At their Annual Conference in Savannah, GA. last month, Elaine Powers, of Powers Heating & Air, Peachtree City, was inducted into the “CAAG Hall of Fame.”

The Conditioned Air Association of Georgia (CAAG) is a statewide nonprofit professional trade association based in Atlanta, Georgia that represents HVAC or “conditioned air” contractors around the state that are professionally licensed by the Georgia Secretary of State’s office.

The “Hall of Fame” award is not given out very often and is reserved for contractors who have demonstrated throughout their distinguished careers a dedicated sense of service to their customers and the HVAC industry in Georgia.

Additionally, Mrs. Powers is the only person in the history of CAAG to receive the “CAAG Contractor of the Year” award three different times in 2015, 2019 and 2020. She is also the first woman to serve as President of the statewide association for the 2018-2019 term of office.

She has served on CAAG’s Board of Directors for a number of years, is the current CAAG’s representative on the Dept of Community Affairs Codes Advisory Committee and is a director in the Metro Atlanta Air Conditioning Contractors Chapter of CAAG.

Additionally, Governor Brian Kemp appointed her to the State Licensing Board for HVAC contractors, the State Construction Industry Licensing Board, Conditioned Air Division.

Elaine has lived in Fayette County since 1969 with only a brief interruption while serving in the U.S. Navy for one term. She graduated from the University of West Georgia with an Accounting degree and has a MBA from Keller Graduate School of Management.

Elaine has been active in the industry since 1979 and is currently the President of Powers Heating & Air. Powers is a Premier Lennox Dealer and provides maintenance, service repairs and replacements for residential clients mostly in Fayette and Coweta Counties. Powers also serves industrial, institutional, and general commercial clients throughout the State.

CAAG, formed in 1980, has over 1000 members in 24 local chapters.
