Western HVAC Performance Alliance

The Western HVAC Performance Alliance (WHPA) is a fusion of HVAC, energy efficiency, facility, and property management organizations whose decision-maker-level appointees work with one another, with educators, with utilities, and with government to curb energy waste.

Membership in the WHPA is free. Impact follows.

WHPA members participate in committees and working groups, using their collective expertise to inform California utilities and regulating agencies on issues such as HVAC system specification, compliance, sizing, installation, commissioning, operation, service, and maintenance.
