Tips on Buying Wholesale Electric Heating Elements
Use the following tips to effectively buy electric heating elements and parts from wholesale dealers for the best prices:
Tip #1: Buy in bulk from wholesalers.
If you are shopping at a wholesale electric store, you are likely either a HVAC specialist or an electric retailer. Buying from wholesale dealers works best when you buy in bulk, as many dealers offer special discounts by the crate. While this does increase the amount you spend, it decreases how much you pay for each individual item. Just make sure they are items you will be using in your work, or items that you are going to be able to sell. Most wholesale dealers do require that you have a valid business license before making purchases in their store.
Tip #2: Keep the electric heating needs of your clients in mind.
Of course, you want to buy up-to-date products, like the newest low-energy electric space heaters and boilers. However, especially if you are an HVAC specialist, remember that not all of your customers are going to have up-to-date equipment. Many customers live in homes with older furnaces or cooking stoves, and when these break, they need parts matching these older appliances to fix them. Keep the needs of your clientele in mind, and buy for both the old and the new.
Tip #3: Check to see if the wholesale dealer offers refurbished products.
Some wholesale dealers only sell new items, but others work with used and refurbished products such as large appliances. Even though these products have been used, they were refurbished and had many of their electrical parts replaced. They are available for half the price as brand new models and are a great way to save money.
