Warmer months mean hotter sales in the HVAC industry, so keeping up with demand is key to customer satisfaction. And what’s driving this demand? The reality is we can’t live without air conditioning. Today, over 86% of American households have air conditioning, not to mention every office building, manufacturing facility, hospital, school, retail location and sports venue. But we’re not alone—the rest of the world is following suit.
Worldwide HVAC demand is growing 10–15%
Today, almost every city dwelling in China has at least one AC unit, and sales are increasing in India and Indonesia at the rate of 10 to 15 percent annually. That translates to more than 700 million air conditioners installed in the next 15 years worldwide—and 1.6 billion (yes, with “b”) by 2050.
As every HVAC manufacturer and contractor knows, consumers don’t want to live without their air conditioners. An inability to supply either a new unit or repair a broken one within a day or two will lead to lost sales. Such is the demand for air that customers often ignore brand and past performance to get a quick response—regardless of the vendor.
