At long last, a new Cool-n-Save Website
After eight years of long service, we decided to ditch the old Cool-n-Save website and launch a new one. Thanks to persistent support from our customers, we finally got the gumption to make the move. Now, our only wish is that we had made done this earlier! The site is so much easier to manage. Thanks to our partners at zHydrocool in Denver for all their great support.
Meanwhile, inquiries for Cool-n-Save products have been through the roof! We’re up 30% in visits to the website and sales are ticking up as well. To be honest, we’re a bit anxious to see what happens later in the season. We only buy enough raw components to meet projected sales (based on previous years). If the May/June inquiries are any indication, we may run out of product by August. Not saying this is a done deal, but it really is a possibility.
The big question is why all of this renewed interest?
One theory is that Americans are growing increasingly conscious of their consumption of energy. Moreover, energy bills are increasing as well. Oil/gas prices may be part of the issue, but you don’t need to be a MBA to see that the utilities are charging more and more for every kilowatt hour. Naturally, we want to keep those costs down as much as possible. But does that mean that you have to live in a sweat box with the thermostat set to 79-80°F?
The obvious answer to that question is a resounding, “NO.” Now, I don’t have the actual numbers handy but an HVAC engineer told me that you can actually save more money by misting your air conditioner condenser coils than you can by raising your thermostat to a rather warm 79°F. I admit that this little anecdote lacks details, but rather than dive into the technical weeds, allow me to redirect to the salient point that an air conditioner is to be enjoyed, not despised. Maybe that’s the biggest reason that people are now asking about Cool-n-Save.
