Pre-holiday tune-up special

Cold weather on its way

This is a great tactic for shoulder season. Keep reminding your customers that winter is on its way. You can stay positive with a "beat the freeze!" approach or get a little ominous with messaging around making sure you're not caught with heating or furnace issues in the thick of winter...or worse off, when you have guests!

Gift card with new system installation or tune-up

There's something about a $500 gift card that is more appealing to consumers than simply taking $500 off a product or service. With the discount, the money never leaves their account. But with the gift card, they get the satisfaction of receiving something. It's like finding money in the couch!
