What a Plumbing or HVAC Business Coach Should be Focused on in 2024

We have identified several times in this guide that the industry is shifting quickly. Many owners and operators of trades service businesses spend much of their time working in the business which can cause blindspots. A plumbing, HVAC, or electrical business coach who has been there should be keeping an eye on your:

The Best Plumbing Sales Training Isn’t Actually Sales Training

For many, the word “sales” implies convincing someone to buy something that they don’t need or want and using pressure to get them to do so. We despise unethical sales tactics, high-pressure tactics, and anything of the sort. When the word sales is used by Elite Trades, we are talking about the process of leading a client to a decision, regardless of what that decision is.

Elite Trades drives sales in plumbing companies we work with but not through sales training. This is because no self-respecting plumber actually wants to be a salesperson.

In fact, most of the plumbers we have worked with over our 20+ years of helping plumbing contractors dominate their market cringe at the word sales.

But here’s the thing; in order for there to be work for the plumber to complete, a sale must be made.

“So much of sales isn’t sales at all, it’s about doing the little things right, understanding the customer’s needs, being likable and respectful, and providing solutions to their problems.”

A Great Plumbing Salesperson Doesn’t Actually Sell Anything

The world’s highest-producing plumbing sales techs don’t really sell anything to the client. They simply develop a relationship with a customer, make the effort to discover what a client’s real needs are, and become the solution to them by offering options to solve the need.

“When plumbing sales is done correctly, you become an order taker, not a salesperson. This is what we teach at Elite Trades.”

Get Yourself and Your Team Ready for Increased Sales

The net result of implementing a proven plumbing sales process such as the one taught by Elite Trades will be more sales and, in turn, more work. It’s important to remember that adding sales and work to a company with sloppy operations can actually backfire and make the business worse off.

Make sure you can say YES to ALL of these questions before focusing on specific sales tactics for plumbers:

Do you have the right people on your team? 

For the same reason the defensive lineman on a football team isn’t allowed to play quarterback, it’s important to do an assessment of your team and identify the people who should be selling plumbing services and who should not.  

Do you have a uniform pricing process in place?

One of the most important parts of an ethical sales process is providing clear and transparent pricing. To have this, your business must have an established plumbing price book implemented.  

Are you setting expectations with the client when booking a lead?

You can dramatically improve the closing rate and average ticket of a plumbing salesperson simply by doing a better job setting clear expectations when booking the lead. Getting time commitments, booking with the decision-makers, and working around tight schedules will lift sales without any training. Elite Trades can help plumbing company owners implement call booking procedures that will dramatically increase plumbing sales.

Can you deliver what you are wanting to sell?

Often, plumbing company owners looking to elevate their plumbing sales through training get the cart before the horse. Selling a product or service requires setting an expectation with the client. If the company can’t deliver the expectation at or better than the expectations were established, the whole sales process backfires.

What Makes Plumbing Sales Training Different from Other Trades Sales Training?

A home’s plumbing system is vast and ranges from equipment to piping. The skills required to be a good plumbing salesperson are the same skills that are required to be good at selling anything. At Elite Trades, we have found training plumbing sales is different from training HVAC or electrical sales because of how different the circumstances are that prompt the sale.

Client Demeanor: The opportunity to sell plumbing services or replacements arises after something bad happens to the client. Something is broken, leaking, or backed up. The rudeness and inconvenience will impact the client’s demeanor. This is why good plumbing sales training focuses on solving the client’s problem, building relationships, and not making sales.

Lack of Research: As established above, most plumbing sales are made as a result of fixing a sudden problem, which means clients often don’t have the time they need to research the solution, compare options, and costs. This is why Elite Trades teaches its clients how to sell plumbing with transparency and upfront communication.

The Trade Itself: Industries like plumbing are not typically associated with the selling of products or equipment, as opposed to the HVAC industry. Crafting a sales training program specifically for plumbers is critical to gain buy-in from the team as well as get the results you want.

Repair vs. Replace: Increasing plumbing sales or average plumbing tickets comes right down to repair vs. replacement options for clients. Tried and tested sales training for plumbing companies should focus most of their attention on this principle.

The Amount of Opportunities: Because plumbing systems are large, there are many opportunities to sell plumbing services in the home. A good sales training system for plumbing companies will also teach how to identify opportunities that should be harvested today vs. ones that should be left alone.

The Basics of Plumbing Sales – Training 101

Before a client can do business with you, they must like and trust you. To establish trust and likability, you must be likable and trustworthy. It’s just that simple. Some things to help with that are:

  • A nice, firm handshake
  • Look the client in the eye
  • Smile
  • Pay them a sincere compliment
  • Respect the client and their home
  • Ask questions (God gave you two ears and one mouth)
  • Seek to serve the client’s best interest
  • Follow the golden rule
  • Show the client you care
  • Be the kind of guest you would want in your home

Before a client can do business with you, they must believe they need or want what you’re selling them. Sounds simple, right? In reality, many people think they know what they want and need before they call for service. A salesperson must help that client identify what they really want and need and do so in a manner that gains trust.

Before a client can do business with you, they must know how much what you’re selling costs. Simple, but true. Piggybacking off this principle, the client must also feel like the amount of money the product or service costs is equal to or greater than the money they have to exchange for it. Said another way, they have to see value.

Before a client can do business with you, they must know how they are going to pay for it. The “how to pay” part is not a huge factor in small items such as a pack of gum at a gas station, but shortly after a client decides they need or want what you’re recommending, they are asking themselves, “What are my options to pay for this?”

Before a client can do business with you, they must decide when they need to buy it. When you walk through the threshold of a door and the water heater is leaking like crazy, this question has already likely been answered in the mind of the client. However, if you find yourself closing down a sale on a water heater from a faucet repair call, you were involved in helping that client see they should buy a water heater today.

Focus on the 50% that Matter

Based on the experience Elite Trades has gathered, about 30-40% of people will buy anything a technician recommends as long as they like and trust the tech and can afford the recommendation. 10-20% of people can’t or won’t buy from you for reasons you or your technicians cannot control. This leaves the money zone, where the remaining 50-60% are sitting, waiting to be taken off the market by either you or your competition.

If You Don’t Want to Be a Salesperson, Don’t Act Like One

Hmmm… weird. It’s funny, some of the techs that provide the most resistance to sales training act the most like salespeople. Aside from not acting like the stereotypical salesperson, let’s look at the specific actions that can make or break how salesman-like you look:

  • You’re a plumber or HVAC tech or sales guy; wearing a suit makes you look like a salesman.
  • You don’t reference a written price book when you price something out.
  • What do you do when someone gives you literature or brochures? This is the same way your client will perceive this.
  • You layout “MENU Prices” for your clients to choose from and speak in terms of “good, better, best.”
  • Speaking from scripts or being scripted.

Build Your Plumbing Sale from a Solid Foundation

Plumbing Sales Process

  1. Build rapport & establish trust
  2. Identify problems & present solutions
  3. Ask for the opportunity to service them

Build Rapport with Proper FORM

Rapport: noun – A close and harmonious relationship in which the people or groups concerned understand each other’s feelings or ideas and communicate well. In Elite Trades language, this is the first step to funnel flipping. It’s the art of getting people to like and trust you and see you as a solution to a problem, not a salesman. The acronym FORM is a great way to start building the foundation real rapport is built on.

FORM stands for:

Family: Is there anything more important to someone? Developing conversation and asking thoughtful questions about your client’s family is a direct way to build strong rapport. People love to talk about family.

Occupation: Since we spend more than 1/3 of our lives at work, engaging a client about what they do for a living is a great conversation starter and may lead to other more personal conversation topics. “So, did you take the day off of work today?” “What keeps you busy during the day?”

Recreation: We may spend 1/3 of our life at work and 1/3 of our time sleeping, but what we choose to do with the other 1/3 of our life is a topic anyone loves to chat about. Developing recreational topics will require being observant. Kayaks hanging in the garage? A fully set-up workout room? Pictures on a beach?

Material Possessions: People like things. The things people choose to have around will tell you a lot about them. If done correctly, conversations about the things someone owns not only build relationships, but it will tell you a lot about what makes the client tick.

Present Solutions Using FBDBQ – Feature, Benefit, Different, Better, Questions

Often while selling plumbing services, plumbers get fixated on the features of a product. The feature is an actual part of the product that makes it better. Let’s say, for example, we’re talking about a water heater with two anode rods in it. The feature is the double anode rod. The benefit is what the feature does for the consumer. This is what your clients really care about, and salespeople often miss talking about the benefit. So, what’s the benefit of the double anode rod water heater? Longer tank life. Then we get to the different and better part. Is the feature that provides the benefit different or better than other products on the market? If so, how? And the last part is to close with a question. The question can be a confirmation question or a “do you want to move forward” question. Put it all together, and this is what you get:

“Betty, since you barely got out of the warranty period with your last water heater, the one I’m recommending we install today has a dual anode rod system. The job of an anode rod is to sacrifice itself to protect the tank from breaking down and leaking. And when you have dual anode rods, this protects the tank for twice as long. A typical “builder” model water heater only comes with one, so as you can see, this heater I’m prepared to install today is designed for professional use. Does having me install a water heater with a dual anode rod today sound like the best plan to you?” And there you have it. FBDBQ. Use them.

Which Way is the Funnel?

Plumbing Sales Training

If you view your client’s mind as a funnel because of normal sales resistance, the funnel is skinny side up. I also know that my ability to close the sale will be largely dependent on how much of my thoughts, ideas, and emotions I pour into that client’s funnel. Starting to see where this is going? The process of flipping a client’s funnel is simple, and teaching the major principles behind the skill of funnel flipping is the core purpose of this manual.

Provide the Client Options

By providing repair and replacement options to your clients, you are giving them the power to choose the option that is right for them and their budget when conducting plumbing sales training.

Handling Plumbing Sales Objections

Sales objections are simply questions or concerns that a client may have during the interaction. Read our in-depth guide about handling sales objections for the trades, or simply consider these key points:

The best way to handle an objection that comes up in a plumbing sales call is to avoid it.

Do this by following the principles we have outlined in this blog and in other Elite Trade publications.

The universal recipe for handling plumbing sales objections is:

  1. Listen to understand the client’s concern.
  2. Repeat the concern back to the client to ensure you understand it.
  3. Determine if the objection should be handled now, later, or not at all.
  4. Answer the client’s question or deploy an objection handling technique.
  5. Confirm the objection has been handled.

