How to choose the right aircon for a room

The size of the room where you intend to put the air conditioner is essential in deciding what type of air conditioner to get. If you purchase an air conditioner that’s too small, it will not be able to cool down the air well enough. On the other hand, if you buy an air conditioner that’s too big, it will cool down the room quickly, but only remove some of the humidity. This can make your home feel cold and clammy as if there was never an air conditioner running at all. A professional can take measurements of your space and help determine which type of unit will work best in that space. Consider how much electricity you want to use.

Air conditioners are rated by BTUs (British thermal units), which measure how quickly and efficiently they can cool a specific volume of air. A 5,000 BTU unit will cool a small room like a bedroom or office quickly and efficiently, while a larger unit with 18,000 BTUs or more is suitable for large spaces like living rooms or kitchens.

Choose between a Split Air Conditioner and a Window Air Conditioner. Split Air Conditioner
Split air conditioners consist of two units, an indoor unit and an outdoor unit. The split air conditioner has the advantage of being more powerful than a window air conditioner. As such, it can cool larger rooms more quickly than a window air conditioner. In addition, the compressor is located outside of your home, so the noise level can be greatly reduced.

On the other hand, because they require installation by professionals, split air conditioners tend to be more expensive than window models.

Window Air Conditioner
The main advantage of a window air conditioner is affordability. They are much cheaper than split models and are easier to install. If you only have a small room that needs to be cooled and doesn’t want to pay for installation, this model is right for you.

Energy Efficiency Ratio
Energy Efficiency Ratio (EER) measures how efficiently an air conditioner uses energy in its cooling process. The higher the EER rating, the more efficiently it uses energy.

Consider additional features like an Anti-bacterial filter, Dehumidifier, etc…
Depending on where you live a dehumidifier can be helpful (especially in a monsoon climate). An anti-bacterial filter can be handy if you have kids or someone who is prone to asthma at home. One of the most important things to consider is the noise level of the AC unit. Many people forget about this and end up buying an AC that sounds like a train and keeps them awake every night. There are many other features that you can look for in an Air Conditioner depending on your requirements.

There are very useful tips and information in this article. Using them will help to choose a good air conditioner.

Negotiation: Agreement

If you are negotiating a buyer/vendor agreement with a familiar partner, business can still be concluded with a handshake. Most likely, however, a contract or written agreement is the gold standard, because finances, deposits, guarantees, etc. are involved. The path to an agreement requires preparation, a top-notch presentation and discussion of the details.

The other side may request certain revisions and/or concessions. Evaluate the net effect of such changes: What real impact will they have? Are they asking too much? Is the request feasible? All too often we take a dissenting response in negotiations too personally. Depersonalize it. Look at the proposal in a purely objective manner and accept it, re-submit it, or refuse it. Consider your next step, and be prepared to proceed accordingly if you are unable to modify your stance.

The vendor may also totally refuse your proposal or requests. A good negotiating partner with an opposing view should simultaneously offer an alternative, but this does not always happen. Your next step should be somewhat strong, but well prepared. Ask why your request is being denied. If that answer is reasonable, sit down and discuss the process that led to the decision. Look for key elements that you can work with that might open doors to a positive conclusion.

If the response to your “why?” is close-ended, sometimes it is best not to waste any more time on further discussion. If other sources are available, move on. Be sure the other party is made aware that these actions will cause you to reassess your long-term relationship, but be professional and don’t dwell on it.

If this happened to be the sole supplier of what you require (which is somewhat rare), and you can’t do business on your terms, you may have to do business on their terms. This is usually workable, although not always desirable.

It is possible that the negative decision was made by someone higher in the organization than your negotiating partner. If it has been effective in the past to talk directly with the decision maker in this organization, suggest that diplomatically.

When negotiating for anything, whether you are looking for seats, fares, rooms or override, always remember to keep in mind the needs of the other party. This will show in your presentation and will be acknowledged and appreciated, thus producing a more desirable result. Develop a rapport with your negotiating partner, but never try to leverage a “favor owed.”

Do not undersell the value of your service. Offering large scale rebates in preliminary and secondary negotiations can, in fact, reduce the credibility of your offering, raising questions in the prospect’s mind about your ability to work on such a small margin. Carefully analyze your financial capabilities. Do not make unrealistic commitments. Negotiate in good faith. Keep mutual goals, mutual successes, and economics in mind both in your written and verbal negotiation presentations. Your ability to negotiate well and fairly should become as developed as the other principles of success that have enabled you to be where you are – and grow where you want to go.

Tim Sales – Insiders Review of Professional Inviter and Professional Presenter

Tim Sales is a leading authority in Network Marketing and has developed great products such as Professional Inviter and Professional Presenter.  If you are looking into purchasing these materials in hopes that it will help you build your business, read this article so you know what to expect and make sure it is right for you.  

Tim Sales’ Professional Inviter is geared towards people who are in the Network Marketing industry and are looking at sharpening their skills in approaching prospects.  Tim has a formula which he calls the ‘Inviting Formula’ and it breaks down how you can invite a prospect (whether it is for a product customer or and business partner) to see if what you have to offer is a good fit for the person.

The Inviting formula is:

1) Greet the prospect.  The purpose is to have people talking openly and freely.

2) Qualify the prospect.  The focus here is to see if they need or want what you have to offer.

3) Invite.  Which means to invite the prospect to have a look at what you have to offer.

4) Close into action.  Which means to schedule a time to talk for example.

5) Follow up and follow through.  The focuse here is to make sure you are following up with your prospect.

In Tim Sales’ Professional Inviter he says that there is another ‘step’ that could happen anywhere in the formula, and that is to handle and questions and / or objections.

Tim Sales’ Professional Presenter is set to hit the market very soon.  As we have a look at the inviting formula Tim has said a number of times (on different training calls) that the formula is very much the same, it just changes as to what you are INVITING your prospect to.  In Professional Inviter you are inviting the prospect to a future meeting, where in the presenting formula you are inviting the prospect to get into a CONVERSATION (the presentation) about the product / service / opportunity you have.

Now obviously I cannot do the training materials Professional Inviter or Professional Inviter justice in this short article.  This is one training material I would highly recommend if anyone is serious about building a home business.
