continue to make this a great venue for all to be involved, and for all to worked together to make our industry better.

Also, I want to encourage you to check out the pictures and recap of this year’s DuctFair. This program has been a popular training opportunity offered by the association every few years. This year our staff worked to have the training program recognized for “continuing education credit” with a number of agencies in order to help increase the value of the program for our members. Credit was available for contractors who needed NATE Certification hours, those who needed BPI hours, continuing education hours for codes officials and inspectors (through LLR), and professional educational hours for the engineers in attendance. When you add these extras to the involvement and sponsorship of the State Energy Office, the Southeastern Power Administration and the many vendors and instructors who gave of their time and resources to teach, you get a tremendous success. Thank you again to all who participated in one way or another.
Lastly, I want to thank the members who take the time to bring their questions and concerns to me and the board of directors and who allow for explanation, dialog and continuing efforts to work together to resolve concerns, complaints, and problems. I believe the association is (like) a family. We may not and will not always agree on everything but in the end we are on the same team working toward the same goals. I appreciate those who recognize that your leadership is comprised of volunteers who may not be perfect but who do care about this industry and efforts to move it forward.

certification is in full swing in 2014. The certification is designed for professionals who are verifying the 2009 IECC that went into effect Jan 1, 2013. The training covers duct pressure testing using a duct blower and building envelope testing using a blower door. These tools must be used for 2009 IECC compliance and are also great sales tools for those of us who are looking to distinguish ourselves in the marketplace. These tools can help us diagnose issues and solve comfort problems for our customers that other companies are unable to solve. Dettraining.com is hosting a list of all professionals who have achieved the SCDET Certification. For those of us who are new to the Duct Blower and Blower door there is a two-day (Module I + Module II) classroom course with lots of hands on time to learn how to setup and operate the equipment. For those of us who are already familiar with the equipment (or for those who feel like time is precious and feel comfortable learning in an on-line environment) there is also a blended course offered where the first day of class (Module I) is offered on-line in small sections that you can complete at your convenience. When you feel comfortable with the material you can join a live Module II class as they are available. If you are already a Building Performance Institute (BPI) Building Analyst or Envelope Professional you can skip Module I and move straight to Module II and challenge the written and field tests after a few hours of review at a discounted rate. Active HERS raters and BPI Heating Professionals or Air Conditioning and Heat Pump Professionals who want to be added to the dettraining.com website need only to challenge the written test.
Duke Energy Progress Utility Member Joel Reese SCE&G
No matter your skill level, when you complete your certification you will feel comfortable performing Blower Door and Duct blaster testing. The SCDET Certification will allow you to offer 2009 IECC compliance testing not just in SC but also in GA, TN, WV, AL, and NC as there is a reciprocal agreement with these states and SC. Module I + II Classroom Training $400 Module I + II Blended Training $300 Module II Only (for BPI certified professionals) $180 Written Test Challenge (For HERS raters and BPI Heating Professionals) $85

The HVAC Industry is Regulated and Licensed by the SC Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulations (commonly referred to as LLR) What is LLR and how does it apply to HVAC? The South Carolina Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulations was created February 1, 1994. This new agency was a combination of the Department of Labor, Office of State Fire Marshal, the S.C. Fire Academy and 38 professional and occupational boards. The Department is separated into three divisions: Division of Fire & Life Safety (SC Fire Academy & Office of the State Fire Marshal); Division of Labor ( OSHA, Elevators & Amusement Rides, Labor Mediation, Wages & Child Labor); Division of Professional & Occupational Licensing ( 41 professional & occupational licensing boards). At LLR, HVAC members are licensed and regulated by either the Contractors Licensing Board (CLB) or the Residential Builders Commission (RBC). The Contractors Licensing Board regulates the practice of general contractors, mechanical contractors, burglar & fire alarm system businesses, and fire protection sprinkler contractors. The Residential Builders Commission (RBC) licenses and regulates residential builders, home inspectors, and specialty
contractors in residential construction. The RBC uses the South Carolina Residential Construction Standards (SCRCS), the current edition was adopted by the RBC July 1, 2005. The SCRCS is available at www.llr.sc.gov Examples of information found and used in the SCRCS include applicable time limits that are listed on page 4. The following classifications shall be open to inspection for code violations for the first forty-eight months: heating and air conditioning, plumbing and electrical. Another example of applicable information for HVAC listed in the Standards can be found under the heading of Heating and Sheet Metal Standards. See page 54 of the SCRCS. Complaint Procedure Complaints about HVAC work is one area in which LLR and the industry intersect. Sources of complaints are generally from one of the following: Public (homeowners) and/or you as a member of the public (although you work in the industry; Building Officials; Law Enforcement; LLR Staff The process by which complaints are handles is as follows: Step One: The complaint is reviewed by Complaint Analyst who gathers information in regard to violations, licensing issues, time frame for violation and/ or complaint. The Analyst also provides the research linking the complaint and respondent to property in question.
Misconduct generally falls into one of three areas: abandonment, judgments and/or application fraud. The basic process to access these three are listed below: Abandonment (Contact local building official and request appropirate documents); Judgments (Review license application and review any court documents); Complaints become Cases Application Fraud (Review There are typically three license for fraudulent types of cases. The information); Interview the complaints fall into one of the following categories: sub- builder. standard work, misconduct or Unlicensed Practice is unlicensed practice. basically complaints against individuals who not Sub-Standard Work is licensed or not properly generally defined as code licensed to perform the work and/or standard violations. that they have provided. The following are the basic Gathering evidence of steps in researching and such includes but is not outlining the case facts: limited to the following: Review case file & license Review contracts, cancelled status; Notice of complaint checks, advertisements, etc; sent to builder; Notice of inspection is sent to parties; Interview respondent; Issue citation or Cease & Desist Inspection conducted; Inspection report generated; Order. Continued on page 12 Witnesses interviewed. Step Two: The Analyst forwards the findings to a Chief Investigator. A specific investigator is assigned based on his or her geographical location and experience in specialty in question, i.e., HVAC, Electrical or Plumbing.
Check Tech First When Hiring for the Summer
Just a reminder that our technical colleges are the “training fields” for our next generation of HVAC technicans and contractors.
When you begin to consider your staffing options, give your local technical college a call. HVAC instructors (and their students) may be a valuable resource. If you don’t know who to call in your area, call the SCAHACC staff and they’ll be glad to share members names and numbers. 5
Association’s 2nd Annual Top Tech in the State
Willing to give a piece of your heart?
Winner of the 2014 Technician Red Zone
SCAHACC members have big hearts and we know our members are often asked to “share,” “donate” and “give away” to help others. The association’s new Cool Aid program is designed to allow those with big hearts to not only help a neighbor in need but to also help make our communities aware that HVAC professionals “do a lot of good” all the while helping out a neighbor in need. SCAHACC plans to host at least one project in each chapter area each year. So, your donation will help YOUR neighbor(s).