Closing the Plumbing Sale

We cover the topic of closing plumbing sales in depth in the Be Elite – Closing Plumbing Sales blog post. Some of the highlights you’ll find in that guide are:

  • Most missed plumbing sales are simply the result of not asking the client for their business.
  • Closing the plumbing sale (asking for the business) is the easiest part of the sales process if you execute the sales process correctly.
  • If you feel like you have to push for the sale at the end of the plumbing sales call, something else went wrong during the visit with the client.

“Elite Trades teaches plumbing contractors and their team to become plumbing solution order takers, not to be pushy salespeople trying to close deals.”

What to Consider When Hiring a Plumbing Sales Trainer

Bringing in a sales trainer to work with your plumbing techs and salespeople can be the key to driving the sales results you’re looking for. Bringing on the wrong one can be a complete disaster as well. Here is what to look for:

Does the trainer have specific plumbing experience?

Many sales trainers believe that because sales is universal, anyone can train plumbers. In our 20+ years of training plumbers, we know this is not true. For the best results, you should deliver training directly to your team, and if you get a sales trainer involved, it’s critical to make sure they are or recently were a wrench-spinning plumber.

Alignment with Core Values

Does the sales trainer align with your and the company’s vision and core values? Getting a sales trainer onboard who doesn’t will have a negative sales impact on the company and will create many cultural issues.

Online or In-Person

Both online sales training and in-person sales training for plumbers have pros and cons. Either way, at Elite Trades, we have found a combination of both to make the largest difference in sales across plumbing companies all over the US.

Where Can You Find the Best Plumbing Sales Training?

There are dozens of credible sales trainers for plumbers and plumbing companies out there. Elite Trades is highly regarded as one of them but takes a unique approach with all of our training.

“We believe that plumbing companies should be led by their owners (or managers) and have found that sales training delivered by a well-trained owner or manager is much more effective than sales training presented by a 3rd party.”

This is why our training programs are more focused on training the trainers vs. training the actual plumbing salesperson or plumbing technician.

Not only do we provide sales training for plumbers, but we also specialize in HVAC sales training, electrical sales training as well as sales training for water conditioning contractors and well & pump industry.

Be Elite and Practice Ethical Plumbing Sales Training

Ethics when selling anything, specifically in home services such as plumbing, is paramount. By following the principles and tactics outlined in this guide, you can ensure that the sales training being delivered to your team will not only produce sales results but will result in happy repeat clients.

Plumbing Price Books

For plumbing business owners, the difference between profit and loss often hinges on the accuracy and detail of their pricing strategies. A well-crafted plumbing price book, also commonly called a plumbing flat rate price book, is much more than a list of services and prices: it’s a critical sales tool that drives efficiency, customer satisfaction, increases profitability, and allows for scalability. In this Be Elite Guide, we dive deep into what makes a successful plumbing price book, offering guidance on building, integrating, and optimizing your plumbing price book so it gets you and your customers what they want.

Without a Price Book, You Can’t Scale

A plumbing price book is the cornerstone of a scalable, profitable, and healthy trades service company. It makes selling plumbing services (and, in turn, buying the services you offer) easy for your customer. For plumbers looking for flat rate pricing, this plumbers’ flat rate pricing tool helps standardize pricing across the business, ensuring consistency and transparency in customer charges. Effective price books cover various services from simple repairs to full installations, each tailored to reflect the cost of labor, materials, overhead, and desired profit margins.

Why Proper Pricing is Crucial

If you do not price your services properly, your business will fail. Despite this undisputed law of business, improper pricing plagues many home service businesses. Avoiding failure at business should be motivation enough, but let’s take a look at some of the other primary benefits of being priced properly and using a price book:
  • Protects Profits: Ensures every job is profitable.
  • Increases Professionalism: Enhances the perception of your business.
  • Establishes Trust with Clients: Clear, upfront pricing builds confidence.
  • Improves Cash Flow: Eliminates or greatly reduces receivables.
  • Reduces Administrative Burden: Cuts down on office/admin time related to invoicing.
  • Prevents Billing Mistakes: Reduces errors and client disputes.
  • Holds Team Accountable: Standardized pricing means clear expectations for staff.
  • Enhances Employee Trust: Transparent pricing systems foster a better working environment.

Why Plumbing Companies Don’t Have a Price Book

At Elite Trades, we have been working with plumbing companies and their owners for over 20 years and have found the leading causes for not having a plumbing price book or pricing strategy include:
  • Lack of time to build the price book
  • Lack of resources to implement the price book
  • Absence of data needed to compile accurate pricing
  • Fear of flat rate pricing
“Working with Elite Trades eliminates these leading reasons plumbing companies don’t have an organized well-thought-out price guide or flat rate book. We walk our clients through the process step by step ensuring their pricing is fair, consistent, and loaded into their software so techs can apply it.”

Creating Your Plumbing Price Book with Elite Trades

We believe so strongly in proper pricing, we’ll even give you a free plumbing price book. Proper pricing means setting prices that produce happy clients, happy employees, and profit all at the same time. Calculating this requires specific details about your company, your people, and your market. Elite Trades helps plumbing company business owners develop and implement proper pricing.

1) Categorize Your Price Book: Must-Have Categories

Putting together a price book that is easy to use will be key in how successful you’ll be in training your team of plumbing technicians to use it. During our 25+ years of working with and building some of the most elite plumbing companies in the US, we have found the following must-have categories or sections for your plumbing price guide:

Service & Diagnostic Fees

  • Initial Service Call Fees: Trip charges, dispatch fees, or any other fee you charge on a service call.
  • Diagnostic Assessments: Troubleshooting fees, advanced diagnostics, leak searching, and all other costs related to finding the cause of a plumbing problem or building out the solutions.
  • Emergency Service Rates: Premium charges for urgent services outside normal business hours.

Plumbing Repairs

  • Water, Gas & Drain Pipe Repairs: List out and subcategorize all the different plumbing pipe repairs you make to water, gas, and drain distribution piping, including leak repairs.
  • Sewer & Drain Cleaning: Include toilet stoppages, fixture stoppages, as well as main line drain clearing tasks.
  • Fixture Repairs: Categorize all repairs you perform on typical plumbing fixtures like kitchen, lavatory, and tub/shower faucet repairs, toilet repairs, and other routine fixture services.
  • Sump & Sewage Repairs: If you offer sump pump services and perform repairs on them, include float replacements, alarms, and check valves.
  • Plumbing Equipment Repairs: All repairs made to water heaters, water softeners, well systems, or any other plumbing equipment your company services.

Plumbing Replacements

  • Water Heater Replacement: List all the different types of water heater replacements you offer, such as gas, electric, and tankless.
  • Toilet Replacement: Include all options for replacing a client’s toilet with a new one.
  • Sump & Sewage Replacement: All sewage pumps, sump pumps, and effluent pump replacements offered and available to clients.
  • Faucet Replacement: Keep kitchen faucet, lavatory faucet, and tub/shower replacements all in the same section of the price guide for ease.
  • Water Conditioning: Replacement water softeners, iron filters, RO systems, and other water treatment replacements.

Plumbing Installation, Remodel & Re-pipes

  • New Installations: If your company commonly installs plumbing where there isn’t current plumbing, a new installation section of the price book is a great idea.
  • Remodels: For plumbing companies looking for price book solutions for their remodeling services, a well-defined and built-out section makes pricing and finding these services seamless for the sales tech and customer.
  • Water & Drain Repiping: The infrastructure of a home’s plumbing system is the water and drain piping system. Tremendous opportunity lies in the replacement and repiping of these systems.

2) Build the Tasks: What Services to Include

Building out the tasks in your price book is a two-step process. The first step is simply deciding what services you will list in your price book and which ones you will not.
  • Focus on building tasks for your most common plumbing services.
  • Base the tasks in your plumbing price book on the inventory you carry.
  • Build universal tasks that help cover repairs that don’t fit into a specific category because you won’t be able to have a task in the price book for every single service you offer.

3) Pricing Strategy: Setting Your Rates & Markups

There are many variables to consider when setting your pricing rates, including:
  • Direct costs of labor for primary techs
  • Direct costs of labor for secondary/helper techs
  • Exact benefit burdens
  • Market conditions
  • Company image and market perception
  • Vehicle types and inventory
  • Accepted payment types
  • Business stability and mode (growth, maintenance, repair)
These factors, plus a step-by-step process for determining exactly how much to charge for plumbing services, can be found in our Setting Your Rates Guide.

4) Use Software Tools to Make Price Book Building Easy

Modern software solutions can automate much of this process, providing templates and calculative tools that simplify data entry and pricing strategy development. For example, our Plumbing Price Book Builder, which we offer for free, is:
  • Simple to use
  • Able to be printed or uploaded to any software
  • Completely customizable
  • Filled with hundreds of tasks already loaded into it
  • Not a glitchy app to download and doesn’t require special software
  • Applicable for time and material pricing or fixed fee pricing
  • Guaranteed to ensure pricing consistency
  • Designed to protect your profit margins
  • Ensuring you’re charging the right amount—not too much, and not too little

5) Training and Engaging Your Team

Training Technicians and Sales Teams
  • Train weekly with your team on how to use the price book properly. Highlight the importance of customer engagement and transparency.
  • Use role play to create real life engagements between technicians where the price book can be applied.
Employee Feedback on Pricing
  • Gather feedback from employees who use the price book daily.
  • Utilize this feedback to enhance pricing accuracy and service delivery.

Integrating Your Plumbing Pricing Guide with Software

The integration of your price book with business management software like Housecall Pro or ServiceTitan can dramatically enhance operational efficiency. Here’s how:

  • Simple integration process
  • Easy to maintain, organize, and add to

Best Price Book Solutions for Plumbers

There is no shortage of price book solutions for plumbing contractors out there, each with advantages and disadvantages. The decision to choose one price book product often boils down to a current affiliation with a software company, ease of use, and cost.
Elite Tip: Forgo paying extra for a price book product. Instead, invest the time and money into building your own customized plumbing price book. This ensures it has exactly what you need in it and will make implementing and training your techs much easier.

ServiceTitan – Price Book Pro

ServiceTitan has a paid product that directly integrates with their software, coming as a prebuilt online plumbing flat rate or time and materials price book.

House Call Pro

House Call Pro Focuses on ease of use and mobile access, ideal for businesses seeking straightforward, effective solutions.

