The Air Conditioning Contractors of America has a 10-minute video to help its members educate building owners and facility operators on how to develop a working relationship with HVAC contractors.

The video is available on the organization’s website at

“ACCA developed this video for our commercial members, so they would have a resource, from a third party, to help explain to their customers that working with a contractor is more than just repairs and filter changes,” said Paul T. Stalknecht, association president and CEO. “This video helps explain that having a relationship with a contractor can not only create a more comfortable work environment for building occupants, but also helps building owners save money and plan for future needs.”

The video, which features longtime ACCA member Steve Schmidt of Frederick Air in Frederick, Md., is broken down into six segments, including maintenance; capital planning and incentives; choosing the right contractor; equipment selection; and how to locate professional contractors.
