How to Start Your Own HVAC Business

HVAC is short for Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning and the role of the HVAC technician is to carry out routine maintenance and repairs on these systems. HVAC technicians often service customers in both residential and professional contexts. Wherever any of these systems are in place, the services of an HVAC technician will eventually be required.

There is definitely a need for HVAC technicians. It is the kind of service which is in constant demand, making an HVAC business an excellent choice for a recession-proof career path. Starting an HVAC business, like any kind of business, presents a great challenge initially. However, once the business has been established and is on its feet, you can grow it at whatever paces suits you.

Starting a business will always present a challenge, as it isn’t the kind of venture that should be entered into lightly. But the combination of a constant demand for the services of an HVAC technician, and the constant evolution of the technologies involved, ensure that HVAC technicians are always in demand. This makes an HVAC technician business a relatively safe bet when compared to other businesses you could start.

Get Certified

The first thing to do, before you can even consider starting an HVAC business, is to obtain the appropriate certification. The good news is that this is an easy and straightforward process, and once you have obtained your certification, you will be free to operate your own HVAC business. There are a number of HVAC schools to choose from, wherever you live in the United States, so you should be able to find a school nearby.

Those who are looking to manage an HVAC business from a purely management perspective do not need to be certified themselves. However, the more you understand the business you are getting into, the better the level of service you’ll be able to offer.

Select a Specialty

HVAC businesses tend to provide a range of different services to their clients. It is worth spending some of your time to work out what the strengths and weaknesses of your team are. Once you know what services your business is best at providing, you can then make sure that these services are at the forefront of your marketing efforts. For example, if the task or service that your team excels in is repairing the air conditioning in automobiles, promote this service above all others that you offer.

Know Your Limits

There is nothing wrong with accepting that your team simply doesn’t possess the necessary skills to undertake certain tasks. What you should not do is take on a task that you know you are ill equipped to complete, just because you don’t want to say no. There is a good chance that you will end up performing the task poorly and damaging your reputation in the process.

An HVAC business might not sound like the most exciting or glamorous job in the world. However, as a business venture, this is a really smart move. You will be entering into an industry which is in constant demand and, if you undertake HVAC training, you will learn a highly marketable skill.
