Knoxville, TN: America's Best Business Address

I'm excited to be living and working in Knoxville, TN, a city poised to become America's Best Business Address. This initiative is being led by the Knoxville Chamber, of which our company, Slamdot, is a member. I think the concept is great, and I know it's possible. I also think it can happen somewhat quickly, given the natural beauty of the area, it's centralized location at the crossroads of major Interstates connecting a majority of the U.S. population within a day's drive, and the excellent resources, from Oak Ridge to the University of Tennessee, along with the presence of many large companies such as Pilot, Bandit Lites, Regal Entertainment, Bush Brothers, Sea Ray Boats, TVA, HGTV and so on.

The focus is on broad issues like infrastructure, transportation and more, along with tools to help businesses diagnose, analyze and find resources for inefficiencies or possible fallacies in multiple areas, from accounting and marketing, to technology and HR. If these are all improved drastically, along with education in the area, then we can easily become a top location for businesses and families to relocate and grow. There are signs and existing proof that we're already in progress towards that goal, and have been for a few years now.

Get engaged and involved by joining the Knoxville Chamber Facebook Fan Page as a fan, and following Knoxville Chamber's Twitter updates.

Good luck Knoxville!

Great Tips for Cutting HVAC Costs and Saving Energy from Rocky Top Air

One of our good customers, Rocky Top Air, is a Knoxville heating and air company that provides a lot of great money-saving tips and advice for cutting your winter heating costs and helping save energy. If you own a home and want to maintain your HVAC system, keeping it working year-round and getting the maximum value from it, then I would highly recommend their Rocky Top Club program. This is a no-brainer for all the benefits you receive at such a low price. The quality of your indoor air, and the necessity of heating and cooling from season to season, definitely requires that you get regular check-ups and take the necessary steps on your own to get the most out of your system. Or determine if you simply need to replace old equipment!

The Rocky Top Air blog is a great resource, from learning about programmable thermostats to the reasons why a humidifier might be good for your home.

I would definitely use their website to learn all you can, and call them when you have a need for anything related to your home or business' indoor air!
