Warranty Form Changes – slight but necessary

Today we are rolling out our new warranty form. We have revealed the form with a few contractors over the last week and are excited to announce that the new form is now available for everyone. This form will need to be used for all future warranty claims.

Here’s a direct link to the form. You can always find it in the menu at the top of the page.

Finding the Right Information… When you need it!

Do you ever have trouble finding the information you need when you need it? Being resourceful in our industry can make a business very successful. Even if your technicians don’t know everything about every possible system in the field they can learn a few facts to know how to get them from “huh?” to the correct solution to the problem.
One of those ways is to use a smartphone. For those of you that have an iPhone or Android there are a bunch of awesome apps that will help your technicians get the information they need, and fast!

The Unfiltered Truth About Money

The Unfiltered Truth About Money

By Larry Winget

The average 50-year-old in this country has $2,500 in savings! Very few people know how to handle money. This presentation is an eye-opener. Picture yourself with money problems, and your Dad just sat you down for heart-to-heart talk. That is what Larry is about to do…but he is much more straightforward than your dad would be. If you want to now the truth about money, listen to this program. You are broke because you want to be! It’s actually pretty simple – Spend less and save more! Wishful thinking is NOT a wealth strategy – You need a plan.

Basic Straight Forward Principles about Money:
- You have to “make a decision” to handle your money properly
- What is your motivation to handle money better?
- Write down where you are financially
A) What do you have?
B) What do you owe?
- Establish priorities
- The more service you provide the more money you will have
- What are you able to live without?
Where you spend your time, energy and money is a direct reflection of what’s important to you.

Did you know? Aprilaire has many products that qualify for the Buy American Act

Aprilaire has many products that are made in America and today I got my hands on a letter that specifically states that many of their products qualify for the Buy American Act of 2009. What does this mean? It means you can bid Aprilaire on any government or other job that requires the products to qualify for this act!
