Quit Losing Business

Nothing frustrates customers more than being unable to get the help that they need when they need it. That’s particularly true when it comes to HVAC services, which are often needed at the most inconvenient times. Using a recorded message after hours is less than optimal, as most people want to speak to a live person. Even if you have someone to field calls by day, there’s only so much that they can do. When call volume is high, many calls will be missed. If you can’t afford to miss out on new business, you can’t afford to miss phone calls.

If all you need is an HVAC after hours answering service to handle calls on nights and weekends, we can handle that. Our team will handle your leads as they come in, whenever they come in, so they’ll be ready for your technicians when they arrive the next work morning.

Our team can also take over 100% of your business’s inbound call needs, 24/7. Eliminating internal call staff can help reduce your costs and simplify your operations, so you can focus on other business needs.

Increase Your Revenues

For less than you can hire and train an office person to take calls, answer questions, schedule, dispatch, file permits for you, and many other tasks, you can hire us. And you won’t have to worry about training, taxes, insurance, sick time, vacation time, the list goes on. Our virtual receptionists are specifically trained for HVAC companies and know your business already. We have systems in place to make your HVAC business run smoother and more profitable. Our existing clients will vouch for us. Your revenues will increase and you will have much less stress everyday as a result of our services.

With FOS Answering your calls during and after business hours, you are certain never to miss any potential leads and revenue.

We’re More than an HVAC Call Center

HVAC call centers are notorious for offering undependable and unreliable service. Here’s how we do things differently:

  • Consistent receptionists – Our receptionists and managers will get to know you & your company, so your reputation will always be in good hands.
  • We know the HVAC industry – Working with HVAC clients has taught us the equipment, the terminology, and what clients come to expect from your business. That makes our answering service company better equipped to handle your HVAC service calls.
  • We care about your company – We believe that long-term relationships are the key to building a good business. That’s why we do more than just answer the phones–we want to understand your overall business goals, so we can learn to help even more.
  • Emergency answering services available – Whether you need someone to handle the phones 24/7/365, someone to handle just your HVAC emergency calls, or anything in between, we’re more than happy to help.
  • We work with businesses large and small. Our answering service center works with small HVAC companies, massive HVAC companies, and everything in between. We can also work with specialty contractors, such as air duct cleaning companies.

Phone Answering & More on Your Terms

Our HVAC answering services are customized to suit each company’s individual needs. Here are just a few of the features we offer.

• Superior Customer Service – When a customer calls, that’s often their first customer service interaction with your company. That’s why we only hire people with exceptional people skills, customer service skills, and actual personalities. Our telephone service representatives, or TSRs, are native English speakers who live in the U.S. and can handle your calls with empathy and professionalism. Since they follow your exact protocol, no one will know know that they aren’t at your actual location.

• Representatives Who Know HVAC – Our representatives are trained to take calls specifically for HVAC businesses. That means they have a strong baseline of industry terminology, understand which services offer better margins, and have a strong understanding of what your clients will expect from a professional service company. We can even work with your price book to offer estimates over the phone.

• Tailored to Fit Your Needs – Whether you prefer selling air conditioning service and maintenance, ductwork cleaning and repairs, commercial HVACR services, geothermal heating installation, or ductless A/C maintenance packages, our representatives will prioritize your best services. We will also check up regularly to tailor their responses to your company’s other preferences and policies.

• Call Handling on Your Terms – Our live phone answering staff can transfer calls based on rules you set up, so you can speak with high-value clients directly. We offer call forwarding, scripting, and call handling options that go far beyond what you’ll get from typical call center services.

• Notifications on Your Terms – Receive notifications about your company’s calls on your terms. We can work with your existing system for processing notifications or help you develop a new one. Get a message in your field service management software every time you get a new lead, a call from your receptionist any time a customer is interested in signing up for a maintenance package, or a text every time you get a repeat customer so you can add them to new marketing funnels. The choice is yours.

• Compatibility with your Software – Many HVAC call centers only work with a limited number of scheduling options, but Front Office Solutions can set appointments for your technicians using the industry’s leading scheduling software, including ServiceTitan, GeoOp, HouseCall Pro, and much more.

• Customized Service Plan – What separates Front Office Solutions from a typical HVAC call center? We don’t offer one-size-fits-all solutions, so we will sit down with you to learn what you’re looking for in an answering service. We’ll use this information to formulate a customized service plan that addresses all of your needs.

• State-of-the-Art Equipment – We strictly rely on the finest telephone and communications equipment available. State-of-the-art technologies allow us to effortlessly route and forward calls wherever they need to go. All calls are recorded digitally, and they can be forwarded on using a variety of different formats. Call quality is impeccable, so your customers will have no problem communicating their needs loudly and clearly.

• Convenient Packages – While our services are customized to meet your needs, we have developed an assortment of packages that take the guesswork out of selecting and paying for our services. After assessing your needs, we will present you with the most relevant options. These packages feature flat-fee pricing, so you never have to worry about surprise charges. Additional features may be added for additional fees, so you can easily get the precise level of service that you need.

• Local Numbers – At Front Office Solutions, we understand that you’d like your customers to believe that they are always speaking to someone from your actual business. Therefore, calls are forwarded from local-to-you numbers, so the experience is seamless for your customers. This also eliminates the risk of long-distance charges, so you save even more money. We also offer toll free numbers if you prefer them.

• Detailed Reports – Just because you can’t be awake around the clock doesn’t mean that you should be in the dark. Every day, you will receive a detailed report that highlights each call that was answered. We can deliver this report first thing in the morning or whenever you prefer.

• 24/7/365 Availability – Letting calls go to voicemail because no one was there to answer the call can cost you serious money. That’s why our representatives can be ready 24/7/365 to schedule work for on-call technicians, or even to schedule them for technicians during your everyday business hours.

• Ready for Growth – Most HVAC companies that call us are getting ready to grow, or are already growing aggressively. With that in mind, we offer the flexibility to easily scale up or down your service packages to meet your unique needs.

• So Much More – Front Office Solutions can customize your service to suit your precise requirements. Swap out hold music for your own custom advertisement. Have messages delivered in the format of your choice, including SMS text, email, chat, phone or fax. All calls are recorded digitally and backed up securely. We also offer call screening, and our TSRs can handle overflow calls during peak call periods as well. Whatever you may need, you can count on us.

Hiring a full time office manager for your heating and cooling business can be expensive–and completely unnecessary.

  • Scheduling and rescheduling appointments
  • Emergency dispatching and on-call scheduling
  • Screening calls
  • Taking messages
  • Transferring specific kinds of calls to other staff

  • Contacting the city for inspections
