Through the Noise #318
Paul Stalknecht // President and CEO // Air Conditioning Contractors of America
No one ever thinks about air conditioning until it’s not working — that’s what our guest Paul Stalknecht of the Air Conditioning Contractors of America says. They represent 4000 member companies that work in residential and commercial air conditioning and even if people aren’t thinking about them too much at this time of year, there’s still a lot of important things that the ACCA has to offer. The air conditioning contractors have jobs. Lots and lots of jobs. The average age of the people working the technical jobs in HVAC are 50+ and so most will be retiring soon — leaving the industry wide open for those who are interested in learning a trade that doesn’t require a four-year degree and a boatload of debt. Join us today as we chat AC efficiency, governmental standards, and the possibilities for technical work for a younger generation.
