Pick-A-Trip Program  


Back by popular demand, our Pick-A-Trip program began November 1 and will run through April 30, 2011.

Increase your Ruud equipment purchases by $15,000 or more over the same time period last year and win a vacation. It's that easy.

Are you a relatively small operation? This program is great for smaller contractors because even the lowest investment level earns your some fantastic trips. Spend four days aboard a Carnival or Norwegian cruise ship. Or, take your dream sports vacation, complete with two tickets to the NFL, MLB, MBA, NHL or NASCAR event of your choice.

Check out our Web site for the complete list of prize packages, and ask your Comfort Supply sales rep to explain the program's rules.

It's getting cold and dark outside, what better time to plan your summer 2011 vacation. Bahamas anyone?

Services Contracts Can Keep Business Moving During Slow Months  


The pace of business slows for HVAC contractors during the milder months of the fall, and in moderate climates like Middle Tennessee’s this can make for a couple of seemingly long months.

By offering service contracts, HVAC contractor customers can keep business coming in during the slower times of the year. If a customer has set up a service contract, they can schedule routine maintenance during the slow fall months and keep their crews busy.

Usually service contracts include priority treatment for customers and a discount for the homeowner when a repair needs to be done.

The homeowner benefits from having a clean, energy efficient HVAC system, and the contractor benefits from the steady income.

The best way to sell a service contract is to be honest – tell the homeowner that preventative maintenance cuts down on repair costs and can reduce their utility bills. Mention to them the full cost of repairs for a list of HVAC replacement parts if they were not covered by a service contract when the repairs needed to be done.
