AC Myths

With the extreme heat warnings, keeping the A/C off is not much of an options. Electric bills are going up and many homeowners have misconceptions about how to lower their A/C during these hot months like turning off the A/C when they’re not home  or just keeping it the same temperature all day long.

Erik Bryan, owner of Precision Air and Heating tells us the misconceptions of trying to save money with the A/C.

Myth- It’s more efficient to leave your A/C running when you aren't home than it is to turn down the thermostat and re-cool the house when you get home at night.

Fact - It is far more inefficient and expensive to leave A/C  on all day than it is to turn it off or raise the thermostat.

Myth- Leaving ceiling fans on will help cool a room and help alleviate the work of the A/C unit.

Fact-Leaving your ceiling fan on when you aren't in the room is a waste of energy and money because fans cool people, not rooms.

Myth- Purchasing an energy efficient A/C unit will automatically reduce your electric bill.

Fact- Buying an energy efficient A/C unit will definitely help, but size is an even more important factor. Your unit needs to be the right size for the space you are trying to cool in order to operate efficiently.

Brand Yourself

 I know you’ve heard of the  business buzz word of “Branding,” but how do you determine what “Brand” your business or how to capitalize on it to make some money. Ali Craig, Branding expert  shows us how to look at your “Brand” before you start up and how you can stand out from the masses.

Be Legally Brand -  
By that I mean make sure your domain name or url is not only available but also do a trademark search.   The last thing you want to do is get a cease and desist letter.

Don't be Brand Basic -
Power of the image and the image is power.  Don't just group yourself with everyone else in your category  know what makes you stand out.

Dress Your Brand Name -
If you think sitting at home in your pajamas is the life of an entrepreneur, think again.  Studies show designated workplace and work clothes make a productive brand.  Besides, if someone actually calls you for a last minute meeting, you do not want to head to Starbucks in your yoga pants.

Don't be Brandom -
From how you dress to the words you use to define your brand, website, social media, etc.  all reflect your company.  Those free business cards with the manufacturers name on the back are not going to cut it.  Your cousin who dabbles in graphic design doing your website will most likely not make a cohesive brand.

Brainy Brands = A Ten -
Even the perfume you where could define your brand,  you need to make a lasting impression and hit all the senses through smell, strategic color, texture, sound, touch because you want that potential customer to think of you for more than ten minutes.  Through the senses you will literally create more blood flow in a brain bundle branch that will bring you and your brand top of mine. In that ten minutes they will either act on that impression, change it or remove/delete it.
