As a contractor, it is important that you are aware of the different federal minimum efficiency levels and compliance requirements across regions. Understanding the new standards and metrics (SEER2, EER2, HSPF2) will help both you and your clients feel confident moving forward with these changes.
While many homes still use the standard single-stage air conditioner, two-stage and variable speed systems are proving to offer better energy output, efficiency, and dehumidification. Learning more about their differences and benefits can help you guide customers toward making the best choice for their home.
In order for your HVAC system to run correctly and dehumidify the interior space efficiently, your equipment needs to be sized correctly from the start. Installation needs to be done properly with fan speeds set to the desired speed for a balance of efficiency, even temperatures, and moisture reduction. Equipment controls should also be set to a point that will best optimize the system.
As an HVAC contractor, it’s important to know what your customers are looking for when shopping for a new system. Emerson Climate Technologies recently conducted a survey of about 1,500 homeowners on what factors they find most important when purchasing an air conditioning and heating system.
According to data from the Partnership for Air-Conditioning, Heating, Refrigeration Accreditation, by 2022 the HVACR industry will be facing a staffing shortfall of 115,000 contractors, making recruiting new professionals even more challenging.

Many contractors use the word rebuilt and remanufactured incorrectly as they do not mean the same thing for HVAC compressors. Rebuilt compressors only replace worn-out or unusable parts, while remanufactured compressors bring the compressor back to the latest OEM Spec. Knowing the difference can greatly impact the reliability, performance and reputation with regards to your work.
