Has the evolution of HVAC reached its zenith or is the industry on the brink of a groundbreaking revolution?

In recent years, the HVAC industry has seen a transformative shift in technology and its community dynamics. With the rise of social media platforms, especially Instagram, HVAC professionals are finding new ways to connect, share knowledge, and uplift each other. This evolution of HVAC is not just about better air conditioning units but about creating a more inclusive, educated, and passionate community.

How has the digital age reshaped the HVAC industry, and what does it mean for its future?

Welcome to another episode of Straight Outta Crumpton, hosted by the dynamic duo Greg Crumpton and Gabby Bar. In this episode, they sit down with Ben Poole, the founder of HVAC Tactical™, to take an inside look at the evolution of HVAC in the age of social media.

Crumpton, Bar, and Pool discuss the following:

  • The birth and vision behind HVAC Tactical™
  • The role of social media in bridging gaps within the HVAC community
  • The challenges and triumphs of introducing a new concept in a traditional industry

Ben Poole is more than an HVAC expert; he’s a visionary. As a third-generation professional in the HVAC industry, Ben’s passion for his work is palpable. Recognizing a gap in the market, he founded HVAC Tactical™ about five years ago, aiming to provide cool apparel representing the HVAC profession. But it wasn’t just about clothing; it was about creating a movement, a voice for those in the trenches. Ben’s innovative approach has brought a fresh perspective to the industry and paved the way for more inclusive and collaborative community dynamics.