Profit Rhino

An online plumbing flat rate software known for its vast template library and customizable options, making it suitable for plumbers wanting extensive control over their pricing structures.

Elite Trades Price Book

A unique solution providing specialized features designed to meet the specific needs of plumbing contractors. Built to optimize pricing accuracy and for upload into major softwares such as ServiceTitan or Housecall Pro.

Managing Your Plumbing Price Book for Long-Term Success

Building a plumbing price book is not a one-off project. In fact, the price book that houses the selling prices for all of your plumbing services is a living, breathing organic part of your business. To ensure that your price book ebbs and flows with the normal cadence of your business, follow these Elite Trades tips:

Update Material & Equipment Costs Monthly:

If your price book is dynamic and has the ability to update as the prices you pay for both equipment and materials change, make sure you are updating these costs at least on a monthly basis.

Keep Your Eye on the Market:

It’s important to keep an eye on your close competitors, but don’t put too much weight on what they are doing. Too many plumbing companies let what other companies charge for services dictate what they charge for services.
“If you are going to base your price points on someone else in your market, make sure that competitor and how they go to the market is what you as a home service business owner are aiming to achieve based on size, market dominance, and service offerings”, says Elite Trades CEO and Master Strategist, Eric Smith.

Use Technology:

The free price book builder and pricing calculator Elite Trades provides its clients is a leader of the pack when it comes to ease of use and universal integrations, but is far from the cutting edge of technology. Software and tools such as ServiceTitan and Housecall Pro provide a technology platform that helps with maintaining a price book in today’s day and age. Make sure your plumbing company keeps up with the latest technology so your plumbing price guide is up to date with the latest technology.

Ethical Sales Strategies for Home Service Contractors

There is no shortage of snake oil selling shady sales tactics being taught to thousands of plumbing, heating, air conditioning and electrical technicians across the country. Unfortunately, the large majority of these sales training for plumbers and sales training for HVAC technician programs either directly or indirectly result in unethical sales behavior. 

Unethical sales tactics used by plumbers or HVAC technicians in the home will quickly destroy a company culture and tank the business over time. At Elite Trades, we believe in only one type of sales approach and that is an ethical sales approach. 

In this roadmap to ethical sales for plumbers and HVAC techs, we explore what causes unethical sales practices and how to develop an ethical sales process that fits well with your company and culture.  

What breeds unethical sales in home service companies and how to prevent it-

In order to prevent unethical sales behaviors in your plumbing or HVAC company, let’s do a deep dive into the five most common causes that often result in unethical sales practices by plumbing technicians and plumbing, heating and air conditioning salespeople.

1. Leadership that focuses on revenue first and the bottom line second 

Don’t get us wrong, revenue and the bottom line matter a lot in the plumbing and HVAC business. But there is a lot before and in between revenue and the bottom line profitability of a plumbing, heating and air conditioning company that should be focused on that will result in more of both. Plumbing & HVAC company owners, managers, or leaders that obsess over sales goals or revenue targets portray the image to the company that all they care about is money. 

How to prevent this in your plumbing, heating & air conditioning company? 

  • Take a look inward- If you’re the owner of a trades service company, take a look inward on how you approach the topic of revenue, sales and profits. How would your team describe your relationship with sales, revenue or profits? 
  • Focus on the client experience and revenue will follow- Instead of focusing on making the sale or top line revenue, focus on improving the client experience. This will automatically result in more revenue but will prevent creating a toxic and unethical sales approach. 

2. Paying techs solely based on sales

There, we said it. There is no doubt about the fact that paying plumbers, heating or cooling techs, electricians or any in-home tradesperson solely based on what they sell has the high and likely probable outcome of breeding unethical sales practices, not to mention tainting a company culture and causing a plethora of other issues. While motivating technicians to be productive and sell work is critical for plumbing and HVAC companies, there are ways to do so while avoiding enabling or encouraging unethical sales practices. 

How to prevent how you pay your plumbing & HVAC techs from resulting in shady sales tactics?

  • Keep sales incentives in check– There is nothing wrong with sales incentive, bonus or rewards for outstanding performance, but make sure they stay incentives and do not make up the large majority of plumbers or HVAC techs income. 
  • Avoid “if you sell this, you will get that” commissions- Too many plumbing and HVAC company owners use the carrot and stick method far too often. If you sell a (pick your job), I will pay you (pick the reward). The problem with this lies at the core of how the reward is based.
  • Reward consistency- If you feel the need to pay commission, bonus or other forms of sales incentives, make sure they reward consistent performance. Consistent sales performance is a sign of doing the right thing for clients. Sales performance that ebbs and flows based on a techs need of income will often be at the expense of ethical sales tactics. 

3. Lack of training, systems, procedures & accountability 

There is a lot to unpack in this leading cause of unethical sales practices in home service companies, but in this guide we will keep it high level. In our evaluation of hundreds of plumbing and HVAC companies that are suffering from unethical sales processes, one common thread is a lack of ethical sales training, general systems and operations, and accountability. This lack of overall management leads to the “wild wild west” where anything goes… as long as revenue is being hit and sales are made. 

How to prevent a lack of training, operations, and accountability in your plumbing or HVAC business from developing unethical sales practices?

  • Deliver in house sales training– So many business owners leave sales training to a 3rd party. At Elite Trades, one of the most common requests we get is, “Can you train my HVAC or plumbing technicians to sell?” The answer is yes we can, but if you want to make sure sales are being done correctly, this sales training should be delivered by an owner or manager of the business, not a sales trainer. 
  • Develop systems and procedures- Operational excellence is where Elite Trades clients excel. Make sure you have systems in place for your plumbing and electrical business that cover how a service call should be run as well as how you want products and services quoted and ultimately sold to your customers.
  • Have a comprehensive price book- Many techs and salespeople cross the line into the unethical side because the company doesn’t have clear and upfront procedures to price jobs. Develop a price book that everyone must follow and you will be one step closer to selling plumbing and HVAC services ethically. 
  • Hold your techs accountable- Not just to “sales numbers or quotas”, but to toeing the company line as we like to say. Make sure that you’re keeping an eye on not just the sales and revenue performance but also keeping an eye on how they follow the other systems and procedures of the company. 

4. Hiring the wrong people

The shortage of plumbers, electricians, and HVAC technicians is no joke, and for many HVAC and plumbing companies this challenge has lowered the bar as far as the quality of people that get hired to fill important positions in a home service company. 

How to prevent hiring the wrong people from causing unethical sales in your plumbing, heating and air business?

  • Don’t hire the wrong people- Have some integrity. Hold yourself accountable. If you are the owner or manager of a home service business, simply do not hire someone that doesn’t exactly fit what you’re looking for. Doing so will almost certainly cause you issues in more ways than one in the future. 
  • Be patient and make new hires earn it- Far too many plumbing company owners (guilty as charged at times) put people in roles that they are simply not ready for. As you develop your team, be patient no matter how busy you are. Make sure they are the right person for the position and can be trusted with the responsibility and power that their position comes with. 

5. Poor company culture  

It’s rare that a company with a solid company culture has a widespread issue with unethical sales tactics but it does happen. More often than not, an overall shortfall in company standards and overall culture is the root cause of poor and unethical sales tactics. 

How to keep poor company culture from manifesting in unethical sales practices?

  • Develop a code of ethics- Not only should you develop a code of ethics for your plumbing and electrical company, but it should be published in your building and on your website. Having a code of ethics that everyone in the company agrees to will improve culture and keep everyone on the same moral playing field.
  • Terminate problem employees– Most companies with any size to them have a handful of employees that are more trouble than they are worth. They get kept on the roster for various reasons but often the real result of keeping them around comes at the expense of having a healthy culture. If you have any bad seeds on the team and want to improve the culture of your plumbing, heating or air conditioning company, let them go. You’ll both be better off.
  • Set the bar high and lead by example- Very few people in this world respect an owner or leader that doesn’t set and lead by example. If you want to change the culture of your company, it starts with you.

Key Components to an Ethical Home Service Sales Strategy

Now that we have covered what leads to unethical sales behavior and how to prevent creating that in your plumbing, heating, air & electrical business, let’s get to why you’re really here. Let’s break down the critical parts of an ethical plumbing, heating, air conditioning and electrical sales strategy. 

1. Put the clients best interest first

Ethical sales practices for plumbing and HVAC techs starts with making sure that everything we do, say and recommend to a client is done so while having their best interest in mind. This means in order to make recommendations to them we need to understand them, their problems and priorities. 

To ensure you have the clients best interest in mind when making a recommendation to them:

  • Be sure you fully understand the problem the client is looking to solve
  • Learn what is important to them when it comes to their plumbing or HVAC system 
  • Make recommendations to them as if you were in their shoes based on their needs, wants, specific problem and if applicable, budget

2. Follow a plumbing or HVAC sales process

Wait, we’re talking about ethical sales tactics for plumbers and HVAC techs. How does a sales process fit into being ethical? Having a map or guide to follow during the service or sales call is critical to being ethical. Treating each iteration with a customer the same ensures that you’re doing the right thing each and every time with each customer. 

To ensure your plumbing or HVAC sales process is ethical:

  • Start by understanding the problem- Be sure it starts with thorough diagnosis of the clients plumbing, heating or cooling problem, or whatever problem you’re in the home to solve 
  • Be sure you build a relationship with the client-  Understanding the problem is great, but we also have to have a relationship with our client so we can understand them, and their needs, wants and budget. 
  • Present all options- We will get into this a bit deeper a little later in the article, but make sure when it comes to presenting options, you give the client all of them. Even the cheap ones. 
  • Build detailed estimates- Want to be ethical in your sales process? Learn to be an expert in communication. In plumbing and HVAC sales, the detail in your written communication is as or more important than your verbal. Make sure your estimates are detailed, upfront and set a clear understanding of the scope of work. 
  • Ask for the clients business, but don’t be pushy- Asking a client to move forward with work is not unethical at all. However, being pushy is. If you feel like you’re being a salesman, you’re probably pushing too much. Simply ask the client for their business and accept their answer with a smile. 
  •  

3. Respect the price book

Respecting the price book is critical to be an ethical salesperson in HVAC, plumbing or electrical. For the purpose of this paragraph, we’re going to assume that your company has one. If it does not, visit our price book page and we will help you! 

