By expanding your team this year, you can keep up with the changing technology of the HVAC field and reach your technician goals with ease.
4. It’s an ‘IoT’ world
The ‘Internet of Things’ or ‘IoT’ is a growing factor of interest for HVAC businesses. The future of the field service industry looks like it will feature the ever popular Smart Technology for home and office building owners. From alarms to televisions and speakers, the IoT trend is steadily growing as businesses are looking for ways to save time and utilize their workspaces. You may just find a lot of your new leads this year will be in relation to the growing need for more technology.
5. Energy Efficient is in demand
For both HVAC franchises and small businesses, ‘going green’ is becoming more popular. With climate change impacts, ‘greener’ or more sustainable options are fast overtaking traditional HVAC systems. Customers from recent HVAC reports are looking into more energy efficient and greener options, despite the higher price tag.
6. Customers want a friendly face
This may come as no surprise, but customers are looking for more genuine interactions from services and a personal touch when it comes to businesses. Ensure that all your team is trained with the latest customer relationship management (CRM) to best maintain your customer’s loyalty.
7. Digital pay is IN
This is a trend not just focused on the HVAC industry, but you will find that more businesses worldwide are moving towards a cashless system. With HVAC accounting software you will find it easier to manage bills, send invoices and keep a balanced pay cycle no matter where you are.

Customers are preferring mobile communications such as SMS and emails over a phone call. More than ever our society is constantly on the go, so it’s no surprise your customers don’t have the time to answer all your phone calls.
