#HVACToday.com Photo of YearNational Comfort Institute, Inc. and High Performance HVAC Today magazine are pleased to announce the 2017 HVAC Photo of’ the Year! The grand prize image is one of the nine 2017 monthly winners as voted upon by visitors to this website. The image categories include:

  1. The Good. These images reflect some of the better HVAC installations/retrofits and highlight prime work by Performance-Based Contractors’ in the HVAC Industry
  2. The Bad. Often service technicians will walk into situations where they have to “pick up the pieces” of an installation or service retrofit that has gone wrong. These images are examples of what not to do, but also represent opportunities for Performance-Based Contractors across the country.
  3. The “What-the-Heck?” These images often defy explanation. They depict hack-jobs that represent the absolute worse when it comes to HVAC service and installations. In fact, the solution is often to simply start over.

In addition to being featured in the January issue of ‘HVACToday.com (the digital edition and the website), and on PerformanceTalk, the Photo of the Year Winner receives the Grand Prize of’ a free registration to National Comfort Institute’s High Performance Summit (Up to $795 in value), Austin, TX, March 4-6, 2018.
