HVAC Franchise Materials at a Fraction of the Price
This is a systematic HVAC management system that is much like what you would receive if you became a member of a first class HVAC franchise. The difference is that a franchise might charge you $25,000 plus a percentage of your annual sales. We offer our system at a fraction of the cost and there are NO ongoing fees or royalties.
The investment is just $2,500.00. That’s less than one dollar per page.
Updates to the system (edits, new forms, and procedures) are available for download for one year at no cost. We will also be posting videos to YouTube on a regular basis.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How much is it?
A: Your total investment is just $2500. That is a one time fee. There are no licensing fees and no royalties of any kind. UPS Ground shipping is free. Processing takes three (3) business days. We print them in small batches so the information is up to date.
Q: How do I order or get more information?
A: Please call the Aptora Corporation (our exclusive distributor). The toll free phone number is 866-2MrHVAC (866-267-4822).
Q: Do you offer refunds on this product?
A: No. This is proprietary HVAC franchise material. There are no refunds. Keep in mind, there are no ongoing fees and no royalties. You own these materials subject to the Terms of Usage Agreement.
Q: Do you sell individual sections of this system?
A: No. You must invest in all twelve sections. Each section is interrelated to the next. Another option is to purchase the various products on this website as needed. For example, you could buy the sales proposal kit, service invoice kit, service agreement system, employment policy manual, HVAC job descriptions, truck stock list, etc. These management systems are very similar to what is found in our HVAC Operations Manual.
Q: Do you have an operations manual for the plumbing or electrical industry?
A: No. It would be relatively easy to modify this system for those industries though. You will use our templates to create a sales proposal, technical testing, modified job descriptions, modified organization chart, modified inventory list, and a few other details.
Q: Does the HVAC operations manual apply to both commercial and residential?
A: This manual was designed for residential and light commercial companies. If you do heavy commercial work, the vast majority of the manual should still apply.
Q: Does the HVAC operations manual apply to union companies?
A: We did not design the operations manual with unionized companies in mind.
Q: Will this operations manual work for a HVAC company in Canada?
A: Yes. We think that it should. The legal section is probably the only section that will contain elements that do not apply in Canada. Issues related to the selection, registration, and maintenance of business entities such as corporations will not apply in Canada. We also cover compliance with relative federal laws, regulations, and certain state laws that will not apply to Canada.
Documents related to forming corporations and complying with certain laws will not be correct for your Country. However, the Legal section’s content will still serve as an excellent template for your company. For example, the Legal section contains certain USA federal forms. Their Canadian equivalents can be easily downloaded from the internet and replaced.
Q: Is flat rate pricing included?
A: Yes. We offer several flat rate books with different labor rates as MS Word and PDF documents. No software is included.
Q: Is performace based compensation included?
A: Yes. A complete customizable system is included.
Q: Can we make changes to this system?
A: Yes. The system was written primarily using MS Word 2007. If you can use MS Word 2007 (or above), you will be able to easily make changes.
Q: Is training and or consulting available?
A: Yes but it is not included. You may purchase consulting time as needed. We can also provide onsite consulting and implementation for your business. Call for details.
