    I would recommend spending time on this forum rather than YouTube.

    Interact on other threads showing you are in the trade and have an active interest. Then you can apply for ProStatus, which will open up a bunch of other threads to you.

    I'd still love to start a channel showing day to day jobs. Not a DIY instructional thing but just showing the day to day life for a tech.

    The conventional view serves to protect us from the painful job of thinking.

    There are too few to mention.

    I'm not sure about the motivation for making HVAC YouTube videos. Is it the 15 minutes of fame? Is it the clicks for ad revenue? Is it to show your friends?

    Most of these guys need to take a class in film making and narration. It is annoying to watch someone try to stumble through a diagnosis, showing improper technique and a lack of professional demeanor. This is why there are standards for instructors.

    What is needed:

    1) KNOW what you are doing. This is rarely seen in these videos.
    2) Plan to show the process, correctly.
    3) Recap what was done in a clear, concise manner.

    There is a reason that you go to school to learn media production and teaching.

    It is amazing how poor a representation of the actual system is being represented there.

    No one has the proportional volumes of the three substances, especially the amount of water, in a single location in a system. In fact, no one would have those given proportions in a system.

    In order to properly represent a system under a POE changeout, you would have to replicate the very large volume of POE, the small residue of MO, and the tiny amount of water that would remain after a good vacuuuming.

    The one thing it DOES illustrate is how people used to view this conversion from MO to POE just three years ago, when the video was made. In my case, our Co has changed out condenser and coil combinations with some fairly long linesets at a senior apartment facility, and not one of those has had an issue. We have been doing this for about seven years now. Most of the old systems were the Lennox splits with the leaking coil issue.

    Its fun to mix stuff. But in the real systems, it is much different.

    I actually have picked up some really good info from the site of Tech Tools, hosted by their professionals.
    I would highly recommend them for purchase of stuff, and then a very comprehensive tutorial on its use
    I buy the best,and latest,and not only do they service what they sell, but they have expert tutorials.
    Please check them,if you want to learn stuff

    Give the customer what they pay for.


    Oh one more thing... that process has never caused a problem....and we have well over a decade in dealing with these cheap customers.

    YouTube pays me nothing so I give the viewers what they pay for.

    I also roll on belts sometimes, don't tell anyone...
