Comfort Systems USA, Inc. provides installation, maintenance, repair, and replacement services for heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems in the mechanical services industry. The company has 37 operating units in 83 cities and 92 locations throughout the United States. Services Provided Installation Services The company’s installation business involves the design, engineering, integration, installation and start-up of HVAC, building automation controls and related systems. The company provides ‘design and build’ and ‘plan and spec’ installation services for office buildings, retail centers, apartment complexes, manufacturing plants, healthcare, education and government facilities and other commercial, industrial and institutional facilities. In a ‘design and build’ installation, working with the customer, the company determines the needed capacity and energy efficiency of the HVAC system that best suits the proposed facility. In ‘plan and spec’ installation, the company participates in a bid process to provide labor, equipment, materials and installation based on plans and engineering specifications provided by a customer, general contractor or consulting engineer. The company fabricates the ductwork and piping and assembles certain components for the system based on the mechanical drawing specifications, eliminating the need to subcontract ductwork or piping fabrication. Then the company installs the system at the project site, working closely with the general contractor. The company also performs larger project work, with 391 contracts in progress, as of December 31, 2014. The company also installs process cooling systems and building automation controls and monitoring systems. Process cooling systems are used primarily in industrial facilities to provide heating and/or cooling to precise temperature and climate standards for products being manufactured and for the manufacturing equipment. Building automation control systems are used in HVAC and process cooling systems to maintain pre-established temperature or climate standards for commercial or industrial facilities. Maintenance, Repair and Replacement Services The company’s maintenance, repair and replacement services include the maintenance, repair, replacement, reconfiguration and monitoring of HVAC systems and industrial process piping. Strategy The company focuses on the following elements: achieve excellence in core competencies; achieve operating efficiencies; attract, retain and invest in employees; focus on commercial, industrial and institutional markets; leveraging resources and capabilities; maintain a diverse customer, geographic and project base; and seek growth through expansion and acquisitions. Suppliers The company’s suppliers include Carrier, Lennox, McQuay, Trane, York, Honeywell, Johnson Controls, Siemens, Automated Logic, Novar and Andover Control Corporation. Regulations The company’s operations are subject to the federal Clean Air Act, as amended, which governs air emissions and imposes specific requirements on the use and handling of chlorofluorocarbons, or CFCs, and certain other refrigerants. The Clean Air Act is intended ultimately to eliminate the use of CFCs in the United States and to require alternative refrigerants to be used in replacement HVAC systems.
