    You could say the same thing for the pro sections now.

    Let's face it, anyone can go on YouTube and find videos of guys doing a poor job demonstrating things in HVAC already. There's even a couple guys who's videos are exclusively about HVAC and they have picked up quite the following.

    At least this way it is pros for pros and will be moderated, some totally hack video could be removed or torn apart in the comments. The ones that are done well will get a following, instructors could direct students to them so they could see it done in the field and newer guys who aren't being instructed properly would have an invaluable resource.

    I like it. Might even do one myself on pressure switches. Boggles my mind that even 20 & 30 year techs fail to deal with PS issues effectively or even own a digital manometer or magnehelic.

    How long have induced draft furnaces been around?

    Not only would it be good to have a video but also a manual on pressure switches. And with the massive resources of HVAC-TALK an all-encompassing list of pressure switch pressure settings could easily be possible.
    Nothing is magic, it works or doesn't work for a reason.

    This sounds like a good idea to me, we've got to get Feng pro membership and moderator status so he could oversee this new area of the forum.

    This is a great idea! What should the first video be about?

    If it's spring/summer it should be proper refrigerant diagnostics, including the 2 pressures and 4 temps method.
    Head and suction pressures, liquid line temp at condenser and evap, suction line temp at condenser and evap. Then an explanation of how the numbers change with various issues.

    If it's fall winter, the same but for HP or combustion analysis on furnaces.

    That's my vote anyway.
