SEO Services for HVAC Companies
HVAC Contractors Use SEO to Increase Website Traffic, Calls, Leads & Sales
Search engine visibility—being found at the top of Google, Bing, Yahoo, etc.—is mission-critical to your heating and air company’s growth. If your website doesn’t rank in the top three search results for keywords like “AC repair near me,” or “furnace installation [your city]”, you’re losing high-quality, serviceable HVAC leads to your competitors, guaranteed. The solution? HVAC SEO services.
What Is SEO for HVAC Companies?
About 97% of consumers turn to the internet to find local services, while 93% of online experiences begin with a search engine. Once there, 55% of searchers click on one of the first three entries.
Put simply, HVAC SEO services help your company:
- Improve keyword rankings on Google and other search engines
- Generate more website traffic
- Fill the top of your sales funnel with high-quality leads from homeowners in your service area

- Locating and auditing existing business citations across online directories like Google My Business, Yelp, Facebook, Angie’s List, and more (including industry-specific directories)
- Optimize your HVAC company’s Google My Business page, including regular check-ins throughout the month on your business address and service area, phone number, maps listing, business hours, questions and answers, reviews, and more

Why SEO Is the Best HVAC Marketing Strategy?
Why is SEO the best HVAC marketing strategy? Each month, customers in the U.S. perform almost 500,000 online searches for HVAC services. Considering more than 90% of searchers click on the first page of the search results, if your HVAC company doesn’t pop up on the first page for your target keywords, you’re losing business—guaranteed.
Search engine optimization for HVAC companies is one of the best ways to advertise your business because ranking at the top of search engines means you can connect with those homeowners at the moment they’re searching for your services online.
What It Takes To Outrank Your Competitors in Search Engines
If you want to outrank your competitors in search engines, you need to accomplish three things:
- Your website code and structure needs to be easy for search engines to find, read, index, and rank (Learn about our HVAC website development services).
- Your onsite content (copy/text) must establish your company as an authority in the HVAC industry.
- Your offsite factors (ex. links from other authoritative sites) must be optimized to establish and reinforce your site’s authority.
To accomplish that, our SEO specialists focus on:
- Website security (HTTPS vs. HTTP)
- Website mobile-friendliness
- Schema markup
- Webpage content quality
- Webpage content length
- Page speed
- Social signals
- Quality backlinks
- Optimized images
- User experience
If you’re like most HVAC contractors, you probably get 20 emails a day promising to do the things above. Like most things in life, if it sounds too good to be true, it typically is (after all—think about what your competitors promise your clients!)!
We specialize in SEO for HVAC contractors, which means we know more about the HVAC SEO than virtually any other digital marketing company!
SEO for HVAC Contractors: Our Process in More Detail
Step 1: Comprehensive Website Tracking & SEO Audit
You can’t maximize what you don’t (accurately) measure. Accurate tracking is the foundation of every HVAC marketing service Blue Corona provides. We market our clients’ businesses as if we owned them ourselves. To provide you with intelligent decisions about your advertising, marketing, SEO, and website, we must first evaluate your marketing the same way a great accountant would review your financials. Most SEO companies brag about rankings and traffic. Guess what? Neither of these metrics matters if you do not see increased booked jobs, revenue, and profit from organic searches (for keywords and search terms other than your company name!).
SEO marketing for HVAC contractors is a zero-sum game, which means that for your website to move higher up in the organic search results, you must leapfrog websites that are currently perceived to be better optimized than your site. One of the most common questions heating and air conditioning companies ask us is, “how much SEO do I need?” You can’t (intelligently) answer this question without first doing a thorough analysis of the other HVAC companies in your area.
A typical SEO audit and digital competitive analysis includes:
- A business intake so that our account managers see your business from the owner’s perspective
- Analytics and SEO software implementation (we use a set of tools no other HVAC SEO company has—it’s the only SEO software specially designed for the HVAC industry!)
- Keyword research and identification
- Competitor analysis
- Analysis and evaluation of your website code, structure, and content
- Analysis and evaluation of your company’s entire presence online—paid, organic, social, and more
The output of our digital competitive analysis is an overview report and SEO strategy.
Step 2: Foundational, Technical SEO Improvements to Your HVAC Website
Armed with the data derived from the digital competitive analysis, the second step in the SEO process is to make any technical SEO improvements required to facilitate your ongoing success.
Here’s how technical SEO for HVAC companies works: Google uses robots to crawl website pages, looking for clues as to what it’s about. By adding in certain technical aspects, you’re helping the robots understand your page a bit better.
Think of it this way: Search engine robots speak a different language than we do—HTML. It’s like having someone who speaks Russian determine what a web page in English is about. The technical bits we add are written in a language the search engines understand, like adding subtitles.
For example, to rank well on Google, you need a mobile-friendly website. That means before we can start creating amazing content, we need to make your website responsive.
Although every situation is unique, foundational improvements include things like:
- Revising your website’s title tags and meta descriptions
- Renaming various web pages
- Restructuring your website files
- Improving your site speed (load speed is a known ranking factor),
- Recoding your website onto a content management system (CMS)
Step 3: Content Creation and Content Marketing
With the right foundation in place, and armed right keywords, the next step in the SEO process is to update the content on your website and, when necessary, create new website pages. Contrary to what you might think, Google doesn’t rank websites—it ranks web pages. Each page of content on your site allows you to rank for a specific set of relevant keywords.
It might be helpful to think of your website as if it were a fishing boat, each page of content is like a baited line thrown into the internet sea of fish. More lines in the water (pages on your website) equals more fish (visits, leads, and sales!)! The content of your website must be targeted to your top keywords, but it also must establish your company as THE heating and cooling authority.
Most HVAC contractors hate creating website copy! That’s okay—Blue Corona has professional copywriters who specialize in creating unique, original, relevant, and authoritative content specifically for the HVAC industries.
Step 4: Optimization of Offsite Factors and Local SEO
The final step in the SEO process is to optimize your overall footprint on the web, starting with your Google My Business page.
Most homeowners and property managers want an HVAC contractor that’s local to the area. When consumers make geographically related searches like “AC repair near me” or “HVAC company in [city, state],” Google and other search engines show what’s called the local pack (otherwise known as map listings):
To get in the local pack, you need a flawless Google My Business page. With our local SEO services, we’ll do it for you and make sure it’s continually updated with the latest information.
OTHER OFFSITE FACTORS
A part of building authority offsite includes generating links back to your website. Think of links from other authoritative websites (manufacturers’ pages, local chambers of commerce, or the BBB) as votes of authority or digital recommendations. More links from high-authority sites equal more search engine visibility; however, you must recognize that not all links are created equal!
Buying links with the intent to manipulate Google’s ranking algorithms is forbidden and doing so can get your website banned from the search rankings. The right way to attract links to your website is to earn them by creating unique and remarkable content—content that is truly valuable to your prospective customers!
Be Wary of HVAC SEO Scams!
Not all HVAC SEO companies live up to their promises of more traffic, better rankings, and more leads. Some SEO firms achieve results, but they do so using “black-hat SEO” techniques. These unethical strategies can hurt your HVAC SEO and rankings—and ultimately, your HVAC business.
Before selecting an SEO company for your company, make sure to ask the following questions:
- “Do you adhere to search engine webmaster guidelines?”
- “How do you determine SEO success?” At Blue Corona, we always determine SEO success by increased leads—not rankings or traffic. Who cares if you’re getting more website traffic if it’s traffic from China and you’re a local contractor in Charlotte, NC!
- “What happens if/when we part ways?” Many companies don’t let you keep your website or content—you’re merely renting it from them.