  • Do not charge people more than what is listed in the price book- Unless a tech is paid on sales, this rarely happens because most good and moral people want to do right by their customers. However, an ethical plumbing or HVAC technician never charges a client more than what is printed in the price book for the specific job unless the actual scope of the job is outside what the task covers. 
  • Do not charge people LESS than what is in the price book- Charging clients less or “giving people a deal” is as unethical as charging some people more. 
  • Honor discounts and specials- This seems basic, but if your company is offering a discount, credit or rebate on the plumbing or HVAC services you are selling, be sure to offer that discount to every customer that you see. 

4. Shoot straight with customers

This also seems like an elementary principle, but many plumbers and HVAC techs like to over complicate the sales and communication process with customers. The simplest way to communicate with clients is upfront and straightforward. 

  • Do not speak down to your clients- As tradespeople, we know a lot about many things that most people know nothing about, which makes it easy to accidentally talk down to our customers. Make sure you are aware of this danger and focus on providing information to your customers in a way that makes them comfortable with you and doesn’t make them feel talked down to. 
  • Say it like it is, but in a nice way- No one likes a silver tongued salesman and no one likes a rude and gruff know-it-all. The halfway point in plumbing and HVAC sales is to shoot your customers straight, tell them like it is, and be nice about it.
  • Provide clear and direct next steps- Clients get to make many decisions, which we will cover in step number five, but it’s important to eliminate any decision making confusion when it comes to next steps. As the professional in the home, they are leaning on you to provide them with clear and direct next steps so that they can solve the plumbing or HVAC problem they called you out to solve. 
  • Say it how it feels best to you- So many plumbing and HVAC sales trainers focus on scripts. “This is what you have to say and here is how you have to say it.” Trying to use words that are not your own and put thoughts together that you do not agree with will come off as phony, sleazy and unethical. A key component of ethical plumbing and HVAC sales is using your own words. 

5. Let your customers make the decision that is right for them

At the very core of every home service strategy based on serving the best interest of the client and adhering to the most ethical sales process possible is leaving the final decision to the client. In order to do this, we must understand that as plumbers, HVAC technicians and electricians as it relates to the sales process, our job is to let clients know what options they have, discuss the pros and cons of each option and leave the final decision to them. 

To ensure your customers have all the information they need to make the right buying decision:

  • Perform a thorough evaluation of their plumbing or HVAC problem
  • Think about what is wrong, what happened to cause the problem and if there is anything that could have been done to prevent it as you formulate a plan to resolve the issue 
  • Learn about their needs, wants, budget and long term plan for the home
  • Provide them all of their options up front and in writing
  • Be sure all repair options and replacements clearly outline what is included in the price and any other major details of work
  • Discuss pros and cons of each option you have come up with 
  • Discuss payment options and financing, if available
  • Ask the client for their business and respect their decision 

6. Follow the golden rule

We will just leave number six alone, as it speaks for itself.

Consulting For Home Service Contractors

In this “Be Elite In The Trades” guide, our Master Consultant outlines why the country’s most elite home service operators align with an industry-leading consulting firm and how Elite Trades has elevated itself to the best-in-class solution for plumbers, HVAC, electrical, water conditioning, and water well contractors looking for a strategic business consultant.

Home Service Consultants Supercharge Growth

Managing a business in the ever-changing industries of plumbing, HVAC, electrical, or any home service industry demands more than just operational expertise; it requires world-class strategic foresight and a robust toolbelt of business acumen.

Home service contractors and other trades service companies will be successful in their own right without the help of a consultant; however, the learning curve is shortened substantially, and top and bottom line growth is supercharged with the help of a good consultant.

“Being a good plumber or HVAC tech and showing up on time isn’t going to cut it in today’s day and age,” says Elite Trades CEO, Eric Smith. “To be relevant in your market and be a company the best tradesmen in a market want to be with, you must be a world-class operator, marketer, recruiter, trainer, and leader.”

Elite Trades stands as the leading consultancy for the most successful, operationally elite, and profitable home service companies across the US, offering unparalleled expertise to remain nimble in the complex market, drive significant growth, and build a culture that lasts for generations.

The Unique Elite Trades Consulting Approach

Elite Trades is synonymous with excellence, guiding top-tier home service companies to dominate their markets through innovative strategies and impeccable execution. In a day and age where very few practice what they preach, Elite Trades towers over the typical plumbing, HVAC, or electrical business consultant through its private ownership and operation of multiple multi-trade home service businesses.

Hands-on Implementation

Unlike typical consultants who commonly sit behind a desk and offer dusty advice, Elite Trades prides itself on one of its core values: Action.

“As a consultant, it’s easy to point at a problem and say that it needs to be fixed. I think that’s the root reason why I get insulted when someone calls me their consultant. Yes, we wear the consultant hat but pride ourselves on rolling up our sleeves after we have pointed the finger. We have a strong affinity for action and implementing solutions. We don’t just tell you what needs to be done; we show you how and help execute these strategies alongside your team,” Smith says.

Customized Strategies for Home Service Business Consulting

One size fits all consulting for plumbers, HVAC businesses, electrical contractors, and all multi-trade home service companies flat out doesn’t work. Recognizing that no two businesses are the same nor are two markets, we tailor our approach to meet the specific needs and challenges of our client’s business, ensuring optimal effectiveness.

“Custom tailoring our consulting services to the specific goals and needs of our clients and their plumbing, heating, air conditioning, electrical, well, or water conditioning company is the foundation for how we’re able to offer a 100% money-back guarantee.”

Navigating 2024’s Business Climate

In the ever-evolving landscape of 2024, working with industry-leading consultants is not just an advantage—it’s a necessity. Elite Trades prepares your business to not only meet the challenges of today but excel in the foreseeable future.

What should the industry-leading consultants be focused on in 2024?

  • Softening overall demand for home services
  • Increasing costs of materials and labor
  • Recruiting the upcoming crop of apprentices
  • Changes to digital marketing and the impact AI is having on it
  • And many other plumbing, heating, air conditioning, electrical, water conditioning and home service issues.

Elite Trades Specializes In Multi-Trade Consulting

Largely the consulting Elite Trades provides HVAC contractors with is the same as we apply in our plumbing contractors and electrical contractors, but there are some specific consulting niches that individual trades require.

Plumbing Business Consulting:

Elite Trades works with some of the most successful and dominant plumbing brands in the country and has influence in their operations, marketing, recruiting, training, sales, and all other major facets of day-to-day operations.

HVAC Business Consulting:

The HVAC business is the cornerstone of many home service companies and from a consulting perspective requires the unique skill set that only Elite Trades can provide. We work hand in hand with HVAC contractors to work through some of the most common sales, marketing, and operational challenges HVAC contractors face due to workforce shortages and the swings in demand. The turnkey systems Elite Trades offers help HVAC companies dial in efficiency, capitalize on opportunities, sell maintenance club members, and drive top revenue and bottom-line profits. The impact we have on HVAC companies allows our clients to not only grow their business but to be in a position to scale. 

Electrical Company Consulting:

No matter if your electrical division is a tuck-in trade or the core of your home service business, the electrical business consultants at Elite Trades help build pricing, procedures, and all other tools it takes to excel in this space. Electrical, although commonly considered one of the major 3 trades, is unique in many aspects due to the preventive and want-based lead generation and long lifecycle of electrical systems.

Consultants that specialize in well drilling and water well services are unicorns. At Elite Trades, we specialize in the water well industry and help apply our consulting strategies that in turn build highly profitable and advanced water well service businesses.

For water conditioning and filtration companies wanting to make a real difference in their market dominance, Elite Trades provides the unfair advantage.

Elite Trades offers insights into innovative maintenance techniques and customer service excellence that enhance reliability and trust.

The Ultimate Pricing Guide for Plumbing, HVAC, and Electrical Services

Protect your customers and your profits when pricing a plumbing, heating, air conditioning, well, electrical or water conditioning service, repair, installation, or any other home service job by following this Be Elite In Trades On Point Pricing Guide. 

This guide for home service contractors is long and gets deep into the weeds on the specifics of how to calculate the selling price of any plumbing, HVAC, or electrical job that you do, no matter if your focus is service or major new construction work. Here is some extra motivation to take control of your company’s pricing today.

This guide is 100% written by a human that happens to also be a lifelong owner and operator of highly successful plumbing contractors, HVAC contractors, well & water contractors and electrical contractors throughout the US.

Key takeaways discussed & supported in this guide:

  • The methods taught in this pricing guide focus on ethical pricing practices that are designed to protect both your customers from over paying and your home service business’s bottom line profitability.
  • Focus on how to set prices for any plumbing, HVAC or electrical job, service or repair regardless of if you charge by the hour or flat-rate. We break out how to set your hourly rates, how much to mark up your average costs, how to cover additional materials, as well as how to ensure competitive pricing that is in line with plumbing industry standards.
  • Pricing your home services using the methods taught in this guide will result in fair prices for your customers and employees, while providing the profits needed to reward the company’s future and financial growth. 
  • The principles in this guide apply to the plumbing, heating, air conditioning, water well, and water treatment industries and can be used in multi-trade home service businesses as well.

How MUCH to charge is different than HOW you charge

This guide focuses on HOW MUCH TO CHARGE for plumbing, HVAC & electrical jobs, services, repairs, and really all things home or trades services related. 

The debate boils down to the method used to take the prices you charge to the market in this decision: is it better to charge your customers by the hour for plumbing services (time & material pricing) or provide an all in one price upfront for services (flat-rate pricing)? This debate is covered independently in this article where we dissect the differences between these different ways to take your prices to the market. Link to article 

Be fair to your customers and company by keeping COGS below 50% of the selling price of the job

COGS, also known as the cost of goods sold, refers to the direct wages and labor paid to complete the work and the specific parts, equipment and materials used during the job. Keeping both labor and materials below 50% will ensure that you are selling your plumbing services at a 50% or higher gross margin.  

  • Manage your non-loaded labor costs to less than 25% of the total selling price of the job. 20% is ideal.
  • Keep your cost of materials, parts & equipment to a maximum of 25% of the selling price of the job.

The Three Most Important Reasons to Price Your Projects Correctly 

The #1 reason small businesses fail is due to a lack of cash flow

At the absolute core of a company’s cash flow is how it prices its services. If a home services job is priced too low, there simply won’t be enough profit left at the end of the job to create any extra cash flow. 

Sources for this static include: 

U.S Small Business Administration- Why do businesses close? 

