Contractors Still Positive About Growth As Summer Comes To An End. 
 
The Contractor Comfort Index (CCI) for August shows that contractors are remaining positive about short-term growth even as the summer heat is starting to fade. ACCA began measuring contractor attitudes toward short-term economic growth with the CCI in February 2010.

For August 2012, the CCI is 60. The CCI also shows that contractors are feeling better about growth than they were 12 months earlier when the CCI was 53..

The CCI is calculated based on a survey of the associationís contractor members, who are asked how positive they feel about new business prospects, existing business activity, and expected staffing decisions in the short-term future. Weighted and averaged into one number, a CCI of 50 or above reflects anticipated growth.

The CCI is released prior to the start of each month; the next index number will be released during the last week of September.

The Air Conditioning Contractors of America (ACCA) is a non-profit association serving more than 60,000 professionals and 4,000 businesses in the indoor environmental and energy services community. Founded more than 40 years ago, today ACCA sets the standards for quality comfort systems, provides leading-edge education for contractors and their employees, and fights for the interests of professional contractors in every state in the country.
