Johnson demonstrates how you can sell high performance HVAC systems by taking the first step — commit to doing it. he then shares his experience and success doing just that.

DiFilippo takes a slightly more technical look at how his team overcame airflow issue in customers’ return ducts. He highlights three examples of some very typical issues found in his area and possibly yours as well.

NCI TIPP helps fund training

NCI Member Rewards Training Incentive Partner Program (TIPP) puts NCI Bucks into your accounts and saves on the cost of training.

Did you know that as a National Comfort Institute, Inc. member you can earn even more NCI Bucks through the Training Incentive Partner Program (or TIPP for short). TIPP allows you to earn incentives based on your purchases of equipment, products, and service from our vendor partners that can be used to help pay for your NCI training.

All existing NCI members are eligible to participate in TIPP. If you choose to do so, an individual training account is set up for you and our industry partners will begin depositing NCI Bucks into it based on your purchases. These bucks can be used to pay for any live NCI training class, any online training, as well as any NCI conference.

This is a tremendous benefit. NCI training bucks never expire. They carry over from year to year with no penalties or loss in value. Furthermore, they are not taxable, so you save money over traditional rebate programs.
