Founded and owned by Jerry Lawson, the Insider News Group has represented the durable goods industry with print publications since 1969 and is currently expanding coverage to include national and regional websites.

The HVAC & Refrigeration Insider® print publications include 15 monthly regional papers and a quarterly National edition which also covers 4 Western regions, making it the HVAC industry’s most widely circulated publication. More than 119,000 copies are mailed quarterly. The monthly regional papers are mailed to over 90,000 subscribers!  We are the only source for industry information with a national reach that also publishes newspapers for local markets.

We developed our initial web presence in 2010 and completely redesigned the National site as the HVAC & Refrigeration Insider Online® in 2014. The existing Florida website is being upgraded next, to be followed by the introduction of sites to complement the other monthly publications.

Our mission is twofold:
1) to help HVAC/R contractors be better informed about issues that impact their businesses, become more successful and conduct themselves as the professionals that they are, and,
2) to provide the best platform for informing HVAC/R professionals about our advertising partners’ products and services.

For advertisers, we are the best source for getting your message to your prospects and customers. Our advertising rates are generally lower than other national publications and our readership is as much a five times greater.

For readers, we provide current news, event coverage and information for each specific market. You can keep up with job opportunities, classes, distributor activities and other topics that are important to your success. That’s why we are considered the trade’s “local newspaper.”

Please contact us with any questions you may have.
