Here at BigRentz, we know the HVAC industry is very busy. Because of steady industry growth and a shortage of labor, HVAC contractors are being forced to find new ways to become more efficient in order to stay on target with their project deadlines.
Outsourcing your equipment rentals to BigRentz could help you with this goal. Instead of calling around to multiple suppliers to check equipment availability, location, and pricing, you can place one order with us, and we’ll fulfill the backend. For example, if you next project involves installing air duct, then you can rent a forklift to move the duct and a scissor lift to install it. If you also need a manlift because the building has multiple floors, we have those available for rent, too. Placing one order for all your equipment rentals at once frees up your time to focus on your core business.
The HAC/plumbing industry posted significant growth in 2017 thanks to the strong local economy. The good news should continue locally in 2018. In a year where the global HVAC market is expected to grow, the U.S. market is expected to post the largest gains in 2018. This growth will come not just from new sales but also from a rising awareness of the importance of HVAC servicing and maintenance, including smart maintenance.
A growing eco-consciousness among consumers and the influence of technology are helping the modern HVAC industry evolve. Consumers still value comfort, but they don’t want it to hurt the planet or their pockets. They’re demanding more efficient heating, cooling, and refrigeration solutions and are increasingly open to renewable and alternative energies. These consumer demands are reflected in the new HVAC products hitting the market.
As with most industries, new technologies are impacting the way HVAC businesses operate. They’re increasingly collecting and analyzing real-time data to make more informed business decisions rather than relying on their instincts. This trend is impacting a range of factors, including dispatching, HVAC technician and installer compensation, and financial management. Cloud technologies are also helping HVAC businesses operate efficiently, especially when they’re on job sites.
HVAC businesses aren’t the only ones using technology. Their customers are also using online mediums to select and review HVAC systems. This trend means HVAC businesses must spend time connecting with consumers through social media, ensuring their web presence is mobile-ready, and building their online reputations.
HVAC technicians use a variety of different equipment to install, service, and repair heating, cooling, ventilation, and refrigeration systems for their individual and business clients. These are just some of the pieces of equipment that HVAC companies regularly use:
Professionals working in the HVAC sector, known as HVAC technicians, are responsible for the installation, servicing, and repair of heating, cooling, ventilation, and refrigeration systems in homes and commercial properties. They might specialize in installations, servicing, or repairs, or specialize in certain types of HVAC systems. The following are common duties for HVAC technicians:
Most HVAC technicians have a set working schedule, although this may not involve the regular nine-to-five weekday hours of other businesses. It’s not uncommon for HVAC technicians to work evenings and on weekends. Many HVAC technicians make themselves available for emergency call-outs, as fixing an HVAC system could be a matter of life or death during periods of extreme heat or cold.
Many HVAC technicians work for themselves on a freelance basis. This gives them the greatest degree of flexibility. However, some technicians prefer the stability that working for an established HVAC company provides.
