We just brought major changes to our business listing plans:
Free Plan Replaced With Basic Plan
Along with the increasing popularity of HVAC-Connect.com, we have been receiving and increasing amount of requests from companies trying to add their business listing on the website. Although this is amazing news, the downside is that the waiting time for our manual inclusion using the Free Plan has almost reached one year now.
In order to limit the waiting time, we had to replace the Free Plan with a Basic Plan costing only $19 for 2 years. This small amount will allow us to cover the cost of manually validating each listing while sustaining the growth of HVAC-Connect.com.
We Doubled Plans Duration for the Same Cost
Although prices for the Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum plans remain the same, we have doubled their duration, from 1 year to 2 years. In other words, you only need to renew every 2 years and you get twice as much for your money.

What if you had the option to show your ad in your competitors’ listings for only $69 per month or $599 for a whole year?
Now you do, at least for a limited time. The new Listing Banner Ads on HVAC-Connect.com will show in the detail page of every listing published with a Free Plan or Bronze Plan. That’s on every listing page, including your competitors.
Also, since we are launching the Listing Banners with only 10 spots available, this means your ad will be shown every 10th time a Listing Banner Ad appears, which implies that your ad also has a 10% chance to pop up every time a potential customer views one of your competitor’s listing page. And we’re not talking about the sidebar here, we’re talking right in the middle of the page, below the title and above the description.
Please note that listings published with a Silver, Gold or Platinum plan don’t have any ad showing on their detail page, so your competitors with such plans will be protected. It might be a good idea to make sure your listing is safe from competitors’ ads as well.
We’re so excited that we almost forgot to mention that Listing Banners Ads also appear in business categories and search results! Again with the same 1/10 rotation system.
Last but not least, by subscribing to monthly or yearly renewals now, you will secure the current pricing against future increases for as long as your subscription lasts. And you can cancel your subscription anytime, so there’s no commitment other than the current month or year you’ve already paid for.
What you get for $69 per month (or $599 per year)?
- Your ad on your competitors’ listing page, 1 time out of 10.
- Your ad on your all other listing pages, 1 time out of 10.
- Your ad in business category pages, 1 time out of 10, 4 ads per page.
- Your ad in search results, 1 time out of 10, 4 ads per page.
- No commitment.
- The spot is yours and initial pricing is protected as long as you keep renewing.
First come, first served!

EDIT: We are now manually reviewing and approving each new listing. The approval process can take weeks or even months for the Free Plan. Premium plans (Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum) include a 48 hours rapid approval.
We’re sorry to announce that we had to add a one-time setup fee of $10 to our Free Plan due to some abuse. The Free Plan remains free of yearly charges. We hope $10 won’t stop serious HVAC-R and Plumbing companies to add their listing on the #1 HVAC-R and Plumbing business directory. After all, how ridiculous would it be to leave numerous customers to your competitor because you wanted to save… $10?
Unfortunately, a so-called SEO expert company representing multiple HVAC contractors have abused our Free Plan and cluttered the site with multiple duplicate entries just to plug in their keywords prix boite de viagra. We tried to contact the company using this tactic – which by the way is called Black Hat SEO and can be severely penalized by Google – but nobody returned our calls nor emails.
The Free Plan was offered in good will to let companies try our platform and hopefully upgrade to advanced plans as they see positive results from the free plan. Unfortunately, this good will ended up costing us hours of work to clean up the mess this company created.
It is also notable that we nicely posted their promotional video for free on HVACR.TV a few weeks ago. No need to say that we’ve just removed it.
Last but not least, as soon as we added the $10 charge, that so-called SEO expert company stopped in the creation process of its new listing. They wouldn’t pay $10 to list their customer’s business on a top quality business directory, even though they are probably charging the same customer thousands of dollars per month to do that job.
Thank you CI Web Group!

HvacPlumbingDeals.com is quickly on its way to dominating this arena. This is the digital age, and online coupons are the next step in the evolution of brick & mortar advertising. The Internet is Keyword driven, and Coupons and Promos can now be tied to relevant Keywords, affording the opportunity to engage in Target Marketing that is unprecedented. A site like this one is industry specific, and just what was needed to increase the bottom line of all participating firms. Consumers can save money whether they need goods and services for their business or home.

As I moderate new listings being added to HVAC-Connect.com, I often feel that a lot of people are lazy when it comes down to entering their company description. A quick copy & paste or just a few words… After all, we all have a website where people can find out more about our company, don’t we? People will find us in the directory, then visit our website if they want to know more… won’t they?
They may or may not, but there are things you can do you help the odds. Here are two essential tips to take into consideration when typing your business description. Two simple things to keep in mind that will get you found and catch potential customers’ attention. So they may go to your website… or even just call you right away.
Mention all of the products and services you provide… and even more! Everything you can think of that’s relevant to your business.
Write down all of the products and/or services that you provide and try to think of and write every possible word people might use to find a company like yours. Even if you are listed in the Duct Manufacturer category, make sure to still mention in your description that you manufacture ducts. Why?
Because description is used in the search by keyword. If someone looks in the Duct Manufacturer category, chances are he/she will find you. Now if that person uses keywords and Searches For ‘insulated ducts’, for instance, you will only come up if you have insulated or ducts in your description (or tags, but we’ll keep it or another blog). As you can see, plural is also important.
Make the first 3 lines count!
Once you’ve come up in the search results, you’re in front of your customers. Great! But you still have to get their attention. What they’ll first see is only your summary, the first three lines of your description. Make them count! This is all you’ve got to catch your customer’s attention. Three lines of text, just a few words.
Let’s say you’re an Indoor Air Quality Contractor specialised in the residential market. You provide multiple services and sell numerous types of filters and other products. Yes you want to list all these services (air quality tests, duct cleaning …) and products (UV filters, AC filters, furnace filters …) in your description, but the first three lines should address what the customers are looking for, an answer to their need. Something like: “20 years of improving people’s home air quality, we are #1 and most trusted company in Florida when it comes to keeping your home air clean.”
These two tips can make a huge difference in how many leads you get from HVAC-Connect.com, whatever your company does, whatever plan you selected. If you’ve already created your listing, now might be a good time to come back and check it out, make sure it is up to date and optimal.
Are you using customer reviews? If not, make sure to read this post: The Free Marketing Cycle, a Very Powerful Tool.
