As most HVAC companies know, we are in the midst of our industry’s low seasons. Some companies will wait until summer is almost over to reach out to their maintenance agreement customers with offers such as early replacement and other services. While this strategy may give you some success, it is often difficult to get the consumer’s attention because they are also being bombarded with similar offers from competitors. Even though it's still winter, field service businesses all over the country are already bracing for one of their slowest upcoming seasons – the spring. The HVAC industry has become accustomed to these dips in service calls during the spring and fall. Homeowners are not typically using or even thinking about their air conditioner or heating system. Due to this decrease in interest, it can be hard for some businesses to make it through.
