ARLINGTON, Va. - The Air Conditioning Contractors of America (ACCA) has announced a new partnership with Market Hardware, a provider of custom Web site packages, to offer Web site design and hosting services to the association's contractor members.

"We have been looking for the right partner for a program like this for some time," said Kevin W. Holland, ACCA vice president for Communications, Membership & Corporate Development. "Our members need credible, professional Web sites in order to compete and succeed in the modern world. Up until now, none of the available options met our high standards.

"But when we discovered Market Hardware several months ago, we knew that they had a program that could set our members apart. Market Hardware has a full-service approach, creating custom Web sites that will differentiate contractors from their competition and turn leads into customers. And because they focus on specific service industry niches, they are able to do this at a low cost that makes high-quality Web sites affordable to all contractors."

Market Hardware's package for contractors includes: custom Web site designs, professional writing services, expert educational content provided by ACCA, Web site name registration, e-mail services, real-time Web site reports, high-performance hosting services, and submission services to Google, Yahoo, other popular search engines and online yellow pages.

"We recognize the importance of Web sites for HVACR contractors in attracting and converting more customers, and we are pleased to offer a substantial discount on our professional Web site services to ACCA members," said Brian Kraff, CEO, Market Hardware. "We look forward to rolling out additional benefits as part of this partnership in 2006."

ACCA members can call 800-342-9914 to sign up for this discount and speak with a Market Hardware professional. For more detailed information and terms of the offer, visit
