globalFACT is joining leaders from across the HVACR industry in calls to grant HVAC technicians and engineers “essential business” status.

In this time of national emergency, it is vital that the HVAC and refrigeration systems we rely upon for our homes, hospitals, food and medicines are expertly maintained and kept fully operational.  This only happens if there are trained technicians available. They are, in every sense of the word, essential. 

The call for “essential business” status is supported by ASHRAE, the Air-Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute (AHRI), the Air Conditioning Contractors of America (ACCA), the Heating, Air conditioning, and Refrigeration Distributors International (HARDI), the Air Movement and Control Association (AMCA); North American Technician Excellence (NATE), the Plumbing, Heating, Cooling Contractors National Association (PHCC), the Heating, Refrigeration, and Air-Conditioning Institute of Canada (HRAI), and the Mechanical Contractors Association of America (MCAA).
