Start 2023 Off With More Options With OPTIMUS

HVAC repairs and replacements are expenses customers are rarely prepared for and typically come with a high price tag. If your customer is not one of the 31% of consumers that have more than $5000 in savings, not having options for them can feel like a tunnel with no end. These situations are why offering financing to your customers in 2023 has become essential to your business.

Traditional Financing options can give your customers who qualify comfort by offering an affordable monthly payment instead of paying the full price up front. By offering these options, contractors benefit with a boost in sales, higher ticket items, and an increase in average sales size.

According to the National Distribution of FICO Scores, 60% of homeowners qualify and benefit from this solution.

However, there is another 40% of consumers left with that hopeless feeling.

Almost half of homeowners are unable to qualify for traditional financing due to a not-so-great credit situation, and with 57% of consumers having less than $1000 in savings, you are potentially losing 40% of consumer sales due to not having alternative solutions.

Using OPTIMUS with the Microf Lease-to-Own option allows your customers to buy the HVAC system they need regardless of their credit score.

All they need to do is apply!

Using your OPTIMUS Platform with the Microf option is the key to offering every customer a solution by giving you the ability to go beyond traditional financing. All in ONE place.
