Before you put too much into those prices he listed. Ask him how many units they buy a year total. Including any parts they may order "direct".

My price on the Goodmans he listed, are a lot different. A contractor that buys 1,000 units a year, gets a much better price then 1 that only buys 30 a year.

YEP..... That would be good to know also......

BT.... would I be in the ballpark that a high volume dealer/installer would enjoy a 15-20% better pricing..... or am I too high/low on that.

Re: Dealer Cost For HVAC Units


That would depend on the brand/manufacturer(their are fringes that manufacturers give to owners of large dealerships). The local area distributor may also have fringes, or give a reduction in their territorial fees. Even if a dealer is a direct, the area's local distributor is paid a fee for every unit sold in that area.

CD is paying more for Goodman then I do, and I get them from a distributor. And only sell a few of them a year. However, my distributor moves a very large number of them, and gets them at a great discount. So some of that savings is passed on to me.

CD is probably considered a "end user sell". They are charged differently then a HVAC contractor is.

Re: Dealer Cost For HVAC Units


I told average price but not in Florida. Just Miami area because there is more supply than demand. We need to compete.
Outside the city let’s say Orlando final price increases as much as $2000.00 that is because of shipping and other costs and you are Right I only sell around 120.000 a year.

Re: Dealer Cost For HVAC Units


Depends,

Is the unit r-22?

Or the new 410-A

410-a takes longer to install and more gear to install

25 years ago...I would earn $400.00 labor on a change out...took 4 hours plus shopping time

Today....410-a takes 1 full day...and a labor charge of...$1500.00 avg.

Re: Dealer Cost For HVAC Units


I have found that the best builders are loyal to the best subs. Best is a matter of value not cost. You, perhaps unwittingly, insult my the trades and their intelligence with questions of material costs.

Will you share with us your material cost?

If you did, do you suppose we could divine you annual income from the numbers offered.

No, I didn't think so; which is why the bulk of our business is design/build for customers that know what they want and are willing to pay for it.

You are asking how much we pay for the cheapest equipment we can by...go figure.

I totally agree. Some people don't realize how expensive it is to run a business. The worst thing manufacturers have done is sell units online to the general public.

It seems like we are getting a lot more trollers signing up here lately who come on, trash talk, contribute nothing, or start polls almost daily on obvious or irrelevant topics.

Or maybe it's just me........

Very interesting comment, and shows the effect of the internet in regards to business. Retail seems to be dying. Internet, it's a two edged sword.

No HVAC manufacturer sells their product to the general public on line.

Re: Dealer Cost For HVAC Units


Perhaps, but Goodman is turning a blind eye. I wouldn't be surprised if the other guys follow suit soon as well. Maybe not Carrier, but, Payne. Maybe not Trane, but American Standard...etc.

Trane has their other brand that can be bought on line, forget its name at the moment though.

Carrier doesn't mind Paynes being sold on line, so they can compete with other brands. Payne's come out of the same plant as Carrier.

Lennox has stopped several places from selling Lennox on line.

But the manufacturer does not sell it themselves. If they did. They would only be half the price they are.

Re: Dealer Cost For HVAC Units


HVAC is really the only trade left that the suppliers have protected the contractors. Now with internet sales I'm sure you'll start to see that change... I can see it going both ways in the future. Now if you want the cheapest unit just go shopping online and find someone to install it.

Funny that you said this. Granted, this is not a manufacturer, but, I just had somebody who bought a jug of r-22 on-line, and asked that I charged his system (no problem).
