Contractor Confidence Up

December 3, 2012
ARLINGTON, Va. — Air Conditioning Contractors of America’s (ACCA) Contractor Comfort Index (CCI) for October shows that contractors are feeling more confident about short-term growth. For October 2012, the CCI is 60. The CCI also shows that contractors are feeling about the same as, or slightly better than, they were 12 months earlier when the CCI was 58.

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