haha- let us know when you find out how to buy some sleep:D - "it feels so good when you stop"
seriously- if you don't smoke, don't let this make you start, and if you do-keep track of your intake- it's amazing how it goes up with the hours.

Once you get familiar with racks, you won't want to work on anything else.(Racks are easy, but don't tell anyone or they'll all want to do it :D )
Good luck. Keep us posted;)

Itís taken you a long time to get this. It will take you even longer to be comfortable it, but well worth it. Take it slow and easy youíll get it. Good Luck.

thats awesome. Dont worry about racks. Just think of it as a buch of pumps working in parallel to obtain a common setpoint(suction), because thats all it is. Everything else will come with time. And you'll be inside alot more than hvac!

You wont regret it. Just keep in mind that its a whole new world. You will probably learn more in six months of servicing supermarket/rack refrigeration than five years of HVAC. Good luck!

w only have one customet with a rack...... and it's older than I am.... haha i know that because there is the initial installation (at another location of course) sticker and it was installed early in 1978 so it's not that shiny anymore!! haha.

Good luck with the new venture. Racks are great if you are willing to get up at all hours of the morning on emergency calls. Great overtime opertunities that is. I personally think that rack systems are one of the best ways to learn refrigeration since practically everything you'll run into out there can be found on a rack. I've since moved into chillers but I still think about some of the systems that I've serviced in the past.
Refrigeration mechanics are never out of a job.
