Two new endorsing associations give their support to the 2009 AHR Expo

WESTPORT, Connecticut…May 22, 2008 - Reflecting the continuing growth of sustainable ‘green’ products and solutions in the HVACR industry, the Green Mechanical Council (GreenMech) and Home Ventilating Institute (HVI) have recently become the 29th and 30th endorsing associations of the 2009 AHR Expo ®, January 26-28 at Chicago’s McCormick Place.

As new supporters of the HVACR industry’s premier exposition and conference, both organizations will encourage their members to take advantage of the numerous educational and industry opportunities available at the 61st edition of the world’s largest HVACR exposition.

“Both Green Mechanical Council and Home Ventilating Institute focus on sustainable issues that will be of special interest to many attendees,” said Clay Stevens, President of International Exposition Company, which produces and manages the AHR Expo. “All of our endorsing associations provide valuable perspectives from a variety of key industry segments.”

The Green Mechanical Council’s goal is to educate contractors, field technicians and industry leaders about creating and maintaining environmentally sound residential and commercial mechanical systems. In addition to providing information and training to help members become better in their fields, the Green Mechanical Council works with technical and theoretical educational institutions to encourage the future generation of industry professionals through solid curriculum.

Founded in 1955, the Home Ventilating Institute represents a wide range of home ventilating companies that manufacture products in the United States, Canada, Asia and Europe. Having developed its industry’s certification system, the Home Ventilating Institute’s Certified Ratings Program has been accepted and recognized as the method of performance assurance by many agencies including the US Department of Housing and Urban Development, International Conference of Building Officials (ICBO), and the National Electrical Manufacturers Association.

The 2009 AHR Expo is co-sponsored by the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) and the Air-Conditioning, Heating and Refrigeration Institute (AHRI) and the Heating, Refrigeration and Air-Conditioning Institute of Canada (HRAI) is an honorary sponsor. ASHRAE's winter meeting is also held concurrently with the AHR Expo each year.
