Contractors confident about air conditioning’s future

AC and Heating/Refrigeration (HVAC-R) Technicians are in high demand and construction officials believe recent growth is only the beginning as optimism abounds for the future, especially in the area of air conditioning.

The Contractor Comfort Index (CCI) for June reports that contractors continue to remain positive about short-term and long-term growth. The Air Conditioning Contractors of America began measuring contractor attitudes toward short-term economic growth with the Contractor Comfort Index in February 2010 and the index rating in June was 68, an increase from where the index was last year.

According to the Air Conditioning Contractors of American, the CCI is calculated based on a survey of the association’s contractor members, who are asked how positive they feel about new business prospects, existing business activity, and expected staffing decisions in the short-term future. Weighted and averaged into one number, a CCI of 50 or above reflects anticipated growth, meaning June’s report shows contractors believe the economy is getting better, particularly in the area of construction and air conditioning.
