I really feel bad for a lot of people nowadays when it comes to heating and cooling.
- It seems like a lot of people are low on money, but obviously have to have heaters and A/C working, and they have to spend money they don’t have in order to get it working.
I’ve had so many people tell me if they pay me, they’re not eating that day. I’ve also had people get mad at me, even though I am just the HVAC professional. They’ll blame me for the increase in HVAC prices, which I can’t control. But even though they get angry at me, I still feel bad for them, because it used to not be this way. It used to be where the HVAC prices were still high, but affordable. I have been a HVAC tech for the past 15 years, and when I first started out, I never had this issue. But as our competitors died out, my company started really raising the prices. Now we are the only HVAC corporation in the city, and because of that, we are flooded by tons of HVAC appointments. My boss wouldn’t like me saying this, but I kind of hope that another HVAC company moves here, because I am tired of all of the high prices. When telling my customer their prices, I usually give them a discount, but even then, it’s still incredibly expensive. If there was another cheaper HVAC place around here, I would see if I could get a job there. I just wish there was something I could do.
