Verified® Inc. are a team of research engineers, software engineers, systems analysts, technicians, trainers, and Ph.D. scientists working together to find energy efficiency solutions to reduce the impact of global warming.
Robert Mowris earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Wisconsin, Madison in 1983 and a Master of Science degree in Building Science at the University of Colorado, Boulder in 1985. Robert worked with Dr. Arthur Rosenfeld at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) from 1985 through 1990. Kathleen Carlson earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Economics from the University of California, Davis in 1980, an MBA from Golden Gate University in San Francisco in 1980, a Juris Doctorate degree from the University of Santa Clara in 1984 and a Masters in Psychology from JFK University in Orinda, California in 1990. Kathleen worked with Dr. Arthur Rosenfeld at LBNL from 1985 through 1987. From 1986 through 2005, Robert and Kathleen performed more than 200 research, evaluation, measurement, verification studies of energy efficiency programs for environmental groups, energy service companies, real estate investment companies, corporations, utilities and government agencies. In 2005, Robert filed his first patent application for a system and method for verifying proper refrigerant and airflow for air conditioners and heat pumps in cooling mode (US 7,500,368 B2 issued March 10, 2009). In 2006, Robert and Kathleen founded Verified® Inc., to provide Advanced Fault Detection Diagnostics (AFDD) software for the HVAC industry.
Our patented Verified® AFDD software has been used to verify the performance of more than 330,000 packaged and split system air conditioners and heat pumps since 2004. Providing advanced fault detection diagnostic methods, significant time savings, and secure-cloud scheduling, invoicing and tracking database. These procedures and recommendations save 15 to 75 minutes per job compared to the conventional procedures implemented manually or using software programs that rely on calculated superheat or subcooling values.
Our novel patented AC tune-up software was a game changer for the industry offering previously unknown features. Such as using non-intrusive temperature split measurements to determine whether or not the air conditioning system is providing proper cooling capacity and airflow before attaching refrigerant hoses to the system. If the temperature split indicates low cooling capacity, then the patented Verified® AFDD software can diagnose numerous faults such as: non-condensables, restrictions, heat transfer, compressor, or expansion valve faults to avoid unnecessary refrigerant charge adjustments. If no other faults are present, the Verified® AFDD software accurately determines exactly how much refrigerant charge to add or remove to obtain proper refrigerant charge. No other software systems provide comprehensive AFDD for air conditioning systems.
Verified® has been providing training, technical support, and AC tune-up verification services for the California AC Tune-up programs since 2004.
During 2011 Verified®'s Secure-Cloud Software was incorporated into several large-scale California AC tune-up programs. A flow chart and description of the Verified® RCA process and Secure Cloud Server implementation can be found here.
