After a layoff I entered HVAC/R training at a State Tech. School. Spent 2 years in the field as helper/newbie. Hired as general maintenance worker at health care facility, worked for 6 years and now I am finally going to the HVAC department.

While in school and in the field I loved this site. 6 years in general maintenance and midnights I got away from it. Now that I'm back in HVAC looking forward to this site again.

I know there is a bias against general maintenance workers here, but I got exposure to equipment to I wouldn't have seen working primarily on residential equipment, but I'll be glad to be HVAC full time again.
