ACCA Index Finds HVAC Contractors are Positive

March 2, 2015
HVAC contractors are asked how positive they feel about new business prospects and existing business activity.

HVAC contractors' outlook for spring continues to improve, with the latest news from Air Conditioning Contractors of America (ACCA). ACCA reports today that its February Contractor Comfort Index (CCI) shows that contractors continue to feel positive about short-term growth. ACCA began measuring contractor attitudes toward short-term economic growth with the CCI in February 2010.

For February 2015, the CCI is 77. The CCI also shows that contractors are feeling better than they were 12 months earlier when the CCI was 72.  

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.
The CCI is released prior to the start of each month; the next index number will be released during the last week of March.

The ACCA Conference & IE3Expo will be held March 15-19, at the Gaylord Texan Resort & Convention Center.
