New construction, or the lack of it, may have put a damper on the new install HVAC sector, but many maintenance and repair technicians seem to have more work than they know what do with it. Think about it. If the a/c goes out in an office building, or there is no heat in the winter, it has to be fixed. As for outsourcing, you can’t send the building overseas to have it repaired. The job must be done and it must be done onsite. Sounds like job security to me.
