Good point, you do have to insure you get it (the LLC) done correctly for your state and they (Legal Zoom) do a good job to insure the LLC is done correctly. I did have mine reviewed by my attorney,...

What he said...
I'm a firm believer in buying a commercial property for your business and then leasing (renting) it back to your HVAC company through a triple net lease.
We even have a phone number and a computer! :o
Excellent advice and your insight is spot on to the "reality check" every prospective business owner should consider.
You’ve got to hire the absolute best people you can find. Best in attitude, best in ethics and morals and the best in technical ability. I cannot stress enough how important this is. Consider it...
Amen brother! :yes:
Here's what I predict and then I'll tell you why. If you do go into business model you describe, you'll be sorry and wish you were still "rotting away" at the job you had making "70-110K a year".
Very cool, thanks for sharing it.
You think Dick Rutan would be seen riding in that?

Your right, there is only so much you can do as a one or two man shop. You have to have a life.
The business or your work as a technician is not your life. Your life should be your family,...

We have three install crews. We can go to four with our techs if necessary. We have two man (two person) installation crews. The "lead installer" and "installer". We do not use "helpers".

Ooops, sorry, my bad.

#1 All of our techs know how to do a heat loss and heat gain. They also know system design. We won't put a furnace in if there is a problem with the duct work. They must be willing to do the...

We are BPI accredited. We also belong to NCI and are in the process of putting all our techs through the training. Our techs are also NATE certified.
Yes, by your own admission, apparently you did...

Ans. #1 We have an entirely different culture here at Jones; so that call would have gone down completely different and we would not need to have a conversation on Monday morning. What happen on...

You decided to answer your question in #1 with your statement in #2, so I won't bother to waste our time telling you anything.
After all, according to you, "it aint happening".

Well, at least you see why someone would want to corner that market, even though it's not for you.
Please understand, this only happens a few times a year. Most of the time we leave them with...

We'll take all you got! :)

No, not this time. I was trying to make a point; but we do get these customers and we do install furnaces in the middle of the night from competitors that don't want to take care of the customer when...

Your not installing furnaces in the middle of the night.
We do, at least three or four times a heating season and that's not counting the Saturday & Sunday's we install them during the day.

"Sounds corporate?" What does that mean? It's practicle, accepted, business practices.

Please, re-read my post. "She paid in full and is going to wait to be reimbursed by the HW."
Why would anyone wait for the warranty company to send them a check? You don't work for the warranty...

Not to worry. She called my company and one of my friendly, customer service consious, the customer is always right, senior techs ran the call. She paid in full and is going to wait to be reimbursed...
I love and miss you, dear brother.

It almost looks as though they might have been able to put a low boy in there and sneak it under those valves and moving it toward the opening more.
It's hard to see, but it looks like there is...
