hey yall, I have made my way around the site a few times looking for answers, decided to introduce myself, get the post count up and get the pro membership so that I will be able to easier gain some insight into issues we are running into. Started out in the HVAC field when i was about 12 years old running ductwork for an uncle on weekends and during the summers. High school came and went, and with college nowhere in sight i joined the US Marine Corps. I spent 4 years there as a diesel mech in 29 palms CA and a tour to Iraq in 2008. I ended my contract and continued the work as a gov contractor for about 2 years as I went to school for HVAC/Refrigeration and earned my associates. I took the advice of my father who has been in the business for about 30+ years and got into the service side of the trade. I have been working for a commercial company for about a year, maintaining 4 college campuses with another technician. I kind of skipped the residential area, except side jobs here and there and have been in the commercial/ industrial work. Being on big campus has helped out tremendously as we have a little bit of everything from a 70's carrier where every wire either black or yellow to some brand new yorks and tranes. I'm doing what i can and gaining every bit and piece of knowledge from my old man before he forgets it all, HA! Any help from yall is always greatly appreciated.
