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:

- First, determine the cost of the HVAC labor ($).
- The cost of the HVAC labor ($) is given as: 1300.

- Next, determine the time of the HVAC labor (hrs).
- The time of the HVAC labor (hrs) is provided as: 10.

- 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** = ?**
