Home Services – Air Conditioning and More

Heating and Air Conditioning in the US Industry Market Research Report from IBISWorld Has Been Updated

As a result of persistently high unemployment and reduced businesses operations over the past five years, more vacancies in commercial buildings appeared and demand for new nonresidential structures weakened, leading to a decline in industry demand. For these reasons, industry research firm IBISWorld has updated a report on the Heating and Air Conditioning industry in its growing industry report collection.

New York, NY (PRWEB) February 06, 2014

The Heating and Air Conditioning industry is heavily influenced by activity in the construction market, with the majority of income generated from heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) installations in new residential and nonresidential structures. Maintaining, monitoring and repairing existing equipment also accounts for a significant share of revenue, lending stability to the industry due to the volatile new construction markets of recent years. These service segments also make the industry susceptible to changes in levels of disposable income. Ultimately, industry revenue is expected to increase at an annualized rate in the five years to 2014.

Moreover, the collapse of the housing market and subsequent economic recession caused new construction activity to decrease dramatically. Between 2009 and mid-2011, demand for new housing was hampered by an oversupply of existing homes and declining property values. Nonresidential building construction activity also declined, as the recession caused a contraction in the business sector. As unemployment rose and businesses reduced operations, more vacancies in commercial buildings appeared and demand for new nonresidential structures weakened. Consequently, these factors hurt demand for HVAC installations across the construction markets.

The Heating and Air Conditioning in The Woodlands has a low level of concentration, as no industry firm accounts for more than a small percentage of total industry revenue. After two years of declining revenue from 2009 to 2010, the industry rebounded in 2011 and recorded growth in 2013. Positive signs in the housing market indicate the construction sector’s burgeoning return to strength. As more homes and commercial structures are built, and require HVAC system installations in turn, demand for industry technicians will increase strongly. Furthermore, national standards for energy efficiency and a growing trend toward lowering household and business energy use, is projected to encourage building owners to upgrade to more efficient systems. With these positive developments, industry revenue is forecast to rise at an annualized rate during the next five years, with significant growth in 2014 alone.

What You Need to Know About Testing Your Pumps

The April 24th webinar will provide an overview of the Pump Acceptance Testing for Rotodynamic Pumps ANSI/HI 14.6—2011 standard. This session is ideal for Pump Users, Engineering Consultants, Pump Test Lab Personnel, Pump Specifiers, Pump Technicians, Engineering Staff, and Pump Distributors. Participants also earn 1 professional development hour (PDH) credit directly from the Hydraulic Institute upon completion of the webinar.

At the completion of this webinar, attendees will be able to identify duty points for pump acceptance tests, determine if a tested pump is within the permissible amplitude of fluctuation of measurement uncertainty, and interpret test acceptance grades and tolerances. Participants will also learn how to use default test acceptance grades in appropriate situations and use the Rotodynamic Pumps for Hydraulic Performance Acceptance Tests (ANSI/HI 14.6—2011) standard to analyze results from the testing.
