This is a convenient choice: residential HVAC contractors now have two ways to submit project details to our judges for the annual Quality Home Comfort Awards, which recognize excellence in home HVAC installation.

Mail delivery, whether U.S. mail, FedEx or UPS will still be accepted. Or, you can now easily navigate through a series of questions, and provide project details online. Photos of the installation process, completed installation, any before-and-after photos, and a commissioning statement can also be easily "zipped" and uploaded into the online form.

The Quality Home Comfort Awards first appeared as the HVAC industry's first such awards program in 1991. The goal is to recognize quality in professional residential HVAC contracting. Since that time, more than 100 outstanding HVAC projects have been recognized. Winning projects will be featured in the July edition of ContractingBusiness.com.

We offer the online option to accomodate busy contractors who just don't have much time to assemble papers, photos, and commissioning reports into a binder and mail. But some still prefer documenting their successful installations on paper and sending it to us that way.

Any size residential HVAC project will be considered, as long as it has been installed within the past year.

Other improvements to the entry process include separate categories for geothermal and hydronic/radiant projects. The deadline for 2013 QHCA entries is May 6.
