Today I want to look at a business model that has been a huge success in Canada and is now being brought to the U.K, by Hassle Free Boilers.
HFB are part of the Ecovision Group who are dedicated to providing “green energy” to the wider U.K domestic energy market. But the business model they are using to deliver this is quite unique.
A New Boiler Is A Big Expense
If you buy a new boiler in Great Britain you are in for a sizeable bill. Add to that installation costs and you have a cost that equates to a pretty good second hand car. You then have a service contract and the actual energy costs to add on top.
A recent survey of U.K homes suggested that the average age of gas central heating systems and installed boilers is between 7 and 8 years old. There have been considerable advances in boiler technology during that time. If we use the car analogy again, not many people drive around in 8 year old cars!
For a start fuel efficiency and emmissions are not good. So, by getting a new car, you can cut emmissions and save on fuel.
The same is true for installing a new boiler.
Again, the average boiler is classed as Grade D / Grade E. That means energy efficiency is pretty poor. Hassle Free install new eco-friendly boilers from three top manufacturers:-
These are withoout doubt the most advanced energy efficient boiler manufacturers in the current market.
Any boiler installed, be it a combi, heat only or system boiler, will be energy efficient Grade A rated. That means they are 45-50% more efficient than a Grade E boiler. Clearly that translates into huge savings on your energy bill. It also means less emmissions so your home is more enviromentally friendly into the bargain.
An Attractive Deal
But, what makes the Hassle Free deal so attractive?
It’s a valid question.
The deal is this. Hassle Free will do a survey with you and check your home to see which boiler is the most efficient for your central heating and water heating system. They will then install the boiler, do a full systems check, install a magnaclean filter and do a complete systems drain and refill.
It’s a professional job to make sure your system is running at peak efficiency.
Well, actually not necessarily. Because of their huge buying power, HFB have negotiated keen supplier deals with all of the manufacturers, savings that are passed on to you the consumer.
Of course you can pay for yur boiler up front, but, you can also transfer that cost across the lifetime of the boiler and make an all inclusive service and payment contract. All this for as little as £36/month. That can be as little at £19/month if you pay for te boiler up front.
A Great Way To Save
This is far cheaper than most other offerings in the U.K market.
However, that is not all. Again, because of the economies of scale at play, HFB have also managed to negotiate a spot energy deal to bring you cheaper gas as well. Overall this means huge savings for you across your energy costs. Plus, as I mentioned, you instantly become and “eco-friendly” home. This is what I think makes this such a very good deal.
Have you considered of having your very own business? If you do, then you need to come up with a business idea first before anything else. How are you going to get such idea? All you have to do is to follow through one out of the three methods mentioned below:
Method 1 Find A Need
This is what most businesses are based. The founder of the business saw that there is a need, then they have created something out of it to satisfy and address that need. When people’s need has been satisfied that’s already a sure recipe for success. So, what you can do is be observant. See for yourself what could be a need that you can address through a service or product.
Or, you can ask yourself is there something I need for myself. Are there any people out there who do share the same need as I do? This is where you start researching, asking people around, and come up with conclusion that indeed there is a need. Later on, you come up with a business idea how you are going to address that need with the use of a service or a product. Be sure there is no other company out there who have addressed such need. In this way, you become the very first one who addresses such need, find a solution for it, and eventually people will come knocking at you. Before you know it you are earning millions.
Method 2 Look At The Trend
Another method of coming up a business idea is for you to look at the trend. Check out what is the latest trend today. If you find a trend, ask yourself how long will this trend last? This is where you need to do a thorough research about it. See what the experts have to say as to the longevity of such trend. When you already know you then come up with a business idea. What product or service you can introduce to the market in line with the specific trend.
There is one thing you need to remember, you are coming up with a business idea base on trend. You need to ready yourself as to what the future might be if you proceed with such business. Are you going to be in the business for 5 years or 10 years? Are you going to get back your ROI in an x amount of years? All these need to be considered if you want to be successful in such kind of business.
Method 3 Combine Ideas
Last method is for you to combine one business idea with another idea or two. This will enable you to come up with a new one and eventually your idea is much better. You can get ideas from simply everywhere. One good place is for you to check out your local area. See what business idea you can get out, and then mix it with another idea.
Perhaps, you might consider checking out the Internet for other ideas. Even grab an idea or two from business magazines. You can never tell how many ideas you can get if you put your time into searching for them. Who knows you will be able to have one great business idea?
Are you now ready to start unraveling a business idea? Do pick which method mentioned above you are going to use. For sure, you will be able to come up with an idea today or for days to come. Think of it as a mind exercise. You will surely see the benefit out of it in the future when you put your idea into reality – a successful business.
