Here's a city you may not have visited yet. "HVAC-City was formed by Air Conditioning Contractors of America (ACCA) and Wrightsoft Corp. to provide an easy way for HVAC companies to have a presence on the Internet.
Here's a city you may not have visited yet. "HVAC-City was formed by Air Conditioning Contractors of America (ACCA) and Wrightsoft Corp. to provide an easy way for HVAC companies to have a presence on the Internet. HVAC-City provides home pages for contractors, manufacturers, distributors, and system designers." In other words, HVAC-City is a website specifically designed to promote the HVAC industry. If you are looking for someone in one of these groups, the links will take you to each company's or organization's website. And, if you fall into one of the groups listed, your website can be linked to this resource (for a slight fee) or they can create a web page for you.
But there are other advantages to this website. There are good basic feature articles about HVAC and the Internet. Frequently asked questions (FAQs) are answered. Software manufacturers and industry associations are listed too. For those new to the industry, or who can't remember what a particular acronym stands for, there is a nice glossary for reference. Terms such as HVAC, Btu, SEER, efficiency, ton, and others are defined.
Although the content is brief, and it's easy to get pulled away to another website, HVAC-City (www.hvac-city.com) is a good place to start.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