Investopedia- The 4 most common reasons a small business fails

Price is the most common complaint after service is complete

This is true for all common pricing methods (time & materials pricing and flat-rate pricing) used by home service contractors. At the core of almost every customer complaint or concern that comes up after a plumbing or HVAC service is complete is the price of the job. Often the customer will not lead with the price concern but it does play a factor in every customer service situation.

Charging customers fairly (and being charged fairly if you’re a customer) is paramount 

To the elite contractors we work with, there is nothing more important to them than their reputation. These contractors want to charge customers fairly for plumbing jobs and leave their clients feeling that they got a fair value, not ripped off. If you want to deliver a high level of customer satisfaction through simple and upfront dedication to customer service, then make your prices for service plumbing or any type of plumbing work guide your clients toward outstanding customer service.

Don’t let these common hurdles hold you back from pricing the home services you provide fairly  

So if pricing services properly is critical to both customer satisfaction and your business’s financial health, why don’t more plumbers focus on their pricing method? 

Lack of discipline:

Most plumbing, HVAC and electrical business owners blame a lack of time on why they haven’t taken control of their pricing methods. But in reality, the problem is a lack of discipline to make time. Building a pricing process that protects your customers and the profits of your plumbing company is hard, and it takes time. Do the work now and your customers will reap the benefits. 

ELITE TIP: Elite Trades can shoulder a ton of this load with and for you. Want to learn about our price book building services?

Lack of financial data and other information: 

The formula to price plumbing repairs, heating repairs, cooling repairs and electrical repairs is really very simple but the input to put into a pricing calculator requires additional data and the ability to calculate overhead costs, profit margins, hourly rates and more. We will cover the required data point throughout this pricing guide and provide guidance and ways to estimate some data points in their absence.

No way to keep pricing organized:

Fair and balanced pricing is based on real factors inside your plumbing company such as labor costs, benefits, material & equipment costs. As these things change, as well as your company’s overall efficiency, your pricing needs to adjust up and down accordingly. Because of the absence of a tool to help organize and adjust pricing over time, many simply forgo it all together. 

In 2024, the options to keep pricing and price book information organized are endless.  

ELITE TIP: Contractor software such as Service Titan, HouseCall Pro and a ton of other products have built in price books that make this much easier. Need help implementing a price book into your software? Get in touch with us.

The 4 components that combine to determine the selling price of your services

  1. Labor- Labor is the time and effort component of the equation and makes up the lion’s share of the intangible value of all of the plumbing jobs that you complete.
  2. Material & Equipment Costs– This is the tangible part of the plumbing repair, install or job and should include all of the parts, fittings and installation materials that you will consume while completing the job.

 “Keep your labor and materials costs (COGS) below 50% of the total selling price of the job in order to have a financially healthy company.”

  1. Overhead- The overhead of the business is all of the costs (not directly related to performing the work) required for the business to operate. 
  2. Profit Margin Expectations– Also known as a net profit margin, it’s the bottom line of what’s left over after all of the related and unrelated costs have been covered.

“Your company’s overhead and profit margin expectations are used to calculate how much you should charge for the labor and hard cost components of your plumbing jobs.”

Calculating how much you should charge for the labor component of your services (Long Version)

Not interested in learning math and theory? No problem, skip to the short version here. 

Regardless of the pricing presentation method used to determine your billable rate, what you are going to charge for the labor component, also referred to as setting hourly rates when time and material pricing is used, is a very important part of ensuring your pricing is set up properly.

Start by calculating your fully loaded tradesperson labor costs

ELITE TIP: If your home service company offers multiple trades, it’s both more accurate and more ethical to perform this calculation on a per trade basis. 

As a home service business owner providing plumbing, electrical, heating & air conditioning and/or well & water conditioning services, you very well know there is a lot more that goes into your labor costs than just wages. Fully loaded labor costs look at the entire employment package offered to the tradesperson in addition to their hourly base rate. This calculation combines the benefit burden of the plumbing, HVAC, electrical or water technician with their actual wages to show the true total cost per hour worked per tech.

  • Tradesperson wages or hourly base rate (use your highest paid plumber, HVAC or electrical techs)
  • Dollar value of any performance pay, ie: commissions, spiffs, bonus, etc.
  • Dollar value of paid time away from work
  • Company’s cost of insurance- include health insurance, dental, vision and life insurance if you provide it
  • Company’s contribution to retirement accounts (IRA & 401K)
  • Dollar value of any other fringe benefits you offer. Common examples include: cell phone reimbursement, uniform stipend, etc.

How to calculate your fully loaded labor costs

Step 1– Convert all of the values above into hourly figures. 

  • Divide any monthly totals by 173 to convert to hourly costs. 
  • Divide any annual costs by 2080 to convert to hourly. 

Step 2– Add the total of all plumbing labor calculations together

What to do if you don’t have this information?

Knowing your fully loaded cost of labor is a critical base to ensuring you’re not charging your customers too much or too little for services, repairs and installs. If you don’t have the exact number, please reach out to us for help. 

Estimating your fully loaded labor costs

If you don’t have the exact number, you can use an estimate, but do so with caution. Some home service companies estimate their fully loaded labor cost by multiplying the wages paid x 2 – 3 depending on the overall amount of benefits offered. 

Determine your billable hour efficiency loss

A company’s billable hour efficiency reduces down to two factors which we don’t cover in depth in this guide. 

  1. Mix of business- Companies that perform more project-based trade work such as major remodels, new construction and other long duration work have a higher billable efficiency. On the other hand, if you are a residential service contractor, simply by the nature of the work you offer and travel time between jobs, it will reduce the number of hours you have per day to invoice for. 
  2. Your degree of operational excellence- How good you are at running your business can make or break your billable hour efficiency no matter what your mix of business is. To find out how you can add serious value to your home service business, contact Elite Trades today.

How to calculate your billable hour efficiency

If you are currently changing hourly for your plumbing, HVAC, or electrical services, calculating your billable hour efficiency is simple. 

  1. Pull invoices from the past 3 months
  2. Add up the total amount of plumbing labor hours you charged your customers for
  3. Pull payroll records from the past 3 months
  4. Add up the total number of hours you paid to all of your plumbers
  5. Divide the total hours charged by the total hours paid to get your billable hour efficiency

What is the typical billable hour efficiency for home services business?

Depending on the degree of operations and the mix of services offered by a plumbing, HVAC or electrical contractor, a typical billable hour efficiency would be between 55% and 70%. Convert your actual efficiency into efficiency loss by subtracting it from 100. Example 70% billable efficiency = 30% efficiency loss.

Calculate your overhead

A trades service business’s overhead consists of all expenses that are incurred by the business that are not directly related to performing the actual work or services that are sold. Overhead expenses are incurred by the company regardless of any sales of plumbing services that happen. Here are some examples of common overhead expenses a plumbing contractor has:

  • Marketing & Advertising
  • Office staff
  • Phones, internet & other communications
  • Software expense
  • Accounting
  • Licensing fees
  • Credit card and financing fees
  • Trucks, tools & equipment costs

The simple way to calculate the rough overhead of your plumbing, HVAC, electrical or well business

If your books are organized and updated, you can quickly determine your total overhead costs with a simple calculation. This calculation is best done using a long time sample such as a previous year. At a minimum, you should calculate this using three months of accurate financial data.

“Overhead = Total Revenue – (Cost of goods sold + Net Profits) 

Take this number and reduce it to an hourly cost.

To do that: Overhead per hour = Total annual overhead / (number of tradespeople x 2080)

What is your target net profit margin

There is nothing to be ashamed of if you have a profit target for your home service business. In fact, having a profit target is critical to the overall success of a company. But what should that net profit target be and how do you set it? Here are some things to keep in mind when setting your net profit target.

  • Needs to be obtainable
  • Needs to be fair for the customer and employees
  • Needs to be a fair reward for the company
  • Needs to cover and finance organic growth
  • Needs to be reinvested back into the business to upgrade trucks, tools, etc.

Gross profit margin determines how much bottom line profit is left

Gross margin is the amount of money that is left over after the direct costs associated with the job are paid. Gross margin trickles down the financial statement (profit & loss report) and covers the company’s overhead costs. What is left over is profit for the company. 

What is a fair and ideal net profit margin goal for a plumbing, HVAC or electrical company? 

The minimum a home service business operation should be targeting is 10% net profit margins, while most of the best operators are able to achieve the ideal profit margin of 17%-25% bottom line net profit.

What should the target gross profit margins be for plumbing, electrical, heating & air jobs? 

The gross profit margin for trades services should be between 50% and 65% depending on the scope of work. Targeting this gross profit margin plus running a fiscally responsible company will make a 20% profit margin obtainable at scale. 

Calculate the gross margin required to cover your costs and develop the expected profit

Still with us? Good for you! Let’s recap what we have done so far.

  1. We know our “all in” direct labor costs (this combines our hourly wage with total benefit package)
  2. We know the amount of labor that we are paying out but not collecting for
  3. We know how much per hour it costs us to operate our company, even if the phone doesn’t ring
  4. We have established a fair and balanced profit that we are aiming to achieve

The linchpin to the whole question- How much should we charge for labor? This comes down to setting your gross margins. 

Gross margin is the amount of money that is left over after the direct costs associated with the job are paid. Gross margin trickles down the financial statement (Profit & Loss Report) and covers the company’s overhead costs. What is left over is profit for the company. 

Basic formulas for calculating your plumbing labor billable rate (short version)

Advanced formula (explained in detail above)

Selling price of tradesperson labor = ((Fully loaded labor cost x billable efficiency loss ) + ( overhead per hour) x desired net profit))

Basic formula for calculating tradesperson labor rates

This basic formula or rule of thumb used to calculate how much you should charge for labor in your home service jobs has been tried and true for 25 years. It shouldn’t be a substitute for running the actual calculation, but it can be used in a pinch or as a baseline in establishing your labor rate. 

“Selling price of tradesperson labor = non-loaded labor cost x 5” 

Calculating how much you should charge for parts, materials and equipment

Our On Point Pricing method accounts for the overhead of the business in the labor and effort component, which makes calculating how much you charge for the actual materials, equipment and parts much easier. 

Should you have a sliding scale for parts markup?

This is perhaps the most common question we get from plumbing, HVAC, electrical and water conditioning contractors alike when it comes to figuring out how much they will charge on top of material expenses for the parts component of pricing their services. At Elite Trades, we believe that simple is better and believe two tiers for parts markup is plenty. Here is an example of a sliding scale parts markup, in case you choose to use one.

$0.00-$25.00 x 5

$26.00-$50.00 x 4

As the cost of the part or material item goes up, the amount of markup goes down. 

