The future is bright for the HVAC industry because it’s green!
Did you know that the HVAC industry is the top employer in the energy efficiency sector?

The benefits don’t just extend to homeowners. Installing and maintaining energy-efficient HVAC systems in both residential households and commercial facilities is beneficial to the environment and the owner’s pocket by requiring less energy and money over time.
Job Creation Now and Into the Future
Job creation is happy bi-product as workers are needed to manufacture, sell, install, and maintain the systems. Job creation in the energy efficiency industry continues to grow year on year and it has been estimated that the U.S. economy will add more than a million energy efficiency jobs by 2030, and up to 2 million by 2050.
A Win-Win Situation
Throughout the United States, Air conditioning is a necessity for daily life. Happily, new energy-efficient technology means that we can enjoy our HVAC systems without the negative environmental impact of the past. The HVAC workers who install and maintain these new HVAC systems are contributing a great deal to a greener future.
