The Radiant Professionals Alliance (RPA) announced that members will now be able to offer financing for their customers through Kilowatt Financial, LLC, an industry-leading energy-efficiency finance specialist. These programs enable contractors to reach more customers and close more sales than ever before.
“As a former hydronic service contractor, I cannot tell our members how many jobs I lost due to the lack of immediate financing,” said Mark Eatherton, executive director of the RPA. “In some cases, the consumers purchased small electric heaters to ‘get by’ until financial arrangements could be made, and in the process shopped around and went with a lesser competitor’s quote. If I would have had this financing program available, I am positive that I could have closed many more deals, saving the consumer money, hassles, and expensive electrical bills due to the failure of their boilers, water heaters, etc. In many cases of older systems, the contractor can justify the monthly payment by showing the consumer how much utility money will be saved, which will help them to make the monthly payment on their new system.
“It will also allow contractors the opportunity to present and sell even more energy conserving devices, like solar thermal, solar PV, high efficiency circulators, WiFi thermostats, and other well know energy and money saving devices. I strongly recommend that our service contractor members consider this program and get signed up before the heating season hits so that their sales teams can hit the street running at fall startup when these situations, like required equipment replacement, occur.”
According to Mike Boe, manager, Training and Implementation for Kilowatt Financial, “Unlike other banks and finance companies, Kilowatt does not charge contractor fees for higher FICO customers, and offers attractive rates across the full credit spectrum. With Kilowatt’s instant approvals, high credit lines, and unique offers such as same-as-cash and deferred payments, contactors will be able to provide the flexibility and low monthly payments their customers need to finance their projects.”
Kilowatt Financial offers a convenient, web-based portal that virtually eliminates paperwork, in addition to providing a straightforward, simple online application for customers.
