Gas Furnace Replacement Company An HVAC system is a large investment on your part. We're not just speaking in reference to the initial costs of purchasing and installing the equipment, but we're also referencing the amount of money you will spend on energy bills over the years. Statistics say that you will spend well over $2,000 this year on energy bills alone. Your HVAC system accounts for almost half of the energy your home consumes within that time period. Your home, no matter how old or new, is an energy hog. Whether you're choosing to upgrade your existing HVAC system or installing a new one in your new home, here are some tips you should adhere to in order to choose the proper-sized system that will ensure energy-efficiency.So what does one do to prevent your home from sucking up so much energy? First, understand that if your equipment is old, it's time to replace it. Equipment that is 10 years or older is extremely inefficient and should be replaced, preferably with an energy-efficient model (i.e. Energy Star qualified). When purchasing any type of HVAC equipment, it's smart to go with an energy-efficient model. It will save you a ton of money over the years. You're probably wondering, "So if I choose energy-efficient equipment, why does sizing matter?" It matters! Choosing the proper-sized equipment (i.e. proper heating/cooling output) directly affects your comfort, your HVAC system's efficiency and its maintenance and operating costs. You can see how important and underestimated this topic is. In fact, it has been estimated that over half of the HVAC industry does not size your HVAC systems properly."Oversizing" tends to be the biggest mistake that is made. When you oversize an HVAC system, it can affect a number of areas within the process. For example, the installation will be more expensive. Typically oversized systems tend to cost more to operate, break down often, run inefficiently and require more maintenance. Oversized air conditioners tend to shut off before they've had a chance to dehumidify the air properly. This results in a clammy environment that may be prone to mold. Oversized furnaces create uncomfortable temperature swings.When your HVAC technician attempts to size your system, they should not be reading a label or simple by-the-book standards. Instead, the calculation should be multi-variable and include factors that are unique to your situation. For example, what is the climate like in your area? How many windows do you have and what size are they? How much insulation is there and what type of insulation is it? How big is the house? Is the house two-story or one-story? How much outside are is sneaking in? How many occupants are there? There are two industry standards that should be used to help determine the proper size for your system. These are "Manual J" and "Manual D", created by the Air Conditioning Contractors of America. Manual J, also called "Residential Load Calculation", is primarily used to determine HVAC size calculations. A reputable HVAC company will tell you that they use Manual J to determine sizing. Manual D, also called "Residential Duct Design", is used to determine duct sizing. When looking for a company to help install your new HVAC system, always be sure to inquire whether or not they use Manual J and D in their sizing and installation process.

Furnace Blower Repair All HVAC (Heating, Ventilating, and Air Conditioning) businesses have "profit ability", that is the ability to make a profit. But the ones that make profits have solid profit strategies and practices, coupled with consistent focus on pricing performance.Step # 1. Maximize Your Current Opportunity by Charging the Correct Price. • Know all your HVAC costs. • Have a profit plan. • Know your break-even (bottom-line price). • Build value in your offering (sales process).Most HVAC companies leave money on the table by not having proper control or management of their pricing. Invest some time in the management of your pricing and your bottom-line will soar. Having set prices in place allows you to maximize revenue productivity and your "profit ability", and even helps in deflecting pricing objections.Step # 2. Maximize Revenue Productivity by Setting Benchmarks for Key Performance Indicators. • Determine Key Benchmarks that drive business revenues (top & bottom-line). • What gets measured gets accomplished. • Expect 50% more from everyone (stretch plan). • Provide necessary training and tools for profit success. • Display benchmarks and performances. • Reward for excellence.Managing by benchmarks is a key component to your "profit ability". Knowing your numbers, especially your profit targets, gives you a clear roadmap to follow and helps you to stay on course when your profit vision gets blurry.Step # 3. Maximize Your Current Customer Relations. • Follow-up after Sale. • Send monthly offerings. • Send a personal note to top 20% of customers. • Provide referrals to your customers for other non-competing services (builds value in you as a resource). • Send Thank-you notes. • Remember special dates/events (B/day, Holiday, promotion, etc...). The initial cost to attract and capture a customer takes a big chunk out of your profits, so keeping your customers is a huge step in your "profit ability" factor. Having a plan in place to keep your customers fresh and attracted to you allows you to re-coup your initial investment in that customer. Studies have shown that it costs up to six times more to capture a new customer than it is to keep a customer- make an investment into keeping your customers, your bottom-line will love it.Step #4. Leverage Your Customer Base • Harvest all of the possible opportunities from your existing customers. • Build an opportunity database with that information and market from it. • Extend your HVAC product / service line to up-sell and cross-sell. • Customize your offerings so that you differentiate yourself from the competition. • Get and use testimonials. • Get customer feedback on everything.Your "profit ability" skyrockets when you can create repeat sales to your existing customers. Several different studies have shown that the longer you extend the selling lifecycle of your customer base the greater the increase of your overall profits. Have a plan in place that creates irresistible offers to your customers so that you can sell to them over and over again.Step #5. Make Your Whole HVAC Business a Salesforce. • Provide incentives to everyone in your business to sell. • Make your customers become part of your salesforce by providing Outrageous value and service that they "BUZZ" to everyone about you. • Reward everyone for referrals. • Make your suppliers a sales resource for you by referring their products and services to others. • Make it fun to sell for you.Imagine what would happen to your "profit ability" if you got everyone involved harvesting opportunities and then converting them into leads and sales. The burden of having a huge sales force can be lessened by turning non-revenue producers into revenue producers simply by creating a selling environment throughout your business. Making this happen will have a huge impact on your profits.Step #6. Have a Plan to Attract the Correct and Best • Employees (Rank Best to Worst). • Customers (Best fit). • Vendors (products). • Partners (banker, lawyer, accountant, etc...). • Opportunities (networking). • Marketing. • Ideas.Don't settle for second best, it costs you profits. Always look to improve the people and ideas you surround yourself with until you find the best possible fit for you and your "profit ability". The people around you are the conduit to your success; they provide the power and energy that connects your success to profits.Step #7. Make Your HVAC Business Agile • Automate as much as possible • Outsource what you can • Keep overhead as low as possible without sacrificing quality and customer experience • Don't get it unless it is "YES" to this question; "Will it help me generate revenue and profits?" • Cross-train employees It is much easier to acquire costs than it is to shed costs. Make sure that you position your business to run lean and mean. Don't overburden the "profit ability" of your business with unnecessary overhead. Picture a wagon-train; you want more horses in your business than wagons.Step #8. Keep Changing and Growing • Stay in touch with current HVAC market conditions and adapt to changing needs. • Challenge assumptions from within your industry (Be a Leader). • Experiment with new ideas, processes and products. • Never stop asking questions. • Never stop learning. • Grow from mistakes.Never assume when it comes to making a profit. Profit slippage easily occurs when you take your "profit ability" for granted, or you become lazy in learning, stubborn with change and happy with status quo. Profits are fleeting moments that will slip away if you loose focus and stop growing.Step #9. Share Your Success • Have a profit sharing plan. • Say "Thank-you" and mean it. • Give to your community. • Have a balance in your life.Don't be greedy; give the people around you personal "profit ability" and watch your "profit ability" skyrocket.Step #10. Always Deliver More Than You Promised Keep all your promises. • Always follow-up. • Take care of problems.Your words and actions can increase or decrease your "Profit Ability"! Furnace Boiler Repair
