Across the country, demand for HVAC equipment and services is increasing. New technology in the industry brings improvements homeowners desire to improve home comfort. Natural disasters necessitate HVAC replacement services. With this demand comes the demand for increasing HVAC installation and repair services, increasing the labor market for skilled heating and cooling technicians.
Demand for HVAC Products
HVAC unit shipments are on track to break 2005’s record-setting year, according to ACHR News. This translates to more units being sold, indicating an increase in demand for heating and cooling equipment purchases and installation.
Improved HVAC Technology
Improving heat pump technology has expanded this type of heating and cooling system in the northern parts of the country, allowing homes in colder climates to benefit from the energy efficient heating they provide. Phasing out R-22 refrigerant in favor of environmentally friendly R-410A has also spiked sales of air conditioners and heat pumps. Homeowners are replacing older systems with newer, more efficient and environmentally friendly heating and cooling technology rather than repairing their existing, inefficient systems.
