How Reducing HVAC Motor Inventory on Your Truck Can Improve Your Bottom Line

For HVAC companies, your trucks are basically your storefronts and represent your brand. Having all the necessary tools and resources available from your trucks will not only make the job easier for your service technicians, but also increase your bottom line. One of the best ways to optimize your trucks is to reduce the HVAC inventory that they carry day to day.

Reducing motor inventory on HVAC trucks offers many benefits:

Same Day Job Completion

With reduced inventory, service technicians can complete jobs the same day with parts on the truck, reducing travel time to go pick up parts they might need. This allows for more jobs completed per day, which means increased revenue per truck. Having the right inventory also means that you can complete after hour calls with ease, not having to wait until the parts are available in the morning.

Customer Satisfaction

It’s no secret that customers prefer same day completion of the work being completed in their homes. They expect a service technician? will come prepared with all parts and tools needed for the job. Homeowners are busy and don’t want to wait around for a whole day while you drive around town for parts? Having the right part on the truck will reduce their time away from work or family obligations.

Ease of Installation

The HVAC industry requires many different ratings for motors (such as voltage, RPM, and horsepower). The ability for one motor to cover all the ratings needed makes installation much easier. With today’s technology, it is possible that three ECM motors on the truck can do the job of 32 PSC motors. This breaks down to two ECM indoor blower motor replacements covering the 16 most common PSC motor ratings and one ECM outdoor fan motor replacement that covers the 16 most common PSC motor ratings.

Reduced Truck Weight

In the past, you would need ten or more motors to cover all of the ratings that you might need. This equates to lots of weight on your trucks, especially considering that motors are some of the largest and heaviest parts you carry. By reducing inventory, you can reduce your truck weight. This means you will decrease miles per gallon and wear and tear on tires and other components. Reducing inventory on the truck also creates more space for other valuable parts or smaller, more economical trucks. The potential savings here escalates quickly when you are managing an entire fleet of trucks.

At the end of the day, reducing your HVAC inventory is better for you and your customers.
