12 Things You Must Do to Survive 2022

Dec. 15, 2021
Modify your tactics for 2022. Your business may depend upon it.

We are coming off the best two years in the history for service and replacement contractors.  Yet, some very large contractors are closing their doors. Paychecks are bouncing. What gives? 

This is not your normal business environment. Contractors who have been slow to raise prices and easy to extend credit have gotten hammered. 

Wait until the Shipment Cliff shows up (see Can We Dodge the HVAC Shipment Cliff?).  These guys will be undercharging, undercollecting, and underselling. 

To paraphrase the movie, “Animal House,” undercharging, undercollecting, and underselling is no way to go through life. So what do you do? 

Click through the gallery above for 12 musts.

Now, more than ever you need to join the Service Roundtable, HVAC’s largest and most affordable contractor group.  It’s $50 a month and includes membership in Roundtable Rewards, HVAC’s largest buying group.  Learn more at www.ServiceRoundtable.com or call 877.262.3341.
