• HL is the cost of the HVAC labor ($) • T is the time of the HVAC labor (hrs) To calculate the HVAC labor rate, divide the HVAC labor cost by the total time of labor. How to Calculate HVAC Labor Rate? The following example problems outline how to calculate HVAC Labor Rate. Example Problem #1: 1. First, determine the cost of the HVAC labor ($).
• 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
