Carmel Software has been hired by PECI to develop a customized mobile software application that allows users to perform HVAC rooftop unit (RTU) audits and inspections. This mobile software application will be utilized by HVAC contractors and facilities managers who service and maintain buildings served by large western utilities. This is all part of an energy efficiency and market transformation program to inform commercial building owners of the benefits of quality maintenance for their HVAC equipment.

"Carmel Software has proven leadership in the mobile HVAC application space and continues to be a strong partner in our efforts to effectively operationalize the ANSI/ASHRAE/ACCA Standard 180 for our clients," said Duane Whitehurst, senior product manager at PECI. "The impact of this new tool on the HVAC industry will be crucial to our work with utilities and for the industry to support the standard for quality maintenance."

The mobile software will support maintenance workflows as defined in the ANSI/ASHRAE/ACCA Standard 180, "Standard Practice for Inspection and Maintenance of Commercial Building HVAC Systems". The software will work on a variety of mobile platforms including the Apple iPhone, Android, Microsoft OS, and Blackberry.

"We are proud to have been hired by PECI to develop this mobile software. Software like this will help building owners receive financial incentives for performing important equipment audits and repairs," said Stephen Roth, Principal of Carmel Software.
