As an experienced HVAC contractor, you're probably aware that most homeowners aren't prepared to pay for the unexpected cost that an HVAC system in need of repair can bring. In fact, studies have shown that a third of homeowners don't have a planned way to pay for a project before speaking to a contractor. As an HVAC contractor, you can solve such problems by offering financing as part of your service.
