CENTERVILLE, Ohio — More than 200 HVAC professionals from across the country gathered in Chicago for the annual Aeroseal Success Summit, a three-day conference for contractors looking to share information and first-hand accounts on how expansion into home-performance contracting is paying off for their business.

The 2017 Success Summit, sponsored by Aeroseal and Comfort Institute, included presentations from leading home-performance experts, including a keynote presentation from Sam Rashkin, former chief architect of U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) building technologies office and author of “Retooling the U.S. Housing Industry.”

Attendees of this year’s Success Summit will also examine current trends within the HVAC industry, including the growing consumer demand for home-performance products and services.

“We’ve been hearing for the past several years that home-performance servicing represents the future of the HVAC and home contracting industry,” said Ken Summers, senior partner, Comfort Institute. “But you only need to talk to the attendees of this summit about their growing business success to know that the future is now.”

“The practical business information I get and the quality networking that goes on at the Aeroseal Success Summit makes it the single most valuable event of the year for me,” said Bill Wallace, owner, Aeroseal of Peoria, Illinois. “Each year, I come away with solid, effective tips on how to take my business to the next level, and it works. I’m excited to be back again this year for more.”

“Well over 50 percent of a home’s comfort, IAQ, and energy efficiency are contingent on some aspect of its HVAC system,” said Amit Gupta, CEO, Aeroseal LLC. “And that has translated to real opportunity for HVAC businesses that embrace a home-performance sensibility. We are finding that contractors, for instance, who add duct sealing to their lines of customer service offerings are seeing average revenue increases of 20 percent or more.”
