When deciding what service repair team you want to go with for your HVAC system, there are some key things you need to consider. However, one of the top issues we would suggest is pricing. You want to make sure you choose a company that offers flat rates instead of hourly ones. It can make a huge difference in the long run.
How Hourly Charges Work
When a team or contractor chooses to bill you hourly, you’re not paying for the job itself. You’re not paying for the task being completed, but for the time used to complete the job. For example, it may take you five minutes to make a PB&J sandwich, but it might take your teenager more like 10. You’re both doing the same amount of work, making the same finished product, but the amount of time spent is much different.
So when it comes to HVAC repair, you want to ensure that the person you hire is fast and efficient. Otherwise, you could be paying someone for five hours’ worth of work when you only need someone for two hours.
Flat Rate Pricing
Flat rate pricing, as opposed to hourly, takes on a whole other pay structure. Instead of paying for labor, you’re paying for the task completed. That means your contractor won’t dilly dally on the job. The tech is there to get a job done at a pricepoint, so he or she will be as efficient as possible.
Flat rate pricing is really the best way to go when hiring an HVAC contractor. It saves you money, saves the contractor time, and it gets your system up and running as quickly as possible.
