A GAME-CHANGING APP

I just can’t say enough about an app that has become an essential part of my life and the overall operation of our HVACR service team.

I am talking about EVERNOTE. It is one of the best ways to assemble, organize and present information that I have ever seen. Now you may be thinking that I am compensated for endorsing this product but you are wrong. I am compensated by using the product. I use it for training purposes as well. It has a great presentation mode that I use instead of powerpoint slides.

I use it many times per day. It is extremely useful when we have our weekly service huddle meeting.

Below is a screenshot sampling one of our huddle meeting frameworks.

You can easily hyperlink the topics to other notes that have been organized into specific Notebooks.

We also have the essential Notebooks shared with all the service techs. It is feature-rich and the beauty is that it syncs across just about all platforms.

An example list of our company shared Notebooks contain the following topics: Work Data, Parts Information, Site Information, Memos, Policies, Training, etc. In these Notebooks are contained over 500 notes and training presentations. It is easily searchable for specific notes inside these Notebooks.

As we go throughout the week and run across some useful topic to discuss or encounter a recurring issue, we add it to the list for “Monday” and we keep the team informed. It helps us to maintain a near-paperless approach to our day to day business practices. For all our larger digital files that contain operation manuals and other manufacturer information, we use Box, which contains over 12GB of technical information for our team to access.

My wife and I both have the premium version and use it for all our financial paperwork and household business. Click here to for a free trial of Evernote.

Good Salespeople Rarely Leave Their Company; They Usually Leave Their Boss 

25 years in sales management and executive roles taught me the number 1 reason salespeople gave for leaving their current position was they didn’t feel valued or appreciated by their manager. Money usually came in 4th, 5th or 6th on their reasons for leaving. Lack of career progression or potential came high on the list, usually 2nd or 3rd. But the most damning reason of all was sloppy management. READ MORE HERE

Preparing For The HVACR Exam

Room Air1 copy

Here are some important facts about room air distribution that will be helpful to learn in preparation for any HVACR exam. EXCERPT FROM THE TECHNICAL INSTITUTE MANUALS AVAILABLE FROM THE ONLINE STORE AT RSES.

The final factor in evaluating the air distribution in a space is the comfort of the occupants. In general, a person is thermally comfortable when body heat loss equals body heat production. What most people call a “draft” is simply a slight movement of air that results in a local feeling of “coolness.” It has been determined that a velocity change of 15 ft/min has about the same effect on comfort as a 1°F of temperature change.

A typical room air distribution system with local air velocities of less than 40 to 80 ft/min will satisfy 80% of occupants. Localized air temperatures should be less than 2°F below the general room temperature. The temperature near the floor should be less than 4°F below that at about shoulder height. For heating, local air velocities generally are below 40 ft/min. For cooling, local air velocities should be between 40 and 80 ft/min.
