I cannot believe how much scandal is involved in the HVAC industry. Obviously, there are no politically or sexually driven incidents that we can find in the news. Sadly, the scandal that I am talking about is right in front of our eyes, but it seems that there is nothing that we can do about it. HVAC companies, with the help of dishonest HVAC technicians, rip people off all the time when it comes to service calls. You know that this is true as much as I do. When your heating system or air conditioner stops working, I know that you experience the cold terror that everyone feels when they realize that they will have to call an HVAC technician to fix their HVAC unit. HVAC technicians can charge people an estimated $100 per hour just for the labor of the HVAC technicians. For that price, you could save hundreds of dollars by using that money and time to research how to fix your own HVAC units. HVAC companies also charge nearly double the price for any part or component that they install, which is another way that they make money. Now, I understand that HVAC technicians have to make money, and the one way that they make money is by charging money for their labor. However, I have seen the way that the HVAC technicians in our town live, and I think that their lifestyle is better than the average person that they are ripping off. If HVAC companies want people to be excited and happy with their companies, then they need to charge fair prices.
