Enter the cost of the HVAC labor ($) and the time of the HVAC labor (hrs) into the HVAC Labor Rate Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the HVAC Labor Rate. 

HVAC Labor Rate Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the HVAC Labor Rate.

HLR = HL / T

  • Where HLR is the HVAC Labor Rate ($/hr)
  • HL is the cost of the HVAC labor ($) 
  • T is the time of the HVAC labor (hrs) 

How to Calculate HVAC Labor Rate?

The following example problems outline how to calculate HVAC Labor Rate.

Example Problem #1:

  1. First, determine the cost of the HVAC labor ($). 
    • The cost of the HVAC labor ($) is given as: 1300.
  2. Next, determine the time of the HVAC labor (hrs). 
    • The time of the HVAC labor (hrs) is provided as: 10.
  3. Finally, calculate the HVAC Labor Rate using the equation above: 

HLR = HL / T

The values provided above are inserted into the equation below and computed.

HLR = 1300 / 10 = 130.00 ($/hr)


Example Problem #2: 

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

cost of the HVAC labor ($) = 1400

time of the HVAC labor (hrs) = 20

Test your knowledge using the equation and check your answer with the calculator..

HLR = HL / T = ?