And so on. This can get very confusing and tedious, which is why we don’t recommend it. 

Shoot for a 55-65% gross margin on parts & materials

Miscellaneous parts, fittings and materials are relatively low cost items and can support a higher gross margin. Because the effort to order a $5 part is no different than a $500 part, less expensive parts are still worthy of a markup. 

Selling price of materials = (parts & material cost + sales tax paid to vendor) / .45 – .35

Sell plumbing, heating, air conditioning, and water treatment equipment for a 40-50% gross margin

Equipment such as furnaces, air conditioners, water softeners, water heaters and other more expensive items sold at higher gross margins can result in pricing your home service company out of the market. When it comes to equipment, try and stay at a 50% margin, but realize some jobs will require you to markup large items a little less in order to remain competitive. 

Selling price of equipment = (equipment cost + sales tax paid to vendor) / .65 – .50

Pulling it all together:

Combining the selling price of labor & materials together to quote service, replacement, and installation jobs

Selling price of the labor component + selling price of equipment, materials & parts = How much you should charge for a home service job

So far, we have now covered how to come up with a cost-based pricing for your services that are based on your business goals as well as your financial goals. Let’s now cover how to keep your finger on the market dynamics and competitive landscape to ensure great customer service for your customers, as well as healthy profit margins for your company. 

Touching on the methods and tools used to charge your customers

Hourly Rate Model vs. Flat-Rate Model

Our in-depth article about flat-rate pricing models, hourly rate models, time & materials and the pros and cons of flat-rate pricing and cost-based pricing programs. 

If you’re in the service plumbing, HVAC or electrical business and selling repairs, replacements and installations, it’s best to combine all of your plumbing projects into a flat-rate book. The country’s most elite trades companies have found that they (and their customers) are better off when an exact price is quoted upfront directly out of a flat-rate book (digital or printed plumbing work guide) than using the hourly rate model for service plumbing. Up front, flat-rate pricing requires effective client communication and when executed properly, leads to high customer service. 

On the other-hand, if your workload primarily consists of new construction, remodeling or other project based work, you may find that time & materials pricing fits your business model better due to the detailed breakdowns it provides, ease of quoting and the lack of client communication required during the estimating phase of the client interaction. 

Price books for elite trades companies

Software for plumbers, electricians and HVAC contractors is plentiful, all with unique ways to calculate and present hourly rates, flat-rates or any other method for pricing jobs. 

Not only does Elite Trades offer a free price book calculator and plumbing price book builder, but we are experts at working with and in the industry’s leading price book softwares such as Service Titan & HouseCall Pro

The Best HVAC Sales Training Isn’t Actually Sales Training

For many, the word “sales” implies convincing someone to buy something that they don’t need or want and using pressure to get them to do so. We despise unethical sales tactics, high-pressure tactics, and anything of the sort. When the word sales is used by Elite Trades, we are talking about the process of leading a client to a decision, regardless of what that decision is.

Elite Trades drives sales in HVAC companies we work with, but not through sales training. This is because no self-respecting HVAC technician actually wants to be a salesperson.

In fact, most of the HVAC technicians we have worked with over our 20+ years of helping HVAC contractors dominate their market cringe at the word sales.

But here’s the thing; in order for there to be work for the HVAC technician to complete, a sale must be made.

So much of sales isn’t sales at all, it’s about doing the little things right: understanding the customer’s needs, being likable and respectful, and providing solutions to their problems.

A Great HVAC Salesperson Doesn’t Actually Sell Anything

The world’s highest-producing HVAC sales techs don’t really sell anything to the client. They simply develop a relationship with a customer, make the effort to discover what a client’s real needs are, and become the solution to them by offering options to solve the need.

When HVAC sales are done correctly, you become an order taker, not a salesperson. This is what we teach at Elite Trades.

Preparing Your HVAC Team for Increased Sales

The net result of implementing a proven HVAC sales process such as the one taught by Elite Trades will be more sales and, in turn, more work. It’s important to remember that adding sales and work to a company with sloppy operations can actually backfire and make the business worse off.

Make sure you can say YES to ALL of these questions before focusing on specific sales tactics for HVAC:

Do you have the right people on your team?  

For the same reason the defensive lineman on a football team isn’t allowed to play quarterback, it’s important to do an assessment of your team and identify the people who should be selling HVAC services and who should not.

Do you have a uniform pricing process in place?  

One of the most important parts of an ethical sales process is providing clear and transparent pricing. To have this, your business must have an established HVAC price book implemented.

Are you setting expectations with the client when booking a lead?  

You can dramatically improve the closing rate and average ticket of an HVAC salesperson simply by doing a better job setting clear expectations when booking the lead. Getting time commitments, booking with the decision-makers, and working around tight schedules will lift sales without any training. Elite Trades can help HVAC company owners implement call booking procedures that will dramatically increase HVAC sales.

Can you deliver what you are wanting to sell?  

Often, HVAC company owners looking to elevate their HVAC sales through training get the cart before the horse. Selling a product or service requires setting an expectation with the client. If the company can’t deliver the expectation at or better than the expectations were established, the whole sales process backfires.

Unique Challenges in HVAC Sales Training

A home’s HVAC system is vast and ranges from equipment to ductwork. The skills required to be a good HVAC salesperson are the same skills that are required to be good at selling anything. At Elite Trades, we have found training HVAC sales is different from training plumbing or electrical sales because of how different the circumstances are that prompt the sale.

Client Demeanor: The opportunity to sell HVAC services or replacements arises after something bad happens to the client. Something is broken, not cooling, or not heating properly. The discomfort and inconvenience will impact the client’s demeanor. This is why good HVAC sales training focuses on solving the client’s problem, building relationships, and not making sales.

Lack of Research: As established above, most HVAC sales are made as a result of fixing a sudden problem, which means clients often don’t have the time they need to research the solution, compare options, and costs. This is why Elite Trades teaches its clients how to sell HVAC with transparency and upfront communication.

The Trade Itself: Industries like HVAC are often associated with the selling of products or equipment. Crafting a sales training program specifically for HVAC technicians is critical to gain buy-in from the team as well as get the results you want.

Repair vs. Replace: Increasing HVAC sales or average HVAC tickets comes right down to repair vs. replacement options for clients. Tried and tested sales training for HVAC companies should focus most of their attention on this principle.

The Amount of Opportunities: Because HVAC systems are large, there are many opportunities to sell HVAC services in the home. A good sales training system for HVAC companies will also teach how to identify opportunities that should be harvested today vs. ones that should be left alone.

The Basics of HVAC Sales – Training 101

Before a client can do business with you, they must like and trust you. To establish trust and likability, you must be likable and trustworthy. It’s just that simple. Some things to help with that are:

  • A nice, firm handshake
  • Look the client in the eye
  • Smile
  • Pay them a sincere compliment
  • Respect the client and their home
  • Ask questions (God gave you two ears and one mouth)
  • Seek to serve the client’s best interest
  • Follow the golden rule
  • Show the client you care
  • Be the kind of guest you would want in your home

Before a client can do business with you, they must believe they need or want what you’re selling them. Sounds simple, right? In reality, many people think they know what they want and need before they call for service. A salesperson must help that client identify what they really want and need and do so in a manner that gains trust.

Before a client can do business with you, they must know how much what you’re selling costs. Simple, but true. Piggybacking off this principle, the client must also feel like the amount of money the product or service costs is equal to or greater than the money they have to exchange for it. Said another way, they have to see value.

Before a client can do business with you, they must know how they are going to pay for it. The how to pay part is not a huge factor in small items such as a pack of gum at a gas station, but shortly after a client decides they need or want what you’re recommending, they are asking themselves, “What are my options to pay for this?”

Before a client can do business with you, they must decide when they need to buy it. When you walk through the threshold of a door and the air conditioner is not working, this question has already likely been answered in the mind of the client. However, if you find yourself closing down a sale on a new HVAC system from a routine maintenance call, you were involved in helping that client see they should buy a new system today.

Focus on the 50% that Matter

Based on the experience Elite Trades has gathered, about 30-40% of people will buy anything a technician recommends as long as they like and trust the tech and can afford the recommendation. 10-20% of people can’t or won’t buy from you for reasons you or your technicians cannot control. This leaves the money zone, where the remaining 50-60% are sitting, waiting to be taken off the market by either you or your competition.

If You Don’t Want to Be a Salesperson, Don’t Act Like One

Hmmm… weird. It’s funny, some of the techs that provide the most resistance to sales training act the most like salespeople. Aside from not acting like the stereotypical salesperson, let’s look at the specific actions that can make or break how salesman-like you look:

  • You’re an HVAC tech or sales guy; wearing a suit makes you look like a salesman.
  • You don’t reference a written price book when you price something out.
  • What do you do when someone gives you literature or brochures? This is the same way your client will perceive this.
  • You layout “MENU Prices” for your clients to choose from and speak in terms of “good, better, best.”
  • Speaking from scripts or being scripted.

Build Your HVAC Sale from a Solid Foundation

HVAC Sales Training Process

Base: Build rapport & establish trust  

Middle: Identify problems & present solutions  

End: Ask for the opportunity to service them.

Build Rapport with Proper FORM

Rapport: noun – A close and harmonious relationship in which the people or groups concerned understand each other’s feelings or ideas and communicate well. In HVAC language, this is the first step to funnel flipping. It’s the art of getting people to like and trust you and see you as a solution to a problem, not a salesman. The acronym FORM is a great way to start building the foundation real rapport is built on.

FORM stands for:

  • Family: Is there anything more important to someone? Developing conversation and asking thoughtful questions about your client’s family is a direct way to build strong rapport. People love to talk about family.
  • Occupation: Since we spend more than 1/3 of our lives at work, engaging a client about what they do for a living is a great conversation starter and may lead to other more personal conversation topics. “So, did you take the day off of work today?” “What keeps you busy during the day?”
  • Recreation: We may spend 1/3 of our life at work and 1/3 of our time sleeping, but what we choose to do with the other 1/3 of our life is a topic anyone loves to chat about. Developing recreational topics will require being observant. Kayaks hanging in the garage? A fully set-up workout room? Pictures on a beach?
  • Material Possessions: People like things. The things people choose to have around will tell you a lot about them. If done correctly, conversations about the things someone owns not only build relationships, but it will tell you a lot about what makes the client tick.

