FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
COLUMBIA, S.C. — Even though at least 20,000 more qualified technicians are already needed to satisfy nationwide demand for HVAC services, according to ACHR News, the gap is still growing. Solving this significant problem will require more than the same old approaches. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, merely 1.7 percent of all American HVAC workers today are women, with only a small share of all HVAC businesses being owned by women, as well.
Fortunately, those figures have started trending upward, thanks in part to initiatives like Bryant’s annual Women in HVAC conference. As South Carolina’s most service-oriented HVAC company since its 2001 founding, Cool Care Heating and Air was a proud participant in Bryant’s just-concluded 2017 Women in HVAC event. With over 200 of the nation’s top women HVAC professionals gathered to share insights, network, engage in training, and support one another, the conference was another successful step toward addressing a nationwide shortage of qualified HVAC workers and leaders.
“Living and doing business in South Carolina can certainly make the value of reliable HVAC clear,” said Cool Care Heating and Air co-founder and co-owner Teresa Wardlaw. “With so much demand for top-quality HVAC service, we’re proud to be the top choice for so many clients throughout the Midlands. It was also truly special to participate in the recent Bryant Women in HVAC conference. As more women like our own Tia Savage continue to join the industry, we’re all bound to benefit, and this event was another clear step in the right direction.”
With the Bureau of Labor Statistics predicting that demand for HVAC technicians will have grown by twice the overall ten-year average come 2024, a longtime shortage of qualified workers has started to seem like an even more significant issue. One especially notable bright spot highlighted in a number of recent reports, as with a FIELDBOSS feature from last October, is that women are increasingly joining the traditionally male-dominated HVAC field. With HVAC equipment companies and others seeking to encourage this productive development with scholarships, conferences, and other initiatives, momentum is building as women working in the industry help change longstanding perceptions.
By participating in the recently concluded Bryant Women in HVAC conference, Cool Care Heating and Air helped support this important, highly positive trend.
