Air Conditioning Contractors of America
Quality Assurance Accreditation Program
This program gave HVAC contractors a way to prove their capability to builders and homeowners. Designed by ACCA with contractor input, the quality assurance program focused primarily on American National Standards Institute (ANSI), Energy Star, and ACCA standards, accrediting contractors who follow those standards when installing HVAC systems in new and existing residential buildings.
Benningfield Group was responsible for developing the website and application (available through the Apple Store and Google Play) that collected and cataloged data from contractors as they moved through the qualification process. The login for this application was integrated with ACCA’s content management system so that only contractors actively in the program could participate. As contractors used the application to complete an installation checklist, the software provided user-friendly guidance and assistance as appropriate. The application employed several robust internal error-checking methods before uploading the results to a database. As soon as the data is submitted, the information was automatically visible on the administrator side of the application for review.