Present Solutions Using FBDBQ – Feature, Benefit, Different, Better, Questions

Often while selling HVAC services, techs get fixated on the features of a product. The feature is an actual part of the product that makes it better. Let’s say, for example, we’re talking about an air conditioner with a variable-speed compressor. The feature is the variable-speed compressor. The benefit is what the feature does for the consumer. This is what your clients really care about, and salespeople often miss talking about the benefit. So, what’s the benefit of the variable-speed compressor air conditioner? More efficient cooling and reduced energy bills. Then we get to the different and better part. Is the feature that provides the benefit different or better than other products on the market? If so, how? And the last part is to close with a question. The question can be a confirmation question or a “do you want to move forward” question. Put it all together, and this is what you get:

“Betty, since you’ve had issues with uneven cooling in the past, the air conditioner I’m recommending we install today has a variable-speed compressor. This feature allows the system to adjust its speed based on the cooling demand, providing more consistent temperatures and better energy efficiency. A typical single-speed air conditioner only operates at full capacity, which can lead to higher energy bills. Does having me install an air conditioner with a variable-speed compressor today sound like the best plan to you?”

And there you have it. FBDBQ. Use them.

Which Way is the Funnel?

HVAC Sales Training Image

If you view your client’s mind as a funnel because of normal sales resistance, the funnel is skinny side up. I also know that my ability to close the sale will be largely dependent on how much of my thoughts, ideas, and emotions I pour into that client’s funnel. Starting to see where this is going? The process of flipping a client’s funnel is simple, and teaching the major principles behind the skill of funnel flipping is the core purpose of this manual. 

Provide the Client Options

By providing repair and replacement options to your clients, you are giving them the power to choose the option that is right for them and their budget when conducting HVAC sales training.

  • Always provide ALL repair options 
  • Provide replacement options that meet the clients:
    1. Needs
    2. Wants
    3. Budget

Handling HVAC Sales Objections

Sales objections are simply questions or concerns that a client may have during the interaction. Read our in-depth guide about handling sales objections for the trades, or simply consider these key points:

“The best way to handle an objection that comes up in an HVAC sales call is to prevent it.”

Do this by following the principles we have outlined in this blog and in other Elite Trade publications.

The universal recipe for handling HVAC sales objections is:

  1. Listen to understand the client’s concern.
  2. Repeat the concern back to the client to ensure you understand it.
  3. Determine if the objection should be handled now, later, or not at all.
  4. Answer the client’s question or deploy an objection handling technique.
  5. Confirm the objection has been handled.

Closing the HVAC Sale

We cover the topic of closing HVAC sales in depth in the Be Elite – Closing HVAC Sales blog post. Some of the highlights you’ll find in that guide are:

  • Most missed HVAC sales are simply the result of not asking the client for their business.
  • Closing the HVAC sale (asking for the business) is the easiest part of the sales process if you execute the sales process correctly.
  • If you feel like you have to push for the sale at the end of the HVAC sales call, something else went wrong during the visit with the client.

Elite Trades teaches HVAC contractors and their team to become HVAC solution order takers, not to be pushy salespeople trying to close deals.

What to Consider When Hiring an HVAC Sales Trainer

Bringing in a sales trainer to work with your HVAC techs and salespeople can be the key to driving the sales results you’re looking for. Bringing on the wrong one can be a complete disaster as well. Here is what to look for:

Does the trainer have specific HVAC experience?  

Many sales trainers believe that because sales is universal, anyone can train HVAC techs. In our 20+ years of training HVAC techs, we know this is not true. For the best results, you should deliver training directly to your team, and if you get a sales trainer involved, it’s critical to make sure they are or recently were a wrench-spinning HVAC technician.

Alignment with Core Values  

Does the sales trainer align with your and the company’s vision and core values? Getting a sales trainer onboard who doesn’t will have a negative sales impact on the company and will create many cultural issues.

Online or In-Person  

Both online sales training and in-person sales training for HVAC techs have pros and cons. Either way, at Elite Trades, we have found a combination of both to make the largest difference in sales across HVAC companies all over the US.

Where Can You Find the Best HVAC Sales Training?

There are dozens of credible sales trainers for HVAC techs and HVAC companies out there. Elite Trades is highly regarded as one of them but takes a unique approach with all of our training.

“We believe that HVAC companies should be led by their owners (or managers) and have found that sales training delivered by a well-trained owner or manager is much more effective than sales training presented by a 3rd party.”

Which is why our training programs are more focused on training the trainers vs. training the actual HVAC salesperson or HVAC technician.

Not only do we provide sales training for HVAC, but we also specialize in plumbing sales training, electrical sales training as well as sales training for water conditioning contractors and well & pump industry.

Be Elite and Practice Ethical HVAC Sales Training

Ethics when selling anything, specifically in home services such as HVAC, is paramount. By following the principles and tactics outlined in this guide, you can ensure that the sales training being delivered to your team will not only produce sales results but will also result in happy repeat clients.

Plumber SEO | HVAC SEO | The Scam Revealed 

Don’t get us wrong: your ability to be discovered on the internet is extremely important. You know that. You also know you have a lot to offer, including the top-notch team of technicians that you worked so hard to build. 

If only you could generate more leads for your services, more business for your team members… (Do those thoughts sound familiar?)

But look at this. Over the past 12 months, we have thoroughly debunked the SEO-for-plumbers myth and exposed the SEO-for-HVAC scam in a way that even we weren’t confident we’d be able to. 

This article represents the true fruit of our labor: absolute proof of what you’re really getting for the insane price you pay to these digital marketing firms.

In This Free Exposé, You’ll Learn:

Before getting into it, first things first:

HVAC & Plumbing SEO Disclaimer

We do not sell SEO for plumbers or HVAC companies as a standalone service.

To be clear, the issue is not with SEO services in general. We are against a particular scheme: the wildly popular “SEO-for-sale” business model commonly used to scam plumbers, HVAC contractors and even electricians.

We handle SEO in-house for our consulting clients and the companies we own. It’s just part of a larger business structure that we try to put in place for struggling clients. Nevertheless, since we’re about to blow the lid off of one of the most lucrative schemes proliferating in the market today, we find it important to set a few things out in the open:

  • We own, operate and consult with some of the most successful privately-held plumbing, heating, air conditioning & electrical service companies in the US.
  • For reasons we’ll cover a little later on, we are in the business of digital marketing for plumbers, which includes but is not limited to SEO services for plumbing, HVAC, and electrical companies.
  • We do not sell these services in stand-alone form. Because of how we work with our clients, it’s in their best interest as well as ours to handle digital marketing in-house. (If your business stops growing after we part ways, what was the point?)
  • We are not in the website-building business for plumbers or HVAC contractors–but after a lot of trial and error, we CAN steer you in the right direction.
  • PPC For Plumbers | PPC for HVAC is covered in a different article.

What is SEO? Why is it such a big deal in the plumbing/HVAC industry?

Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is simply the pursuit of visibility online. It encompasses everything you can possibly do to make your website appear at the top of Google’s frontpage whenever people search for the services you offer, or when they’re looking for knowledge in your area of expertise.

The goal is to get your website placed in front of the prospect’s eyes before another company has the chance to lure away their business.

The Internet is, by far, most people’s preferred method of finding a plumber or heating/air/electrical company when they need one.

All of the traditional forms of advertising and getting referrals, including simple word of mouth, are still relevant in the plumbing, HVAC and electric industries. But very few prospective customers will make a phone call to any company before performing a simple Google search–not just to obtain a plumber’s contact info, but to gather information on the options for contractors available to them.

With all this in mind, realize that the first and most important battle between you and your competitors is often fought in the SEO arena. The scammers know this, too–and their goal is to use it against you!

How We Discovered that Most SEO Services Sold to Plumbing & HVAC Companies are Worthless

Back in 2022, for just one of the locations that we own and operate, we were spending around $6,000 a month on “SEO and website maintenance”. 

Every month, we met over Zoom with one of the guys from this SEO-slash-web-maintenance miracle company. Over one of these calls, during a screen share, we noticed some tabs open on his web browser…and quietly jotted down the names of those pages to check out later.

This whole SEO monster was an elusive creature, one that consumed a ton of our marketing budget at this location. Unsatisfied and deathly curious, we started to research what we’d seen on that Zoom call. We learned about the tools that the company we had hired was using…and we ended up firing them so we could do it ourselves. 

It was during that process that we learned that what we thought we were paying for and what we were actually getting were two completely different things.

In March of 2022, we fired every SEO and Web Marketing company we worked with, and we started doing it ourselves.

Here’s what we found out:

  • First of all, it doesn’t take nearly as long as they claim for legitimate SEO to show results for a plumbing or HVAC website.
  • We weren’t getting most of what we were being charged for on a monthly basis. (That’s a LOT, by the way–remember these guys made $6k off of us each month.)
  • Most of the work or content I was paying for was being offshored to non-native English speakers–or worse, done completely by AI. We were paying for non-real labor by non-real people the whole time.
  • We learned what actually matters when it comes to driving traffic to a plumbing or HVAC website (as opposed to what they tell you to worry about).
  • Most of the “work” that goes into this kind of SEO is just busywork. No matter what kind of statistical insights you’re shown regarding views/clicks, it doesn’t actually increase the number of calls you receive–never mind the amount of revenue your business makes.
  • We were actually losing money. As suspected, choosing to do it ourselves and learn as we went turned out to be the correct decision all along. Considering how inexperienced we were, that says something pretty damning about the SEO “experts” we had been paying to rob us blind.

Here were the results of our work:

Just look at that growth. What if we had never decided to take matters into our own hands? We’d probably still be flatlining!

  • Most importantly, I learned that out of all the people who sell SEO services to plumbers and HVAC companies, the vast majority are scammers who do not know what they are doing. They can’t perform the service they’re charging you for–and they know it.

How SEO Scammers Prey on Plumbing, HVAC, and Electric Companies

Obviously, not all SEO services are irredeemable scams–but you’ll notice an overarching pattern with the bad ones: they’re not very forthcoming. There’s a definite line between what you think you’re getting and what you are getting; the scammer’s real job is to blur that line as much as possible.

They need you to believe, without any evidence, that you’re getting the service you’re paying for. And they’ll keep making excuses as long as possible to explain away your doubts.

