McDonough air conditioner contractor says to use the 20 degree rule

Have you ever heard the 20-degree rule for ac units?

JSC Enterprises is a contractor that does air conditioning repair in McDonough Ga.

Most air conditioning systems are intended to withstand a temperature difference of up to 20 degrees between the outside and interior air while maintaining a humidity level of roughly 55 percent.

That implies that when it’s 80 degrees outside, your air conditioner can easily keep your house at 70 degrees inside. Even if the temperature outside is 90 degrees, your air conditioner should easily reach 70 degrees.

According JSC Enterprises, if it’s 95 degrees outside, it’ll be nearly hard to get 65 degrees inside without the air conditioner working overtime and generating problems like high humidity. If your air conditioner is set at a large differential, you’ll probably run it all day and still not reach your intended temps. You’ll also be saddled with a massive energy bill. — Source

 

JSC Enterprises has been helping the residents of Henry county with the air conditioner units for the past 20 years. if you would like to talk to a ac tech for free contact them at the form below.

PTA Fundraisers during Covid raises $30 thousand dollars

Great pandemic Fundraisers ideas for any PTA Organization OR Big Brother Big Sister Organization

Looking for some new ideas to raise money for your PTA during Covid? This case study can help your parents and teachers find ways to raise the funds they need for school. It will help generate some PTA fundraisers ideas to help your Parents and Teachers Association find the funds they need for your students.

In this story we discuss the Wanda Gray Elementary PTA in Springfield. Annually it sponsors a fundraiser to help the school purchase new supplies. Sometimes, it’s little issues they raise money for.

This year, though, the PTA club decided to take on a huge project. Imagine replacing the playground’s kickball field with a fake grass field.

And why is that?

Listen to what the kids say…

“It was usually muddy and unclean and difficult to play on,” says Silas Williams, a fourth-grader at Wanda Gray Elementary.

However, there was a minor stumbling block. Where would they get the  $30,000 to pay for it?

A local PTA campaign saves the day

The amazing thing is the school didn’t pay a dime of it.

“It was really the Wanda Gray families that knocked it out of the park,” Drennan says. “We prolonged our campaign for a week longer, and they just keep giving.” Only from families, we were able to raise a total of $25,000. The remaining five were provided by local businesses.”

York adds, “We even had kids donating.” “I recall one kid giving 67 cents and a thank-you card.”

Those 4th graders who were kicking it in the dirt now have a new and improved location to play every day thanks to the community’s help. According to Drennan, the field should survive well over a decade.

“It’ll be fantastic to be able to play on it,” adds Harrison Auge, a fourth-grader.

The lesson for your parent teachers association?

Here are some tips from this case study.

  • Get your community involved.
  • Get everyone excited about making a difference.
  • Every donation counts. remember one student donated .67 cents!
  • Have a ribbon cutting ceremony (or something similar) to acknowledge your donors, volunteers and supporters.

These ideas can be applied to any fundraiser your PTA sponsors. Works great for after school programs, music classes and school teams.

Additional online fundraising ideas for PTA’s

Think of popular items people in your community like to buy. Joe Wolpin, Of Fundraisingzone.com offers PTA fundraising ideas for Parents and Teachers Groups all over the country. Joe tells us that these are very popular because your friends and family are buying these things anyway.

  • Cookie dough
  • Candles
  • Popcorn
  • Gift wrap
  • Gourmet coffee

Did you know their are pta fundraising companies like Fundraisingzone.com have virtual programs that you can do by text, phone, email or zoom? Schools get free brochures that feature the fundraising merchandise. The volunteers simply show the items in the catalogs and let their friends and family pick the items they like. Most items are under $20 and the school PTA or PTO earns up to 50% profit. The parents and teachers do not have to pay any money to get started,

This is a great way to do fundraising during Covid. We hope it helps your school raise the funds it needs for your boys and girls at school.
