2018 MACS Service Information Survey

 

October 1, 2018 (Lansdale, PA) The Mobile Air Conditioning Society (MACS) was organized to serve the mobile air conditioning industry. MACS’ charter and mission are communication and education. To achieve these goals, the Society has developed training programs and coordinated information between the air conditioning system manufacturers, governmental bodies and the service sector.

 

In an effort to better understand the current servicing profiles which are being encountered in the field, we are requesting the support of service facilities by responding to a survey which is currently live at this link:http://survey.constantcontact.com/survey/a07efqjb8gnjmqdv2qx/start  . Each shop can help by contributing information about their own service experience, thereby providing that overview of general service operations on the two refrigerants.

 

There are several million R-1234yf mobile A/C systems on the road. However, R-1234yf systems may be requiring minimal servicing and may well still be serviced primarily by the OEM dealerships. To provide a better understanding of the impact of the two major refrigerants being encountered in the service industry, some survey questions are separated for each refrigerant to determine if there are any different servicing trends.

 

We understand that this survey is asking for a lot of information.  As this industry is experiencing major changes, information collected through this survey may well help shop owners understand where the future of this industry is moving and help inform their decisions regarding future business activities.
