Share Article

This new video from ACCA is designed to help homeowners understand how to hire a professional contractor and what to expect from that contractor during HVAC service.

The Air Conditioning Contractors of America (ACCA), the nation’s largest association of indoor environmental systems professionals, has produced a new online video to help educate homeowners about how to choose a professional HVAC contractor to meet their heating and cooling needs. The 10 minute video is available at

“ACCA developed this video for homeowners, because we feel there are many misperceptions about what a professional, quality contractor is and how a consumer can locate one in their area,” said Paul T. Stalknecht, president and CEO of ACCA. “This video is an introduction and overview for homeowners who are doing research about their air conditioners, furnaces, or heat pumps. It shares the valuable information that they need to know, in terms they can easily understand, without overwhelming them.”

The new video features long-time ACCA member Steve Schmidt of Frederick Air in Frederick, MD, and is broken into five segments:

1.    Introduction
2.    Replacement vs. Repair
3.    Choosing The Right Contractor
4.    Equipment Selection
5.    How To Locate Professional Contractors
