About The BetterHVAC Movement

The BetterHVAC Movement represents a groundbreaking initiative, propelling the residential HVAC industry towards a future of excellence and innovation. It calls upon professionals to rise above current standards and actively shape the industry’s future.

What The BetterHVAC Movement Is Not

No ego, we’re not doing this for social status
No profit, we’re not doing this to make money
No waste, your time will be respected and honored
No competition, this is intended to complement, not hurt any existing efforts

We understand the altruistic nature of this movement may not be for everyone, but we believe these values are required for this moment to be successful.

And it has the side effect of helping us #sleepBetter at night. 

Why Do We Need BetterHVAC?

The Call for Change:
It’s evident that our industry is facing significant challenges. While many of us, including you, have been working tirelessly to make improvements, our efforts have often been parallel yet unorganized. This disjointed approach limits our collective impact. We need a unified, organized effort to truly revolutionize our industry.

In Honor of Your Work:
Your contributions to the HVAC industry are remarkable, yet it’s astonishing how many are still unaware of your incredible work. The #BetterHVAC Movement is not just a call for change; it’s a celebration and amplification of the work you and others are doing. We believe it’s time your efforts receive the recognition and amplification they deserve.

A Centralized Approach with #BetterHVAC:
We propose the #BetterHVAC Movement as the central hub for our collective efforts. This movement isn’t about changing the great work you’re doing; it’s about elevating and amplifying it within a more organized and impactful framework.

Your Role as a Community Leader:
We invite you to join the BetterHVAC Movement as a core community leader. This movement is about individual contributions creating a collective impact. As such, it’s volunteer-driven, with organizations taking a supportive, but not a member role.

Our Collective Goal:
Our aim is to assemble a collective of positive influencers and changemakers, acting as a unified force to transform the residential HVAC industry. We believe your voice and leadership are pivotal in this endeavor.
