I operate on a 50% margin (not mark-up).
Yes we do have central heat...problem is getting a small enough furnace that
has a big enough blower drive for the A/C
thats what I am talking about

hmmmm. That is an interesting problem (small blower) One that I wouldn't see
Typical new houses get 60,000 BTU up to about 2000 Sq ft. and the A/C get
about 24,000 BTU depending on the size factors and exposure (more of a
guess) Not really much design work to do.
Most contractors here now see (encourage) the home owners to do their own
wiring as they have gotten serious with the inspections and a few years ago
went back and made about 300 installations be upgraded to current standards
at the installer's costs. Nobody was putting in the disconnect device at the
compressor outside. One guy had to replace the whole electrical service
'cause 60A wasn't big enough to satisfy the code. Anyway, most customers get
excited to save some money and if the shit hits the fan then they are the
ones that did it. Most of the A/C guys aren't qualified to wire commercially
and can't get an inspection...LOL. The homwowner gets away with this and
gets advice how to do it from the installers.

Best advice I can give you is to get qualified and certified in all aspects
(including electrical), provide premium service and command a premium price.

There are some serious differences between the Gulf Coast and Canada
