Editor’s Note: The following remarks were made on The NEWS’ group, The NEWS Network, on LinkedIn, regarding recommending companies in other trades.

Guaranteed Sales, Reduced Stress

We find that the more control we have over a job, the more successful we will be. That includes the use of other trades. For instance, if an electrician is required to run new circuits before a system can be installed, we can add the cost of the electrician to our bill, coordinate our schedules, and get the job done rather than waiting for the homeowner to shop for an electrician. This guarantees the sale and reduces the stress on the homeowner.

Huffing is Not an Issue

In the Sept. 9 issue, under the Newsline heading, “ACCA Publishes ComforTool on Locking Cap Requirements,” what crap!

This is just another example of why I won’t join ACCA [Air Conditioning Contractors of America]. It is not an issue. When is ACCA going to do what HARDI [Heating, Air-conditioning, and Refrigeration Distributors International] did and fight the federal government and sue? Locking caps are like Al Gore — useless and worthless. The federal government is too involved in our lives and business. ACCA is just another cheerleader for them. ACCA should use the money it pays to publish this ridiculous stuff and buy copies of Mark Levin’s book “The Liberty Amendments.”

America is in deep trouble. ACCA, wake up, or are you huffing your own gas?
