The really big heating and A/C companies charge an arm and a leg. They have enormous advertising budgets and overhead—and they make YOU foot the bill.
Because we’re an independent company, we’re able to keep our costs low. This allows us to offer you up to 40% LOWER prices on SUPERIOR products and workmanship than corporate companies.
Keep reading to see exactly how we do it.
#1: Minimal Advertising
The “Big Guys” get their business by bombarding people with constant advertising. Advertising isn’t cheap, so these companies have to increase their prices to cover the costs.
We’ve been a trusted HVAC contractor for Philadelphia and its suburbs since 1955. We don’t need to rely on tons of advertising—the community already knows and trusts us. It’s why 80% of our business comes from word of mouth.
We don’t need a 7-figure ad budget. Our customers do most of our “advertising” for us! As a result, we’re able to keep our prices down.
#2: Lower Overhead
Bloat: It’s one of the biggest reasons corporate heating and cooling companies have to charge exorbitant prices. The bigger a company is, the more it costs them to operate. And the more it costs them to operate, the higher their prices.
At PGE, we run a tight ship to keep overhead as low as possible. That means no unnecessary spending. No waste. No frills.
Bottom line: We’ve streamlined our business to maximize quality… and minimize costs.
#3: Accountable Technicians
One of the best ways for HVAC companies to keep their prices low? Hire technicians who care.
Our technicians aren’t just great at what they do… they want to be great at what they do. Once they’re in your home, their mission is to get your job done with absolute precision and urgency.
Each PGE technician has at least 15 years with our company—that’s unheard-of loyalty in this industry!
But that’s simply the type of individual we hire: committed, passionate, and ACCOUNTABLE.
We utilize only premium materials and products. For example, we install new systems from Bryant, a leading heating and A/C manufacturer for over 100 years.
Our refusal to use cheap products actually saves YOU big dollars. Because we use first-rate materials, we virtually NEVER have to make service calls for warranty issues. Since our techs aren’t tied up doing warranty work all day, we’re able to maintain lower costs than companies that use cheaper products.