SEO Scam Spotting: 7 Huge Red Flags

Instead of demonstrating their value first, the bad digital marketing and search engine optimization companies will expect your trust upfront. Don’t give it to them if you notice any of these signs:

1) Not being in control of your own website

If you paid for a website, you should own it. All of it. That means 100% of the site, its content and full functionality, and all login credentials! If the Plumber or HVAC SEO service you’re paying won’t provide you these things, you have reason to suspect a scam.

2) Reports that you don’t understand

Most digital marketing firms that offer or “specialize” in web management for tradesmen will provide a monthly report showing what improvements have been made. 

Make sure that you can understand these reports. If you don’t understand something, ask them what it means and don’t accept vague answers. You need to know they’re using metrics that matter to you and your business.

3) Undefined deliverables

What are you actually getting in exchange for your money and how will you see the value from that work? This question is often unanswered in SEO contracts between digital marketers and plumbing/HVAC service contractors. Expectations should be clearly detailed, and results should be measurable.

4) “It takes time” (ad infinitum)

Although it does take some time for websites to be ranked and new content to be indexed, there are tools out there that can provide immediate feedback on published web pages, including projected results from that new content. If your SEO company is always using “this will take time” as an excuse or to handwave away poor ranking results, they might be scamming you.

5) “Google updated its algorithm.”

Yes, google updates its search algorithms often–but this is never an adequate reason for why a good website would be totally tanking.

6) The person who sold you the website isn’t the person building it.

In order for SEO to be successful, the people who are working on your website need to have a very intimate understanding of your business and your market. 

If you purchased SEO services from someone who understands your business, but someone else or their team is performing the work, then you may be getting scammed.

7) They keep delivering low-quality or duplicate content.

Any deep dive into SEO for Plumbers or SEO for HVAC contractors will expose that content is king. The better the content, the better the results. That is reliably true–which means bad results should cause you to question the quality of the content you’re buying.

Be on the lookout for signs of bad content:

  • Content that reads as if it were AI-generated (you can get that for free, and it doesn’t rank well anyway).
  • Content by ESL speakers (or non-English speakers using Google Translate). This means your “digital marketing pros” are subcontracting cheap labor from poorer countries, prioritizing quantity of articles over the quality of the deliverables.
  • Content from laymen or amateurs who don’t really understand what they’re writing about. Without a decent understanding of your industry’s concepts, the best these writers can give you is keyword-heavy fluff articles. A high keyword volume is good for SEO, but there is such a thing as oversaturation. Search engines actually detect and discriminate against this kind of meaningless repetition.

Real SEO Strategies for Plumbers & HVAC companies

At Elite Trades™, we have developed a simple Plumber SEO and HVAC SEO strategy for residential plumbing, heating, air conditioning & electrical service contractors that will allow them to compete in and achieve real visibility to their respective markets.

Our program Growmatic™ was developed as a straightforward, simplistic approach to SEO services just for plumbers and HVAC contractors. There are only 6 things to focus on. Here’s how it works.

SEO process for HVAC and SEO for plumbers process

1) Get your Plumbing or HVAC website technically sound.

In digital marketing, whether you’re talking plumbing companies, heating companies or any other business, there is on-page SEO and off-page SEO. Off-page SEO (also called “technical SEO”) refers to the things that your website visitors cannot see. It’s behind the scenes, hidden in the framework of the website, but equally important to your site’s visibility.

Here are some examples of technical SEO your home services business should take advantage of:

  • Full utilization of Google’s own tools: This includes making sure Google Analytics, Google Search Console, and Google Tag Manager (if applicable) are all installed and fully optimized on your website.
  • Have a fast, mobile-first website: No big secret here. Google has been telling plumbers and HVAC contractors for ages that the people that are searching for these services are using mobile phones. Make sure your website performs well on mobile devices and is easy to use.
  • Websites that are easy to change and add to: To work on SEO on a website, you need to be able to add and change pages quickly and easily. If your website isn’t easy to modify, this will need to be addressed early on in the process.
  • Meta tags, site maps, schema, and other SEO tech: Just like in plumbing, HVAC or electrical trades, many factors come into play to make the services we perform work–and work well. These are the fine details that often make the difference between a high-ranking home service website and one that cannot be found.

That leads us to our next step…

2) Make sure your website is strong enough to convert your plumbing or HVAC leads.

So, what do you do when this whole thing actually works out and you end up with a prospective customer at your virtual doorstep? You need to make sure that once you’ve got their attention, you’re prepared to keep it!

Effective business sites are set up to convert visitors to buyers at every step of the way. That means at every turn, you’re providing answers to potential questions about the services you offer. How do you work that information into your website so heavily without being totally awkward about it? Great question. Here are three things that belong on every page of your site:

  • Good customer-facing web design: You need a clean, easily navigable website, from the menus to the text. As plumbing and HVAC contractors, we’re selling skilled manual labor–not paintings! So don’t get bogged down with fancy fonts and images. Utility means having a simple site that is easy to browse and demonstrates you take your trade seriously.
  • Answer the questions people ask: This is where experience and content come hand-in-hand. If you know that people commonly ask a certain question about a service or product you offer on your website, then anticipate it and answer it for them straight away. This will help you not only with SEO, but also in converting visitors to customers.
  • Calls to action: Your website should make it abundantly clear how clients can get a hold of you. Finish every article and service page with an invitation to call or schedule an appointment. Another way to frame this is by offering to answer any remaining questions a potential client might still have.

    There comes a point where people get tired of searching the web and are ready to call you if you make it easy enough–so go ahead and put your business phone number right there in front of them. It literally never hurts to do this.

And what about the rest of the site? How can you fill it with high-quality content?

3) Talk about what your customers care about.

The content on your website has to be high-quality, original content (emphasis on “original”) or it will be penalized by the search engine as well as your customer base. To ensure your website features only original content and that it is truly informative, make note of the following:

  • Content should be original: We write a lot of content for our Plumbing & HVAC businesses as well as Elite Trades™–suffice it to say we know how time-consuming and meticulous it is to create unique content that reads well and fits into Google’s guidelines.

    Even we are faced with the temptation to rewrite existing web pages or worse, to use AI to develop them. But the results we get can never be achieved that way; it’s an illusion of a shortcut that doesn’t really exist.
  • Answer questions people have about your services: Don’t sweat the small stuff here, but do make certain your website answers the major questions that all clients have when they are looking for a plumber, heating or air conditioning technician, or electrician. For example, clients wonder:
    • Can you help me with a certain problem I am having?
    • Do you provide this service to my area?
    • Is there anything I should do to prepare for our appointment before you get here?
    • Why should I do business with your plumbing or HVAC company instead of choosing someone else?
    • When all is said and done, how much might this service cost?
    • When/where/how can I schedule a visit?
  • Don’t underestimate the usefulness of blogs: Think of your blog as a free-form place to inform customers on topics they’re interested in learning more about, that also doubles as a way to generate traffic.

    Having a few high-quality blogs that can educate your market will bring a lot of your customer base straight from their Google searches to your doorstep. And when they see how knowledgeable you are, they’re likely to be converted to clients because you’ll have more credibility as tradesmen in their eyes.

Speaking of Google, it’s high time we talked about a lesser-known tool of SEO.

4) Optimize your Google Business Profile.

Perhaps the most important, yet overlooked part of plumber SEO or HVAC SEO lies in fully optimizing Google’s best organic tool: the Google Business Profile.

Google Business Profile has gone by different names in the past. You may remember it as Google My Business or the older Google+. For plumbers, HVAC technicians, and electricians, its current form is probably its most useful so far.

The gist of a Google Business Profile (GBP) is to give you some control over the way you represent your home service business when clients first look it up online. 

You shouldn’t neglect any part of this tool if you want it to portray your brand accurately and favorably. Plus, since local SEO and local searches are most common in the home service industry, this is how you get an edge over your local competition. It’s critical that you don’t waste a thing:

  • GBP Services: These aren’t services offered by Google. It’s the name of a tool you can use to show clients what services you perform. Having a Google Business Profile allows you to list as many services as you offer and sort them into a maximum of 9 categories. You can name the services and their categories yourself.

    For example, say your company offers plumbing, heating, AC and electrical work all under one roof. Part of optimizing your GBP profile would naturally be to make categories of each overarching service so that customers can first select “plumbing” and then look for “water heater replacement”, etc. The more customer-friendly your online storefront is, the better it will fare in terms of SEO.
  • GBP Products: In the same way the service listings work, you are able to break down all of the different products that your company offers by category. You can also write descriptions up to 1,000 characters in length for each product, which can boost your SEO in a way that many businesses still fail to utilize.
  • Hours of operation: This area of your business profile provides your clients a quick glance at whether you’re open for business (including phone calls) and when you are not.
  • Service Area: This is where you let Google know–and then Google lets customers know–what region you provide services to.
  • Reviews: Keep in mind that Google showcases your reviews on your Google Business page. (When possible, consider responding to reviews; keep responses polite and professional, since they will also be visible to potential customers.) More on this later.
  • About: The About section is a great place to let clients know about your company, why they should call you and what makes you the best plumbing or HVAC service provider in the market.
  • Posts and Updates: Many Plumbers and HVAC companies looking for better SEO don’t realize that Google has an area that looks and acts much like social media does. As an example, here’s a randomly selected sample of another company’s Updates section:

But let’s back up for a minute.

5) Get Reviews.

The modern version of word-of-mouth referral is getting 5-star Google reviews. Google is the number one search engine most people use (by a landslide), so you have to accept how important it is for Google, more than any other search engine or social media site, to reflect well on your business at first glance.

Not only does getting reviews help with converting prospects into paying customers, but it also helps your overall SEO efforts. Google wants people to be happy with their search results; it’s a win-win if they can display a Plumber or HVAC business with good SEO that also has hundreds of 5 star reviews.

6) Last, but not least: stay consistent with SEO efforts.

Many companies start out with meticulously detailed plans to optimize their website for SEO and stay on top of it. But once everything’s more or less established, they just kind of…drop off.

Consistency is key, but frequency is the keyring. No matter how “consistently good” your content is, it can only help so much if you only post once a year. The search engine forgets about you, for lack of a better term, and so does your market. So remember a few things:

  • Aim to update your blog with new content at least once per month, and periodically check old content for broken links, formatting errors, or other potential issues that might go overlooked.
  • Google posts in particular should be made at least monthly, if not more often. Remember, most people will discover your Google Business Profile before they even get a chance to think about visiting your website. Don’t let too much time go by between updates, or you’ll look like a dead business!
  • The contact information you provide to your customers should be identical wherever it appears across all your platforms. No room for confusion!
