HAYWARD, Calif. - The online HVAC industry directory TheHVACSource.com (www.thehvacsource.com) announced that it has undergone upgrades in order to better serve the worldwide HVAC community. Both the Website and the databases that support the online directory are operating under new technologies in order to provide a faster and more efficient Internet experience. All directory information is also undergoing a quality assurance review.

Key among the changes to TheHVACSource.com is the ability to filter data by region. On the HVAC Directory home page, a specific region can be applied to any segment of the industry in order to further refine results. Worldwide HVAC firms can be found by setting the region to "International."

According to the company, the Website has also been equipped with a robust search function that indexes all site data every hour. Frequent indexing ensures that recent additions to the HVAC Directory will be included in search results.

In addition, TheHVACSource.com has implemented a news aggregator that filters and presents relevant HVAC headlines from news sources around the world. News content is updated hourly and visitors to the HVAC News page are presented with a list of headlines and article summaries. Clicking on the headline takes the visitor to the original online publication. Individuals who register with the site also receive an e-mail newsletter with key industry insights and updates.

Finally, theHVACSource.com has automated the submission of Websites to the directory. Visitors may register on the home page to access a form for Website submission. Both a region and one or more industry segments are selected during the submission process. To ensure quality of content, all incoming links, as well as existing links from the original site, are validated and reviewed for relevance to the HVAC industry.
