HVAC Stats & Trends All Indicate Massive Growth

Everywhere you look, data predicting the future of the HVAC industry is promising. According to Grand Review Research, “the U.S. HVAC systems market size was valued at USD 15.16 billion in 2020” and is “expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.0% from 2021 to 2028.” Similarly, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that the workforce of the HVAC industry will see a “13 percent growth through 2028.” Experts predict many factors will contribute to this surge in demand, including:

  • The release of high-efficiency equipment
  • Warming climate conditions and the subsequent stress on HVAC units
  • A boom in residential and nonresidential real estate construction
  • An increase in tax credits and rebate programs promoting energy-efficient HVAC units
  • A resurgence of business opportunities lost during the COVID-19 pandemic

As these factors propel market growth, it is essential that your HVAC business be equipped with the proper infrastructure and software to scale successfully. Basic tasks, such as payroll and scheduling appointments, become difficult to track – especially when you are constantly integrating new customers and onboarding new employees.