What is HVAC SEO?
HVAC SEO (search engine optimization) is the process of creating and editing website content and code so that your website ranks well in search engines like Google, Bing, and Yahoo. To optimize your website for search, make it fast, secure, mobile-friendly, and full of unique, remarkable content. Then you must gain citations, links, and references from local directories and other websites.
What’s included in HVAC SEO services?
With your HVAC SEO services, you get a digital competitive analysis, website content and code optimization, new website content, local SEO, measurement and tracking reporting, and continual tweaking.
While other SEO agencies focus on executing the same deliverables month after month, at Blue Corona, we create HVAC SEO strategies that are based on your real-time keyword rankings, business priorities, and competitive research to outrank the competition on search engines and grow your business’ revenue.
Should I hire an HVAC SEO company?
An HVAC SEO company handles the day-to-day tasks of monitoring your online presence so you can focus on other aspects of your business. If you don’t have the time or resources to comb through pages upon pages of analytical data, rankings, and traffic patterns and then have the means to optimize accordingly, you need an HVAC SEO company to manage this process for you and execute your campaigns.
How long does SEO for HVAC take?
Our HVAC clients can typically see results within six months of launching an HVAC search engine optimization campaign. Be patient, though—SEO takes a while to take effect, but the results will snowball once you get going.
How does Blue Corona track SEO success for HVAC companie?
If you can’t measure it, you can’t manage it. You can’t win the game if you don’t know the score. Most HVAC marketing companies treat tracking and reporting as an afterthought—the last step. At Blue Corona, it’s the first step in every SEO project. We track all of your campaign’s activities and most important KPIs, including:
- Keyword rankings
- Website traffic
- Website conversion rate
- Verified leads (both new customers and existing customers)
At the end of the day, we view a successful HVAC SEO campaign as one that gets the job done and generates more leads, booked appointments, and sales for your company.
