The Air Conditioning Contractors of America (ACCA) released the following statement regarding President Trump’s decision to impose additional tariffs on steel and aluminum:
“ACCA is concerned that increased costs of HVACR equipment caused by tariffs on steel and aluminum will negatively impact professional contractors and consumers,” said Paul T. Stalknecht, ACCA president and CEO. “When the price of HVACR equipment increases, consumers who are in need of a new system trend toward cut-rate and unqualified individuals to service or replace their equipment. It also shifts
the mindset of consumers to opt for putting Band-Aids on aging systems instead of replacing them with today’s more efficient products.”
