This summer, National Comfort Institute relocated from Cleveland, OH, to Morristown, TN. It’s taken some time to get the offices and facilities renovated and ready to hold live classes there, and despite one or two setbacks, the building is now ready.

NCI's new HQ training center is open for keeping your HVAC Team up-to-date

In fact, the first in-person class held at the 11,000 sq. ft. facility was Airflow Testing & Diagnostics, led by David Richardson, NCI’s vice president of training, on November 30, 2023. Contractors and technicians nationwide joined David and were eager to learn about static pressure and airflow.

Long-time NCI member Jason Nikkel, a contractor from JN Electrical Temperature Control, Bowersville, GA, attended and said, “This was an awesome training class. Thank you to David Richardson and the rest of the NCI team for striving to keep the HVAC trade professional and rewarding.”

Dominick Guarino, NCI’s CEO, says that upgrades continue to be made to build out the company’s live-fire labs. The plan is for this lab to house six or more permanent HVAC systems of different types, including boiler and hydronic systems.

“We hope you will come to visit us for the training and stay for all the awesome amenities this area offers,” Guarino says.
