ACR Supply Helps the HVAC Industry with IAQ Assessments via IAQ Screen Check

As recent as 10 years ago, the #1 request from a leading HVAC manufacturer and their HVAC contractors was for an inexpensive, effective indoor air quality screen test kit.

The HVAC industry has been searching for a method to help their clients with identifying and measuring levels of the indoor environmental contaminants. As recent as 10 years ago, the #1 request from a leading HVAC manufacturer and their HVAC contractors was for an inexpensive, effective indoor air quality screen test kit. 

The IAQ Screen Check/Bio-Scan400™ was developed by the world-class scientists at EDLab—a division of interdisciplinary environmental consulting firm Pure Air Control Services, Inc.—as the core component of the IAQ Screen Check product line.  Manufactured by Building Health Check, LLC, the DIY screen check kits offer a revolutionary test for identifying and determining the levels of various indoor air contaminants.

Building Health Check, LLC has teamed with ACR Supply, a leading wholesale distributor of air conditioning, refrigerating and heating replacement parts and supplies, to offer the IAQ Screen Check line to HVAC dealers throughout NC and other southeastern states.

About ACR Supply:

Founded by L.C. Meachum in 1977 in Durham, NC, ACR Supply Company, Inc. is primarily focused in the marketing and wholesale distribution of air conditioning, refrigeration and heating replacement parts and supplies throughout central North Carolina. ACR also markets various specialty products throughout the southeast.

ACR Supply inventories some 11,000 different product items that it purchases from approximately 500 different manufacturers and suppliers.

ACR's customer base consists of Air Conditioning and Refrigeration Contractors, Supermarket Chains, Mechanical Contractors, along with Industrial, Institutional and Government Agencies.

“We are excited about the distribution capabilities of ACR Supply to reach the HVAC Dealers with our invaluable IAQ Screen Check Kit product,” said Ed Ziegler, vice president of business development at Building Health Check, LLC. “ACR Supply’s HVAC patrons can offer their residential and commercial customers indoor air quality help.”

Headquartered in Clearwater, FL, Building Health Check, LLC is a wholly owned subsidiary of Pure Air Control Services, Inc. and manufacturer of indoor environmental screen test kit products.  In 2002, the company launched its innovative IAQ Screen Check line, which includes test kits for mold, bacteria (including staphylococcus), dust mites, fiberglass fibers, formaldehyde, mycotoxins, organic vapors (chemicals) and other allergens and irritants.

The kits include complete instructions, sample collection devices, fact sheets, and American Industrial Hygiene Association accredited lab analyses, performed by the scientists at Environmental Diagnostics Laboratory (AIHA 102795).

After initially being used largely by Pure Air Control Service’s building diagnostic sciences division and other industrial hygiene consulting firms, the IAQ Screen Check line’s major rollout to wholesale distribution began in mid-2006, when Carrier Corp., a leader in air-conditioning, heating, and refrigeration systems, purchased the screen test kits to offer in 10 test markets. Today, more than 30,000 IAQ Screen Check test kits have been used in-house, packaged with Building Health Check, LLC’s evalu-aire product line, or sold individually.
