Unlike contractors in other industries, HVAC companies can thrive throughout all seasons. In warmer weather, ac repair is in high demand. In contrast, winter calls for homeowners and others in search of furnace repair.
We’ve all seen articles like Top 100 HVAC Keywords, but shouldn’t these lists be broken down by season? We think so, which is why HVAC Webmasters presents the top 20 furnace repair keywords for 2023’s cold seasons.
Before we start listing terms, we should describe to you our logic for determining the “best” keywords. Factors we consider include:
- Buyer Intent: Does the keyword indicate a consumer willing to spend money or merely someone looking for information?
- Search Volume: Does the keyword register monthly search volume according to keyword research tools; MOZ & SEMrush?
- Keyword Difficulty: How competitive is the keyword based on metrics from MOZ & SEMrush
We could probably go even more in-depth than that when describing keyword research, but as an HVAC contractor in the dead of winter, you are probably thinking, “just give me the keywords.” Well, as promised, here are the top 20 furnace repair keywords, rated by overall value:

Where To Put Keywords for SEO
Your keywords should be implemented throughout your website and its content, with specific keywords being appointed to specific pages. It’s also necessary in many cases to utilize these keywords on other web properties like Google My Business, Facebook, and Instagram.
Developing a URL hierarchy that will tie directly in with your keyword placement strategy is critical for keywords to work on a website. Furthermore, it helps Google appropriately index your pages, and its users seamlessly navigate your website. Here are the main places for keywords:
- Content: The on-page paragraph text
- Headers: The H1 and H2 tags on your page
- Image Alt Text: The alt text on your embedded image files
- Meta Description: The 160 characters that display underneath a search result
- SEO Title: AKA the Title Tag, which is the main text you see on search results and the top of your browser when hovering over a tab
- URL: If you have a page about furnace repair, it’s best to have furnace-repair in the URL
It’s optimal to place a keyword in each one of these places, but make no mistake; keyword stuffing is a black hat tactic that will hurt your SEO. So to be clear, placing these keywords in the abovementioned areas is optimal but don’t overdo it.
Always use keywords in the page’s context, image, content, description, etc. Steer clear of using keywords consecutively or using them unnaturally. When marketers talk about organic SEO, they are alluding specifically to white-hat SEO, which means tactics such as keyword stuffing are absolutely off-limits.
