The HVACR Association of Louisiana is a statewide consortium of HVACR contractors and organizations that work within the Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning and Refrigeration Industry, formerly known as the Louisiana Heat Pump Association, and founded in 1987. On March 6, 2020, our membership voted to change the name of our organization in order to become a more inclusive organization and establish a larger footprint in the HVACR industry. We have nine regions across the state and are mandated by a Code of Ethics that govern our association, and requires that all members adhere to the highest quality of work and best practices in the HVACR industry.
History of the HVACR Association of Louisiana
The HVACR Association of Louisiana, formerly known as the Louisiana Heat Pump Association, was created in 1987; at that time, the utility companies were the driving force behind the organization and brought major funding to the table. Since that time, the association has become a ‘contractor-driven’ organization that is funded by membership dues paid by contractor members, manufacturer and supplier companies, individuals and organizations that serve the HVACR industry. Over the past decade, association members have desired to change the 'heat pump' language and requirements to 'HVACR'. Therefore, at the March, 2020, annual membership meeting, the organization voted to officially change it's name to the Louisiana HVACR Association of Louisiana.
