I was looking into purchasing an airadvice monitor. would like to know if anyone has used them before and if they are as good as the company claims.
Pricey but a good monitor.
I like the reports.
Customers reaction to the monitor sitting in their home a day or two will vary and ...
If you can make alot of money in IAQ then it might be worth the price.
Do not attempt vast projects with
half vast experience and ideas.
For best results dedicate at least one individual in your company to air advice/IAQ. The monitor requires a power outlet and phone line together for best results, seldom did we find a customer had both in the same place. Lots of return trips to pickup monitor and return to office to download monitor, then get back together with customer. Customers like to see the pretty reports. We seldom use them anymore.
Thanks for your response to my question. After you sold a customer an IAQ product did you retest thier home? Did the IAQ products make a big differance? Was the customer Happy with the results.
They result in the highest GM jobs we sell. Excellent product, but like any other tool on your truck,,, you need to take it off your truck if you want it to work.
So if you're lazy or satisfied with your YE profit picture, save the money for beer, If you're looking to add technology & unique professional features to your sales process - write the ck.
BTW - do NOT do the testing for free, do NOT give the test fee back if they purchase.... do Dr's refund the X ray or MRI fees if they get the operation?
In my oponion after a while most of the IAQ printouts start to look alike. If you already practice good installation techniques like doing a manual J, sealing duct, tightening up the house and installing good filters maybe you don't need the air advice monitor. Although in the hands of a good salesman it can be a very effective sales tool.
ALmost sounds like when best buy has the super cheap items on their flyers to get you in the store in the first place, then hope you buy something more expensive.
Would not hurt to log what goes on inside a house for a day or two, especially if it is a hypocondriac type of customer
The way we build has a greater impact on our comfort, energy consumption and IAQ than any HVAC system we install.
A couple of good meters and 20 minutes can find most IAQ problems.
