ACCA Expands ENERGY STAR Verification & Quality Assurance Staff

November 8, 2017

The Air Conditioning Contractors of America (ACCA) has announced that Sean Tolbert will serve as ACCA’s ENERGY STAR Contractor Accreditation and Quality Assurance Program Specialist.

Tolbert earned a Bachelor of Science degree in business administration from Old Dominion University in Norfolk, VA in 2013 and concentrated his studies on information technology systems. He has experience with software programming and applications, data analysis, and website development that will be utilized to enhance ACCA’s ENERGY STAR Verified Installation and Quality Assurance programs that verify the proper design, installation, and commissioning of HVAC systems.

“I am proud to be serving among some of the nation’s top contractors who are constantly working to implement new technology in their companies,” said Tolbert. “In college, I did not think that I would land in the heating and air conditioning industry, but am glad I did. There is a lot of room for the industry to grow as new technology becomes available and it is exciting to be a part of the national association working to raise the bar for the industry.”

“ACCA is glad to have Sean on board to help ACCA expand the use of technology that enables contractors to verify their design and installation measurements and keep digital records of their customers’ homes,” said Paul T. Stalknecht, ACCA President and CEO. “Sean is technologically savvy and has a good business background that will be a valuable asset to ACCA.”
