I mert a guy who got screwed out of a good paying job so he went to HVAC school. Got an Assoc Deg.
I met up with him and he asked for help on a five ton scroll comp change out. I helped him no charge. Showed how to use 1/2" evac hoses and a BlueVac with CRTs.
He helped with a four ton install. Taught him pump over and purging oil out of lines. Also showed him how to heat sink a service valve and how to use a #2 torch tip on oxy/accy,
Used my 557 to conduct a press test for leaks ,
You get the idea.
Guy is in his early fifties and takes instruction well.
TODAY AT ONE OF HIS JOBS HI INTRODUCED ME TO THE H.O. AS HIS MENTOR.
I was flattered and embarrassed at the same time.
I tried to coach him on how to approach the HO that the AC was 25 years old and it was in need of replacement,
hE WAS NOT ASSERTIVE SO i HAD TO JUMP IN.
Hope he gets the job. He;s a good guy.
Heh, ME a MENTOR,,,,go figure.
