It’s the end of another year. It seems like just yesterday we were wrapping up 2015, but now it’s time to take a look back at 2016 and review the important topics that we shared with you over the past year.
As a leading supplier in the HVAC industry, we continually monitor the progress within our field. The demand for HVAC is steady throughout the year and throughout the nation. From heating to air conditioning, the HVAC industry is responsible for providing comfortable interior spaces. Reports at the beginning of the year had expected the market to grow as construction and building expanded. Optimism in the industry was, and still is, high as we head into 2017.
An area we frequent is HVAC maintenance. For optimal functioning of heating and cooling systems maintaining them properly is extremely important. The off-season is the ideal time to give systems a thorough once-over. This past spring we provided tips on how to maintain heating systems. These preventative maintenance guidelines ensured that your heating systems are in tip-top shape for the cold weather we have now.
In April we touched on the importance of Earth Day and energy efficiency. For over 40 years the EPA has been working to protect the environment and people. Programs such as ENERGY STAR® offer guidelines for products with reduced energy use that are more eco-friendly. The newest HVAC equipment uses much less energy than in the past without sacrificing comfort. Energy efficiency is a smart choice for reducing energy bills and the fuel needed to maintain a comfortable environment.
We finished out the year by attending two of the industry’s leading trade shows–Service World Expo and Comfortech. Both shows offered us the opportunity to meet with professional service contractors and explore the latest technologies. We enjoyed networking at the events and exchanging new ideas and perspectives with other industry leaders.
We’d like to thank all of you for a successful 2016 and are looking forward to serving you throughout 2017. From all of us at Alan Manufacturing, we wish you a happy and healthy holiday season!
