The Eastern Heating & Cooling Council (EHCC, a.k.a., "the Council"), a 501(c)(6) non-profit educational organization comprised of HVAC contractors, distributors, manufacturers, and other trade allies.  Since its formation in 1990, the Council has provided educational training to the HVAC community nationwide. The Council has also developed installation standards, continuing education requirements and a Code of Ethics, which all HVAC associates must abide by in order to maintain membership in the organization.

The Council offers a large selection of courses and seminars which are organized in one of two ways:

Open classes are administered solely by EHCC.  The venue is provided either by EHCC or one of our trade allies.  These classes are open to all HVAC professionals and promoted by EHCC.

Our trade allies, using EHCC instructors, administer closed classes.  They provide the venue and the promotion.

The Council supports and is a member of the local ACCA Delaware Chapter and the ACCA North Jersey Chapter. In addition, the Council has developed relationships with the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities, New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection, the Office of Innovative Technology and Market Development, and the New Jersey Builders Association.

EHCC maintains a web site (www.EH-CC.org) with links to manufacturers and supporting allies.  This serves as a one-stop source of information for consumers, which promotes the benefits of energy efficient systems and equipment.  Consumers have direct access to Contractor information through the searchable database on EHCC's web site. 

The Council has developed strong partnerships with trade allies, industry organizations, manufacturers and distributors, as well as Federal and State agencies.  Some of these professional trade organizations include.

  • ACCA - Air Conditioning Contractors of America
  • RSES - Refrigeration Service Engineers Society
  • IGSHPA - International Ground Source Heat Pump Association
  • NATE - North American Technician Excellence GHPC
  • Geothermal Heat Pump Consortium
  • NRDC - Natural Resources Defense Council
  • U.S. Environmental Protection Agency

The Council has fostered relationships with various training institutions nationwide. Training continues to be a collaborative effort between the Council and professional institutions dedicated to providing quality HVAC instruction in conjunction with the commitment to serve the community.

In addition to its connections with various training institutions, the Council has developed associations with manufacturers, utilities and trade associations throughout New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Delaware, and Massachusetts.
