The Comfort Institute

The Energy Experts at FLAME Heating, Cooling, and Electrical have been extensively trained through an international group known as the Comfort Institute. Based in Washington state, the Comfort Institute is a company dedicated to helping homeowners achieve a safe, healthy, clean, comfortable, and affordable indoor living environment. FLAME Energy Experts are in constant contact with the Comfort Institute and are continually offered new training experiences.

The Comfort Institute has two main goals, one centered on homeowners and one on indoor comfort contractors. To homeowners, they provide “unbiased information on how to solve common comfort and unhealthy air problems; how to save energy and money; and how to get the best value when investing in a new heating and cooling system.”  To contractors, they supply “technical training and support to improve their problem-solving abilities and installation quality.”

“Comfort Institute, Inc. (CI) is international indoor comfort research, training, and consumer protection organization based in Bellingham, Washington, with trainers and offices located throughout the United States and Canada. Comfort Institute’s Consumer Protection Division provides homeowners with valuable consumer information and tips that cover many aspects of home comfort, including ways to reduce or eliminate common problems such as:

  • hot and cold spots
  • excessive dust
  • allergy and asthma
  • dry or damp indoor air
  • unhealthy indoor air
  • noisy or unreliable heating/cooling equipment
  • excessive utility bills

Government and utility research has proven that most new “high efficiency” heating and cooling systems don’t deliver anywhere near the comfort and low utility bills they can afford. Comfort Institute is dedicated to informing North American homeowners about why this happens and how to avoid it. Comfort Institute also provides training and support to a network of independent comfort contractors across
North America. These programs help member contractors solve problems like those listed above for homeowner customers. They also help contractors provide the highest possible quality of heating and cooling service and installations at the lowest possible competitive prices.”
