The economic demand for HVACR is still growing, and HVAC field service organizations have had to come up with modern innovations to open new doors. The HVACR systems market was an $81.1 billion market as of 2015 and is expected to grow by 5.5% each year through 2020. That leads to opportunities worth $130.7 billion.
Refrigeration continues to be an expected major player in this growth, as demand for cold storage and good processing expands. At the end of the 2018 AHR Expo, the annual Economic Outlook Survey of HVACR manufacturers identified that new construction was the largest market driver heading into 2019. Of the respondents, 45% cited new construction as the growth engine for the industry.

HVAC Installation Software and Job Costing
As the industry continues to thrive on the back of new installation, HVACR organizations are needing a system to better deliver those new installations and construction. When completing an installation project, there are plenty of moving parts that need to be addressed.
- Quoting for the new unit
- Buying parts and equipment

Expanded Workforce with Subcontractor Management
The HVAC industry is seeing plenty of growth, but one of the challenges is finding the man-power to complete all the work. It’s no secret that skilled technicians are becoming harder to find, and HVAC managers are having to look beyond their own workforce. That’s why industry leaders are turning to subcontractors to help fill in the gaps in service. The best field service software solutions are coming with subcontractor management tools. They are making it easy to onboard subcontractors, schedule and dispatch them work orders and after completion, and get them paid.
Fieldpoint’s subcontractor management software makes handling subcontractors and third-party vendors as simple as handling your own. Use workforce management portals, such as Service Channel and WorkMarket to get your jobs to the open market and have subcontractors bid on jobs. The best part is, all of this is completed without leaving the Fieldpoint field service software. Communicate directly with them and use the field service mobile app to have them complete jobs using advanced checklists. When the job is complete, integrations with CRM, ERP and accounting systems will make it easy to create payment vouchers and get them paid immediately.
