Preparing Your HVAC Business for WinterSamantha Bezich
Aeroseal Allows Contractors to Combat the Winter Months While Retaining Business
As winter quickly approaches along with the end of the year, many challenges present themselves for business owners. Finding opportunities to find and retain skilled employees is just one of several priorities during this stressful time.
Aeroseal’s latest webinar, “Weathering the Cold: Preparing Your HVAC Business”, discusses ways to prepare your contracting business for the upcoming winter season. The webinar is led by Lenny Siers, owner of One Hour HVAC in Niceville, Florida, and Tracy Martin, Director of Dealer Development at Aeroseal, LLC.
“Adding the Aeroseal product to our business allowed us to go from $12 million to $25 million over the last six years.” – Lenny Siers
Combatting the Winter Months
Winter weather brings big obstacles to your business that are magnified by COVID-19:
Less opportunity to install
Labor loss due to bored employees
Flip the Script on the Pandemic
To dodge these problems, contractors must be ambitious and get creative to address these business issues. This requires us to realize that while COVID-19 magnifies our business issues, it also has brought us opportunities.
The biggest one is that homeowners now put health ahead of comfort. And they’re willing to invest in their home to get it.
“IAQ awareness is 10x more than in the past. We have great products that solve issues and concerns for high humidity and challenges in temperature control. This offers homeowners peace of mind and sets us apart from our competitors.” – Lenny Siers
Busy Employees Are Happy Employees
Retaining skilled employees is always a top priority. By offering new services, like duct sealing to homeowners, you have new options to do so. Being able to offer fair wages, job security, career growth, along with access to new services allows your workforce to continue educating themselves while helping homeowners understand the importance of air quality.
Helping your team become HVAC diagnostic experts, not just HVAC contractors, can help a business overcome the shoulder season.
Comprehensive solutions such as offering various options to homeowners can further set your business apart from the competition. It is important to be able to offer solutions no one else has acknowledged before. This is not to be mistaken as “more options = more cost”. This offers the homeowner more flexibility to fit their budget and preference. It is critical to assure they are pleased with the work done in their home.
Spending More Time Indoors
COVID-19 has completely shifted the duct sealing industry’s landscape. Homeowners were already spending 90% of their time indoors. Quarantine has only increased this and helped raise awareness of the importance of indoor comfort. To achieve IAQ during this pandemic, proper ventilation is considered as important as mask wearing, hand washing, and social distancing.
The Duct Sealing Opportunity
Aeroseal is the leading way to seal ducts in homes and commercial buildings. Homeowners receive confidence and satisfaction while contractors gain the opportunity for added revenue, growth, and increased workload.
Aeroseal offers services that will set contracting businesses apart from the rest of the competition, building that clientele on upon a foundation of trust.
