    2002 was a horrible year in aviation. Maybe you missed it but a certain event on 9/11/01 had a profound effect on the airlines. Most of the majors came out of that time period without their pensions,...

    Your benchmark for comparing CFI wages was Comair Academy? That place WAS a joke. I LIVED in Sanford and I didn't even attempt to get a job there. Their pay was a joke, I can't believe people...

    Your numbers are way off..

    10-15 years to make $50k? Unless they have zero ambition and start over, repeatedly, at first year pay on purpose.

    Over the next couple years the only people that...

    I graduated ERAU with around 15k in debt. Left my parents wing in sophomore year. Never looked back...

    The notion that everyone is supported by their parents is laughable and reeks of jealously...

    Personally I feel your view is an arrogant one. You're basically saying homeowners are too stupid to understand HVAC and work on it safely. I find that position humorous personally.

    I understand...

    That's unfortunate but jives with what I've seen from the folks who have worked on my equipment in the past.

    I remember Sears at what point sold a DIY house install kit for consumers, the EPA...

    That is the fault of the HVAC industry as a whole. The entire industry goes to such great lengths to keep consumers in the dark and withhold access to simple information such as service manuals for...

    Biggest issue with DIY'ers and HVAC is lack of information available. YouTube and online forums have unveiled the "black box magic" which comprises an HVAC system and allowed DIY'ers to not only work...

    Screwing it up, and then learning from it, is called tuition :).

    Oh I agree. People like to throw parts after getting their car scanned at Autozone. Few will take the time to ohm the sensor out. And scopes are out the reach of most every day people, even though...

    MY fault for hiring companies with techs ill equipped to do basic diagnostic and troubleshooting despite possessing appropriate licenses? LOL you guys are too much. Stupid me for thinking the company...

    Generic scan codes? Operate just as you describe. Professionals don't use generic scan codes ;).

    100% agree. For a lot of folks the time value of money is higher than the cost to pay someone to fix the equipment.

    I do wonder what the future holds. Cars for example became so complex that you...

    The fear, uncertainty, and doubt about HVAC equipment/operation is unnecessary. I know the HVAC industry does everything they can to "protect" their trade (ie this thread) and I don't blame them but...

    I think your fears are unfounded. First, the supply houses in general are locking down who they sell to. In my area you must be employed as an HVAC tech working for an established company to buy from...

    The more important question is, when will 410a be banned since they are already phasing out r-134a and that has a lower GWP than 410a.

    I wish the EPA would allow R-290 in resi units. Cheap,...

    Everyone makes mistakes, even stupid ones, when starting out. I think everyone here is being way too hard on him. As the homeowner I would be pissed, thankfully they called for a 2nd opinion. The...
