NCI and TruTech Tools Announce New Partnership

National Comfort Institute (NCI) and TruTech Tools, Ltd. are partnering to provide tools and instruments to the HVAC and building performance industries. As a result, TruTech joins the ranks of partners in the NCI Member Rewards Program and will join the NCI team in Branson, MO, as part of the High-Performance HVAC Summit 2023.

As part of this partnership, effective immediately, NCI will no longer directly sell tools and instruments through its own website. Instead, they will link to an NCI-branded page on the TruTech website at Through this NCI-branded store, NCI members can purchase NCI specialty products, tools, and instrument packages at a special member discount.

NCI will continue selling resale products and proprietary support materials, including CO Monitors, Duct Saddles, clipboards, labels and tags, and brochures, through its website. They will also continue to sell hats, shirts, mugs, and other NCI branded products through their Swag Store.

We both see the High-Performance approach as a tremendous value to the industry and want to support its advancement.”

Bill Spohn, president, CEO, and co-owner of TruTech Tools, says, “Since I first met Dominick Guarino and Rob Falke in the mid-1990s, I’ve been impressed with their technical approach to training. I believe that NCI has a terrific mission to help HVAC contractors and their technicians and installers become professional craftsmen. TruTech has a parallel mission to help provide the tools, access to education, and training to help contractors do better work. What a perfect harmonization for TruTech to focus on the tools while NCI focuses on education and training.
