The 10 years I have worked as a technician has been quite an eye-opener.
When I lost my job, I was working for a regional HVAC company that controlled 25% of the heating and cooling market.
As a regional manager, I traveled a lot and made many business contacts. The one thing I noticed was lacking is the need to harmonize operations and provide clients with a central reference point. This was my ticket to starting an online-based HVAC business that provides free but accurate quotes or estimates to clients. The website I set up brought together every HVAC equipment supplier in the region. Under each business was a summary of the services that every business offers. At any time, you can visit the website and check seer ratings, air conditioning installation fee, HVAC service rates, radiant heater equipment, and parts as well as several cooling systems. Some businesses offer air conditioner service plans that are highlighted as a bonus. I intended to ensure that every client can compare rates for quality HVAC without necessarily calling so many suppliers or visiting several stores because of lack of time. I also gave room for any independent a/c workman or HVAC contractor to showcase their skill and services While doing the online listing, I still managed to service air quality systems for residential and commercial premises and spread the word about my website. Getting multiple quotes before committing to buy a new HVAC or a portable space heater gave people the confidence to buy what they believe in and shop online from the convenience of their home or office.
