There are tons of HVAC contractors out there, so it’s more important than ever to make your company stand out. One way to do this is by offering deregulated energy to your clients.

The addition of deregulated energy gives your business several unique advantages and more options to build stronger business. Let’s explore a few of them.

Easy Cash Flow

When you sell deregulated energy in addition to your core HVAC services, you have the opportunity to supplement your cash flow. You’ll earn commissions from all the deregulated energy you sell.

This can increase your cash flow significantly this way, allowing you to invest more into your business.

Unlock Bigger Opportunities

Increasing your cash flow is always great, but it’s not the only value of incorporating deregulated energy into your HVAC business. You can also use it to develop more opportunities for your business.

For example, let’s say you’ve got a client on the hook for a sizable project, but they can’t quite get the budget for it. By offering deregulated energy at a fraction of the rate your client is currently paying, you can help them open their budget enough to accommodate your HVAC job.

You can also build more trust with prospects and existing clients. With a solid energy affiliate program, you can offer rates up to 50% lower than your client’s existing energy costs. Over a year or two those savings can be enormous. And one of the best ways to build trust and better business relationships is to save people money.

Incentives for Clients

Another way to take advantage of deregulated energy for your HVAC business is to use your commissions for an incentive program.

For example, at BOX we’ve seen HVAC contractors offer a reduced price on HVAC services when a client purchases energy. For the client, this is a win-win: they save money on energy and they save money on their HVAC services. For you, this means you can close more jobs without losing your shirt.

Finding the Right Energy Program for Your Business

So what makes a good energy program for HVAC contractors?

  • First, it should be easy to use. You’re probably not an energy expert and you probably don’t have time to become one, so the program should be suitable for your knowledge of the energy sector.
  • It should provide truly competitive rates. Some programs inflate the prices to make big bucks, leaving you with rates that don’t sell.
  • It should offer a strong support team. If you’re just getting into selling energy, you might have a lot of questions and need some guidance. Don’t get left in the dust by poor support.
