verbiage for signs


Hey I am looking at some yard signs when I do installs. I need some slogan ideas. "another quality install" has been done to death. The name of the company is Five 0 servicing, but has nothing to do with the tv show. Here are some of my ideas so far:

comfort design by Five 0 servicing
Five 0 servicing -Making the city comfortable
comfort system designed by Five 0 servicing

Let me know what you think

Thanks

IMO any company that uses "servicing" in their name is too vague. Like a company called Servicemaster here who supplies Commercial mats and laundry for businesses. People want 3 second quick info and wonder if the company services vacuum cleaners/computers or what? I have asked people about that and they agree. Having said that I would choose HVAC or something that indicates a heating and cooling company to get right to the point.

Another happy comfortable house Thanks to "xxxx" would catch the attention of people driving by.

comfort design by Five 0 servicing Sounds too technical too me, designing what type of comfort?
Five 0 servicing -Making the city comfortable Making you and your home comfortable is better IMO
comfort system designed by Five 0 servicing Sounds too technical, designing what?

Let me know what you think

Thanks
When you see the expensive professional ads for the HVAC brands they usually use some smiling Happy family with little kids so I would emphasise the happy comfy family aspect. or happy comfy home as not everyone has a family situation

Don't overthing or complicate it. The only thing that matters -with trucks too- is that the driver in a passing car can 1) read the simple one word nothing fancy or gimicky company name so they can remember it and google or yellow page it later or 2) easily read a phone number they can jot down or thumb into their phone.

Anything more is a distraction from them getting the name or number.

As a homeowner, I find it tacky to see a sign like that stuck in the yard. I personally would not let a contractor do something like that with my yard. The only exception would be if I got a good discount in return for his 'advertising' on my property.

Just my $0.03 worth.

Where did you come up with that name. Five-O is a warning that the police are nearby, or hiding in the bushes with a radar gun.

As a consumer I never let catchy phrases influence me. All I need is your name and number or website.

The tailgate is one of the most overlooked spots. It gets more views than the sides....

Just don't drive like an idiot....

Oh yeah, that word "quality" has been used BEYOND it's death rattles, I'm so SICK of seeing the word "quality" in front of, after, around, in conjuction with and describing everything, it's so overused and abused it's now meaningless.

Another one just as bad is "premium," the only thing "premium" is the PRICE!
And oh yeah, the ads all use the stereotypical family- smiling dad, mom and 2 kids, and a scruffy/fluffy dog of the size I term "carpet shark"

I like this one suggested:

Five 0 servicing -Making you and your home comfortable

No way, that's a BORING slogan, it needs some jazzing up!
I know- how about a CONTEST for the best name, the winner gets $50- that'll bring forth a slew of suggestions!

I know, how about a contest for the slogan to NOT put on the sign?

Like..."Five O Heating and Cooling...Beating your Heating and cooling problems"
