ACCA CCI Remains Positive

October 8, 2012
ARLINGTON, Va. — Air Conditioning Contractors of America’s Contractor Comfort Index (CCI) for August shows that contractors are remaining positive about short-term growth even as the summer heat is starting to fade away.

For August, the CCI is 60. The CCI also shows that contractors are feeling better about growth than they were 12 months earlier when the CCI was 53.

ACCA began measuring contractor attitudes toward short-term economic growth with the CCI in February 2010. It 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.
