Air Conditioning Contractors of America members are still taking a wait-and-see attitude toward the economy.

The ACCA’s December Contractor Comfort Index stands at 53, a drop from a year ago when the index was 61.

The index is based on a survey of ACCA members to measures how they are feeling about short-term growth. Any number above 50 indicates members are feeling more positive than negative.

The next ACCA index is to be released near the end of January.
