    Looking to get into hvac controls

    Hey everyone I was just wondering if anyone had any suggestions for hvac controls contractors that I could apply for in the south jersey/ pa area. I've already applied at johnson controls and Honeywell but are there any others that I should look into.

    Automated Logic has a branch out there, and I'm sure Carrier is as well. Can't help much on local mechanical outfits, but look into them as well.

    To keep it basic, there two Job types: 1) Controls Engineer-Technician or DDC Engineer/Programmer (college degree), 2) Controls Technician (HS degree). I've seen many solid DDC guys in position #1 w/o college degree. College degree helps if you want to get into management.

    Work Responsibilities: programming, graphics, installation, start-up commissioning, diagnosing, and repair of environmental-control systems, utilizing knowledge of electronics, direct digital control, airflow, hydronics, refrigeration theory, control and mechanical techniques.

    I'm seeing a new job requirement: "IT System Specialists". They want knowledge of the HVAC + Integration + the IT stuff: "Develop and maintain SQL server data base; Interface with customer IT departments for data base connectivity; install and set-up switches, routers, computers; write new or update existing code for SQL database, XML, Java, VBA, and .NET applications; webpage Development" If you like and can do that - the future is yours.

    Here's a "Who Who in the Zoo"
    Open System Integrator
    Building Automation, IT Integration, Enterprise System and Management (ESM), Utility Metering and Reporting,
    Graphical User Interfaces, Retrofit Control Installation.
    Note: Tridium makes it 'OPEN'

    Bldg. Automation Manufactures
    Honeywell, Siemens, Distech Controls, Reliable Controls, Alteron (part of Honeywell), Schnieder Electric

    MEP Companies (Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing)
