Heating & Air-Conditioning Contractors in the US

The Heating and Air-Conditioning Contractors industry is heavily influenced by activity in the construction market, with the majority of income generated from heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) installations in new residential and nonresidential structures. Over the past five years, the rebound of the housing market, along with an increase in economic activity, caused new construction to start picking up in 2011. Nonresidential building construction activity also increased as consumer spending and corporate profit caused an expansion in the business sector. In the next five years, national standards for energy efficiency, as well as a growing trend toward lowering household and business energy use, are projected to encourage building owners to upgrade to more efficient systems. In addition, federal and state government energy efficiency incentives are expected to benefit HVAC contractors. Additionally, rising electricity prices are also expected to motivate households to purchase or upgrade to more efficient HVAC systems so that they can lower their electricity bills over the long term.

This industry comprises companies that primarily install and service heating, ventilation, air-conditioning (HVAC) and refrigeration equipment. Operators perform tasks that include new installations, additions, alterations, maintenance and repairs. Plumbing and related activities are not included in this report (IBISWorld report 23822b).

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
