ARLINGTON, VA — The Air Conditioning Contractors of America (ACCA) has announced a new benefit for its members. In partnership with Wells Fargo Financial Retail Services, ACCA members may now qualify for a new consumer financing program created especially for residential contractors.

ACCA EXPRESS is the new private label credit card program offered for ACCA members through Wells Fargo Financial Retail Services. The program is designed to give residential contractors a selection of comprehensive and competitively priced special-term promotions to meet the needs of their businesses as well as their customers.

“We spent months working with our members and Wells Fargo Financial Retail Services to develop a program that is the best in the HVACR contracting industry,” said Paul T. Stalkhnect, ACCA president and ceo. “Use of this program will help contractors compete in a crowded marketplace, improve customer service and convenience, and provide quick and easy application processing with immediate card activation. Cardholders will receive dedicated lines of credit for heating and cooling needs, extremely competitive interest rates, deferred or low minimum monthly payments, and no annual fee or prepayment penalty.”

According to ACCA, the program was designed with an eye toward the marketplace to ensure that it remains competitive with other consumer financing programs. Also, the program allows contractors to take advantage of special financing programs to increase sales and receive customized forms to promote their individual businesses.
