‘Waiting lists already for installing air conditioners’ | Money

With more and more hot summers, the demand for air conditioners and therefore installers is increasing every year. Air conditioner companies also see that working from home has boosted the demand for air conditioners. “We now see requests for installing a system all year round,” says installer Corné Balemans from Breda. “People now want to cool not only the bedroom, but also their office.”

Short of staff

In addition, according to industry club Techniek Nederland, the sector is still struggling with a shortage of qualified personnel. “The technology sector is desperate for professionals,” says chairman Doekle Terpstra. “Not just to install air conditioners, but for all disciplines and at all levels.” According to Terpstra, this year is even busier with air conditioning requests than the record year 2020.

Entrepreneur Martin Hoekstra from Nieuwkoop says he is busier than ever. ,,I can place an air conditioner in mid-September for customers who apply now. We have trained five new mechanics before this season. They are packed all year round.”
