AHS should advertise more

Just wanted to say how pleased we are with are ahs 130. Have been burning it now for just over a month. So far have burned just over 1 ton of hard pea coal. I had been considering changing over from a hand fired unit for a couple of years. Last August we were at Ag Progress Days and saw the AHS boilers. After a trip to the factory and talking to Mike I was pretty sure I wanted one. Checked out the different boilers on the internet and especially this forum and that sold me on the AHS. If it wasn't for Ag Progress Days I probably would have bought something else. AHS is a great boiler but no one knows about them here in central Pa.

I agree they should advertise more as well. patrick did have a thread a ways back asking for places he should take the road show. Where should I take the Roadshow?

I think they should advertise on radio stations across NEPA. It cant cost to much to advertise on radio, especially during a recession.

When i was researching coal boilers i came across AHS on the net and also found this lovely website. Before i did my own research i didnt even know who made coal boilers. i never saw one before, only coal stoves. If more people were made aware of how much money they can save burning coal i think we would have a lot more coal burners out there.

Depends on the market rating of the station. WAAF here in Boston is 8th in the country ... you will pay many thousands to get a 30 second ad on that station ... but, if you advertise there, you WILL have an uptick in sales.
