Who are Mechanical Contractors?

According to the Mechanical Contractors Association of America, mechanical contracting companies are responsible for installation, alteration, and repair of plumbing, piping, heating, cooling and refrigeration systems in buildings and structures. A mechanical contractor is licensed and skilled to handle anything involving mechanical parts.

 

How Do They Contribute to the Economy?

 

Mechanical contractors are responsible for many of our modern amenities like regulated temperatures, clean breathing air, sanitary surroundings and effective drainage. These workers also save millions of dollars every year by ensuring the units which define our modern life and productivity function optimally.

 

For example, if an HVAC system isn’t installed or repaired properly their efficiency decreases. They begin to consume excess energy to maintain the given output which increases the demand for electricity.
