Attention Tommy

Tommy I’m from Sydney, Australia
I really enjoyed this episode as I’m starting up my own HVAC company shortly.
You mentioned that HVAC make huge mark ups on the cost of the A/C unit.
In Australia this is not the case and I can tell you that many companies are charging AU$6,000 to supply and install a new ducted system in a standard 3 bedroom home.
Cost of goods is 65% which only leaves a gross profit of 35%.
A job like this will take one whole day for 3 guys to do.
What I’m trying to say is that it’s only a matter of time before the cheaper guys start competing with the established companies and when the market is tough it will be even more competitive.
