Jan. 09 /CSRwire/ - BBJ Environmental Solutions (OTCBB: BBJE - news) reports that by a vote of 50 - 5, the U.S. House of Representatives' Energy and Commerce Committee approved the bipartisan "Energy Advancement and Conservation Act of 2001." Sponsored by subcommittee chair Joe Barton (R-TX), the bill directs the Secretary of Energy to "develop and implement a public education campaign to educate homeowners and small business owners concerning the energy savings resulting from regularly scheduled maintenance of heating, ventilation, and air conditioning and refrigeration (HVAC/R) systems." To accomplish this goal, the bill authorizes $5 million for the Secretary to spend during fiscal years 2002 and 2003. During the Committee hearing, Rep. Steve Largent (R-OK) introduced an amendment directing the Secretary to allow trade, professional and energy efficiency organizations who have expertise in servicing HVAC/R equipment the opportunity to participate in the program.

"We consider this bill a major victory in our nation's battle to conserve energy. If we can convince every homeowner to adopt regularly scheduled, quality maintenance check-ups, we could reduce our national electricity load. Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning system evaporator coils and drip pans are a breeding ground for bacteria, mold, algae, and other fungi. These contaminants will not only seriously curtail your system's ability to deliver clean air to the conditioned space but shorten your system's life by forcing it to work harder, causing wear and tear, resulting in higher energy bills," says Robert Baker, CEO of BBJ Environmental Solutions. "Proper maintenance of your HVAC/R system can pay handsome dividends by lowering your energy bills and improving the quality of air your family breathes. This bill provides BBJ, along with their distributors and contractors, legislative support in its efforts to educate the public on the benefits of adopting regularly scheduled quality maintenance check-ups. Cleaning the system first with a product such as our Power Coil Clean and then applying BBJ MicroBiocide, an antimicrobial to inhibit new growth, makes a lot of sense these days for both our health and our pocketbook," adds Baker.

BBJ Environmental Solutions, Inc. develops, manufactures and markets products that eliminate air contamination in heating, ventilating, air-conditioning and refrigeration systems anywhere they are used (health care facilities, office buildings, residential homes, schools, governmental facilities, transportation vehicles, food plants, etc.). BBJ products are distributed and sold through private label partners and HVAC wholesalers and contractors across the U.S. All BBJ products are environmentally friendly, easy to use and biodegradable; and are registered with the Environmental Protection Agency, NSF International and/or the United States Patent Office. To learn more on how you can improve the healthfulness of your environment, safeguard yourself and your family from the hazards of indoor air pollution and enjoy the benefits from reduced energy bills, please find additional information at www.bbjenviro.com.
