I hope you enjoyed the extremely hot summer as much as we did. We all certainly deserved it after the ridiculously warm winter. I don’t know how it is in all areas, but if I had to choose one, I would take the hot summer over a cold winter every time. Furnace breakdowns don’t bring the same amount of revenue as air conditioning failures.
Now that you are basking in what hopefully has been several profitable months, I’m here to give a reality check. We all know that our industry is seasonal, so just as quickly as the extended hot spell came, it will be just a memory. The key for all of us is to make sure that we are prepared to react when the business slows down. We don’t want to give away in the last three or four months of the year all that we worked so hard to earn.
