The Benefits Of Being A Tri-State Provider Of Air Conditioning

Posted on: 28 August 2019

If you are an HVAC contractor, you are fast approaching the slow-down of the cooling season, and the slow pick-up of the heating season. Somewhere in the middle will be that lull that most HVAC contractors and business owners dread. Some of them will offer support and services to a wide variety of consumers just to fill the lull, but if you work and reside in an area where three states (or more!) touch, you have a much bigger advantage than you realize. Here are the benefits of being a tri-state provider of air conditioning, particularly when one of those states is a southern one. 

Apart From Having to Acquire Licenses in All States, You Can Make the Most Money 

After you apply, secure, and pay for HVAC licenses in the three, four, or five states in which all corners of those states touch and the general region where you can provide services, you can make a lot of money regardless of what season it is. For example, if your actual office is in the northwestern corner of Illinois, but you are just a drive over a bridge or the Mississippi River to Missouri and Iowa, you can offer services to all of the cities within a fifty-mile radius of that general vicinity. As Iowa and Northern Illinois begin cooling off for fall, Missouri is still extremely warm and muggy. You will be handling cooling calls reaching into Missouri until your heating calls for Iowa and Illinois start coming in. You have the most opportunity to make the most money when your business extends to neighboring states. 

You Will Find More Customers and More Referrals 

Instead of limiting yourself and your business to just one state and one local area, you will have customers from many cities in the nearby states. You will find that you have more customers and more referrals as time goes on. This may warrant hiring a few extra HVAC technicians to handle all of the air conditioning and heating calls that come in, but you will never have to worry about going out of business. 

Bankruptcy? Not Likely!

Because you will have more business than you know what to do with, bankruptcy will be nearly impossible. Only poorly managed accounting and finances could cause a tri-state HVAC company to go out of business and file for bankruptcy. In fact, with the kind of continued and new business you can expect by expanding in this fashion, you could probably hire a part-time accountant to manage your books for you. 


Making Your Customers Comfortable

Starting a business is a monumental accomplishment. My mom and I have talked about opening a restaurant in the past. However, we haven’t ever worked up enough courage to turn our dreams into a reality. I admire anyone who has the nerve to risk financial security in order to become an entrepreneur. I do know, however, that if you’re beginning a new business establishment, one of your goals should be to make your customers comfortable as they shop around. You don't want them to get too hot, or too cold. Depending on where you live, this objective might be especially important during the hot summer months. On this blog, you will discover the best types of HVAC units to install in business establishments. Enjoy!
