ACCA members continue to feel generally positive about HVAC construction business this year, although perhaps a bit less so.

For September, the Air Conditioning Contractors of America’s Contractor Comfort Index is 74 – a three-point drop from August. A year ago, the index was 75.

The number represents the surveyed short-term HVAC market outlook of member companies, including HVAC sales business prospects and staffing levels. A number over 50 represents positive feelings on the economy.

The next index will be released at the end of October.
