    If I'm a "hack" for putting a 40mfd instead of the recommended 35mfd, to get someone's A/C on for the night until the supply house opens the next day, then so be it.

    I work in residential and light commercial, the lifting is not bad at all IMO. The heaviest things that I work with are the ACs and Furnaces. The ACs weigh between 150-250 I believe and the furnaces...

    Make your self indispensable to where they can't get rid of you (great help is always tough to find). If you don't already do the little things that separate you from the rest of the crowd (show up...

    This couldn't have been explained any better. It's amazing how many times employees, friends, customers say we must be raking in the dough!

    Few questions for you guys..

    I have the analog gauges and am going to be switching to digitals fairly soon. Do most digital gauges double as a micron gauge as well? How about measuring nitrogen...

    Couldn't agree with you more. I don't think there is anything as disappointing as leaving tools behind.

    I've made a big mistake by not letting the permanent filters dry before I put them back in...

    Do you still work in OK? I'm in Tulsa/Bixby, I love working here in Oklahoma because of the extreme temperatures; however, on new construction the codes here are a joke!

    Well I've been having a house giving me fits with the pan switch shutting off the unit. Found out that it was out of level and was leaking water pretty bad. Had my guys go over there this morning and...
