Summer has just started, and we have already had some record-breaking hot temperatures! 84 percent of all homes in the United States have some kind of air conditioning. In fact, the U.S. uses more air conditioning than all other nations combined. It is more common in the U.S. to have an air conditioning unit than a dishwasher, garage, or dining room. 42% of homeowners call a professional to perform routine maintenance. Air conditioners that go through regular HVAC maintenance last 40 percent longer.

If you have any advertisers (customers) that are HVAC installers (maintenance/repair), they most likely buy multiple brands from a local distributor so that they can service their customers that may have a Lennox, Trane, American Standard, etc. units in their homes. You may also have advertisers (Hardware Stores, Lighting Stores) that sell window air conditioning units, box fans, ceiling fans, etc. and may all be eligible for co-op funding.
