The Air Conditioning Contractors of America (ACCA) has announced Clay’s Climate Control in Linwood, New Jersey, as the ACCA 2020 Residential Contractor of the Year.

The 2020 judges were Tony Shaker of Enfinity Partners LLC, Mashpee, Massachusetts (2000); Larry Taylor of Taylor Consulting, Fort Worth, Texas (2001); Greg Leisgang of JonLe Heating & Cooling, Cincinnati (2005); Richard Dean of Environmental Systems Associates Inc., Columbia, Maryland (2006); and Stan Johnson, retired from Stan’s Heating and Air Conditioning Inc., Dennison, Texas (2009).
"ACCA is pleased to present the 2020 Residential Contractor of the Year award to the team at Clay’s Climate Control,” said Barton James, ACCA president and CEO. “Jen and Clay Pierce set out with an ambitious goal. Through their dedication and determination, they have had a huge impact in their market area, and on our industry. They are making investments daily through training, marketing, and customer interactions that shine a light on what a great industry we all work in. ACCA looks forward to seeing Clay’s Climate Control’s continued success.”
“We are honored to be recognized by industry leaders as ACCA’s 2020 Residential Contractor of the Year,” said Clay and Jen Pierce, owners of Clay’s Climate Control. “When we started our business in 2001, we wanted to change the expectations people had of the home service experience. Little did we know how much work that would take or the resources we would need. With connections we have made through ACCA and the opportunities they provide us, we have been able to make significant progress towards that goal. This recognition shows us how far everyone at Clay’s Climate Control has come.”
Clay and Jen Pierce will receive the Residential Contractor of the Year award at ACCA’s 2020 Conference and Expo, March 16-18 in St. Louis. To attend the ACCA 2020 Conference and Expo, and view ACCA’s awards ceremonies, register at www.accaconference.com.
