The HVAC industry, with its intricate nuances and evolving demands, requires contractors to be constantly on their toes. In such a dynamic landscape, the choice of tools and partners can make or break a business. So, why are more and more HVAC contractors gravitating towards Astra Estimating? Here’s a deeper dive:
In the saturated HVAC market, merely delivering exceptional services is often not enough. The behind-the-scenes strategies, such as precise estimation and bidding, play a pivotal role in securing lucrative projects. Astra Estimating offers HVAC contractors that crucial edge, allowing them to stand head and shoulders above the competition. With our help, contractors aren’t just participating in bids; they’re winning them.
Profitability in the HVAC industry isn’t just about the volume of jobs; it’s heavily reliant on the accuracy of bids and estimates. An overestimate could cost you the project, while an underestimate could erode your profit margins. Astra Estimating’s precision-focused approach strikes that perfect balance. We ensure that your bids are competitive while safeguarding and often enhancing your profit margins.
Every business aspires to grow, but unchecked expansion without attention to quality can be a recipe for disaster. Astra Estimating ensures that HVAC contractors grow at a sustainable pace. By ensuring each project is profitable and aligns with the contractor’s capabilities, we ensure that growth doesn’t compromise quality. In fact, with each successful bid, contractors are positioned to deliver even greater value to their clients.
HVAC contractors choose Astra Estimating not just as a tool but as a strategic partner. In an industry where precision, profitability, and reputation are intertwined, Astra Estimating emerges as the trusted ally for contractors aiming for consistent success and growth.

” Mark, I have never in my life made so much money on a single job like the one you and your team estimated and won for my company. I will make over $1,000,000 by the end of this project… I have been using Mark and his team of estimators for over seven years now and I would recommend them to any company that is in need of an estimator. If you want measurable results that will help your company grow and win more bids effectively while also staying profitable, then I would highly recommend using them for any of your estimating needs. Give Mark and his team of estimators a try, you will be overjoyed with the results!”
“Mark, we contacted you and your team because we could not handle all the bids internally in-house. Since we started working with you we have bid 4 projects and currently working on the 5th. We have won 2, lost 1 and still we are in the running for 4th project. The very first project you bid for us we won and it totaled over $1,250,000 of new revenue for our company. The second project we bid with you and your team we won and it totaled $600,000 in new revenue. Currently your services have generated over $1,850,000 of new revenue for our company and the project we are still in the running for will be over $2,300,000. I have to say we could not be happier with you and your team of professionals, you have met and sometimes go far beyond any of our expectations. I highly recommend using your services to anyone needing help with estimating or getting out more bids.”
” Mark, Before I started using your Estimating Services our win verses loss averages were not very good. We would only win about 1 in every 20 commercial project estimates in the competitive open bid market. We are now at a 56% win average from using Astra Estimating Services which is far better than the disappointing 5% we were previously getting from estimating on our own. We have been using your company for a little over a year now and we do not estimate a lot of bids simply because we don’t need to. Since we started using your company, we have won 5 jobs and only lost 9 plus we are still waiting to hear on 3 additional projects which we believe we have a good shot at winning. With the 5 projects Astra has already won, the results totaled $819,781.41 and we could not be happier with our decision to use your estimating services. If anyone is on the fence about using Astra Estimating Services, please have them personally call me so I can tell them first hand your estimating services works and it will be one of the best decisions they could make for their company.”
