The winter season is in full swing and with it an influx of HVAC service calls. As a contractor, it’s up to you to explain the benefits of higher-SEER systems and help your customers afford the best products. Here are three great HVAC stats to get you started!
1. Higher-efficiency HVAC equipment can reduce energy use by up to 50%.
HVAC systems with a higher-SEER rating may seem costly upfront, but they can save homeowners money down the line. The reason? Better quality products use less energy, and lower energy usage means lower utility bills. Help your customers make their homes more comfortable and energy efficient — and increase your margins. Lead with higher-quality HVAC systems.
2. Sealing and insulating your ducts can reduce heating and cooling costs by up to 20%.
Year-round maintenance is an important part of keeping systems running at top efficiency. HVAC contractors who sell systems without offering service agreements are missing out on a major source of revenue. Ongoing maintenance also prevents energy loss, which saves homeowners money. An added bonus? Service agreements can help you develop long-term relationships and build customer loyalty for your business.
3. ENERGY STAR® certified equipment can bring yearly savings of 10-30% to homeowners.
“Invest now to save later.” It’s a phrase that most of us have heard and it’s great advice to give customers. Investing in higher-SEER products can save homeowners up to almost one-third of their predicted yearly energy costs. With these numbers, ENERGY STAR® certified equipment proves that it can be worth the price.
