If the HVAC parts you need are getting more difficult to find, then it might be time to think outside of the box. Obviously you can’t afford to cut any corners, but small business owners should be aware that not all of their HVAC repair parts need to carry the exact same number that their heating and cooling equipment suggests. Working with legacy parts can often get you a better deal—and that’s a win-win for everyone.
Every company needs to watch their expenses. You don’t want your own costs to climb, because then you’d be faced with some tough decisions. How are you going to be able to maintain a reliable profit margin? Do you just eat the extra costs and hope for more business? Or do you raise rates and then risk losing a few clients to the competition?
To keep everything on track, you need an HVAC parts company that knows how to stock the right items and keep prices low. At Surplus City Liquidators, that’s what we’re all about! Our customers come to us because we have an extensive inventory of new and brand-name HVAC equipment and replacement parts. A big part of that includes legacy parts. They’re often way more affordable, which is great for keeping your budget where it needs to be.
Whenever you think you’ve hit a dead-end on your parts hunt, legacy parts might be the solution. It’s all about thinking critically and looking past the model number.
We use the term “legacy” for parts that are essentially the same between different heating and cooling models. Put another way, legacy HVAC parts were originally built for an old unit. But when the manufacturer didn’t change anything about that particular part for equipment designs later on, then you can continue to use that SAME part for newer models.
Before you become familiar with this process, it might seem a little tricky to navigate. But once you understand the HVAC parts game, you’ll be in a better position to protect your bottom line. What you’re basically doing with legacy parts is finding the exact right part for the job, just without that “new” part number and price. The manufacturers might change the part numbers on newer equipment, but that doesn’t mean your only option is to go with that one, particular part to make the repair. Legacy parts help you save money, stay efficient on the job, and live up to reputation of having solid customer service.
You can usually get exactly what you need for the job by tapping into the legacy parts market. Of course, at the start, it’s definitely smart to work with someone who understands the options. When you’re ready to talk, our team is here to help. We have knowledgeable team members who can answer your questions, so please don’t hesitate to call us at (800) 428-4339.
We’d be happy to help you analyze the HVAC model requirements. Then we’ll review the part numbers to make sure you’re getting what you actually need. Check with us first, and keep your costs low. Then you can make your own clients happy too!read more
When heating and cooling equipment isn’t working like it should, you never want to jump to conclusions. Until you run through your repair options, don’t assume that the equipment is done for good. This type of persistence matters even more for HVAC companies, because experienced techs understand the importance of treating their clients right. And that means figuring out the root cause of the problem, not just tossing in the towel. You need to consider all of the possible repair options first.
System tune-ups definitely make a difference for increasing the lifespan and efficiency of heating and cooling equipment. But you can’t rely on those services alone. A lot of HVAC parts will eventually break—that’s just a fact of life.
You might have a handful of the most common replacement parts already on your truck. Then again, some parts are getting harder and harder to come by. For small business owners, that can really put their margins at risk. Even when you’ve got all of the knowledge and experience to make the right repair, if you don’t have the parts, then there’s no way of fixing it.
That’s why you need a good HVAC parts supplier. If the competition in your area has been buying up all of the equipment from your local HVAC dealers and suppliers, then it’s time to find an edge somewhere else.
More often than not, our inventory at Surplus City can help you out! We have warehouses consistently stocked with brand-name heating and cooling equipment, as well as new replacement parts. Our whole goal is to help you save money. Then you can pass some of those savings on to your own clients.
Repair services just make better sense for business. Your clients want high-quality work, but they also need it to come at a reasonable price. Having access to repair parts that are actually priced correctly and at a fair price helps smaller HVAC companies stay ahead.
Of course, sometimes the best long-term solution isn’t about making a repair. If the repair costs will only continue to add up, recommending a system replacement might be the answer. The equipment will be more efficient, which can help lower energy bills. Plus, your clients can have the peace of mind knowing that their heating and cooling will be more reliable year-round. It’s all about honing in on the most logical decision.
There’s no reason to make plans for a total system replacement unless you’re certain that it will be more cost-effective than a series of repairs. But whatever that best solution might be, you need to make sure that you’re buying your HVAC parts and equipment from a trusted source.
Just as you’re working to help your clients save money by handling system repairs before a total system replacement, we’re here to give you a great deal too. Whether you’re looking to stock up on some of the HVAC parts you use most often, or you need something that’s harder to find, we can help! You can browse our repair parts catalogue online and then feel free to call us at (800) 428-4339 if you have any questions. We want to make sure you can get those repairs done right the first time.read more

Every homeowner wants to make sure their major appliances have the longest lifespan possible. When it comes to finding the right HVAC equipment, though, people often have a lot of questions about the different types of warranties. What do HVAC warranties actually cover? And when might getting a warranty be totally unnecessary? The more you know, the easier it is to see that, in the grand scheme of things, warranties aren’t really worth the extra costs.
Whether you’re looking to find affordable HVAC equipment for yourself or you need to source the right systems for your business and clients, you might be hearing a lot of conflicting opinions about warranties. That’s why it helps to focus on the facts.
If you’re able to source your equipment for cheaper by getting a non-warranty unit, then those savings are usually significant. They can even work to offset any potential warranty repairs down the line. Because say you were to have an issue come up—if you got a great deal at the start, you could still be ahead of the price of a new unit even after you pay for the fix. Locking in your savings right at the start can have benefits throughout the lifespan of your system.
Most warranties are not worth the extra cost because the repairs themselves normally costs less than the warranty. All you need to do is run the numbers. Another problem with factory warranties is that they don’t cover shipping costs or labor. Those are always going to be your bigger output, even with a warranty.
There’s also the fact that people rarely have issues within the standard warranty period when their system had a licensed installer do the installation. Most of the trouble happens when the general wear and tear and age of a unit come into play—or when an outside force is involved, such as a power surge or damage from weather. In those cases, it doesn’t matter whether you have a warranty or not.
All HVAC manufacturers have high quality standards, and that gives them confidence to insure their products in strategic ways. They can essentially double the price for every unit, knowing that less than 3% of them will have issues. Why not benefit from those quality standards yourself? With today’s technology advancements, a warranty can be largely unnecessary.
When it’s time to install new residential HVAC equipment, you obviously want it to be reliable. But that doesn’t mean you need to narrow your options to only the systems that come with warranties. You’ll usually be better off when you can keep more money in your pocket.
So what do you need—a furnace that comes with a warranty or one that doesn’t? At the end of the day, it’s important to realize that the warranty alone isn’t a guarantee for getting a good deal. The only surefire way to know for sure that you’re saving money is to save that money upfront, with a more affordable system.
Buying equipment without a warranty is often way more cost efficient. That’s why we’re happy to stock and sell new and brand-name HVAC equipment without warranties. Because we’re able to save on that inventory, we can help our customers save too! With Surplus City as your one-stop shop, you’ll really be able to watch your budget and protect your bottom-line.read more