The South Carolina Association of Heating and Air Conditioning Contractors (SCAHACC), held its second annual Technician Red Zone Competition in conjunction with the 2014 Annual Convention & Trade Show. SCAHACC is proud to congratulate Aaron Courier of Carolina Heating Service from Greenville SC as the Top Tech in the State with a perfect score. Courier competed against 10 other technicians from across of the state. The technicians were skill tested and timed at four HVAC stations with accuracy being very important. The stations consisted of identifying the type of refrigerant used, high voltage troubleshooting, low voltage and thermostat trouble, measurement of airflow on air handler, gas furnace carbon monoxide and combustion testing and analysis. “Service technicians are a critical part of the HVAC business. The red zone gave them an opportunity to show off their skills as well as an opportunity to educate students and other technicians. This was our second time of doing the competition; it was a huge success. We will be doing it again, “ said Scott Kelly, contractor for Greenville, SC, association past president and Technician Red Zone Committee Chairman.
Special thanks to Johnstone Supply - The Upstate Group for sponsoring this event.

Touchdown! Yes…SCAHACC scored on about every play at the recent 2014 Convention and Trade Show as evidenced by the over 500 attendees and a record number of Trade Show booths and event Sponsorships! On behalf of the Board of Directors, SCAHACC Staff and the fantastic 2014 Convention Committee, we thank you for your support and for your attendance and hope that you had as good a time as we did bringing all of this to you. If you were not with us, you missed one heck of a time! The Annual Convention and Trade Show is a great opportunity to meet with your most valuable current AND potential customers along with sharing some special times with some great friends you probably don’t get to see very much during the year. We literally had 3 days of opportunities to meet and greet with the people who make your business work – or could make your business work even better! The Convention is also the best time of the year to further educate yourself on this crazy business we affectionately call “Heating and Air”. Our technical classes, business lectures and Trade Show offer multiple opportunities to
improve your business acumen, make new relationships and give you the new ideas you need to make your Company stronger and more profitable. And boy did we all laugh a lot! This Convention was just a “ball”! I mean literally a ball – a “football”, that is! From trying to win one of the highly valued “Cool Aid, Warm Hearts” footballs ( not those little blue and white rubber ones the “losers” like me got but the game quality Pro Footballs that the Winners got!) to listening to Dick Burleson telling stories about his 25 years as an SEC Official, it truly was a ball! It will soon be time for the next Convention Committee to begin thinking about how to transform the Myrtle Beach Marriott Grand Dunes and take over 500 South Carolina HVAC Professionals to New Orleans! Yes…that’s right! SCAHACC will invade the Big Easy next year for Mardi Gras! You will not want to miss this…. it promises to be the biggest and best Convention ever! Be looking for details over the summer. The SCAHACC 2015 Convention and Trade Show – Mardi Gras style!! Let the good times roll!!! As with every Super Bowl, there
is a Most Valuable Player Award. This honor goes to the player that makes the most impact and, without their outstanding efforts and dedication to success, the game could not be won. This year’s SCAHACC Super Bowl Convention and Trade Show MVP Award goes to our own SCAHACC Staffer Christine Steagall!!!! Congratulations Christine! Her tireless effort and tremendous skill and perseverance made us all Winners at this year’s event. We are so blessed and fortunate to have her on our team and in our Association. Christine, or should I say, “MVP Christine”, we love ya and thank you for all you did to make this event truly the Super Bowl of HVAC! You are a true Winner! Congrats to you, too, for being a part of the best Heating and Air Association in the southeast SCAHACC! Super Bowl Champs – again! Joel Reese 2014 Convention Chair
