Existing Homes Program

QA Residential Service & Installation (RSI) is an accreditation program for contractors that want to prove to their customers in the residential replacement marketplace that they follow the acceptable guidelines for quality HVAC installation.

It’s true that not all contractors are created equal, and those contractors who perform truly quality work have long clamored for a way to prove that they are better than their competitors. To meet this need, the ACCA Board of Directors created the RSI accreditation.

Participating contractors agree to follow the recommended business practices in the QA Contractor Elements. These practices are necessary for an operation to provide quality service and replacement work.

Application Process

The QA application is a multi-step process. Click here to learn more and apply.

Successful applicants can choose to participate in the New Homes program, the Existing Homes (RSI) program, or both. There is only one fee and one application process. QA is open to all contractors able to meet the requirements; ACCA membership is not required. (ACCA members receive a discount on QA program fees.)
