    Exclamation What jobs are needed in todays economy?

    Besides HVACR what else? I tell my family who all live in the south to get into the pool service or irrigation business. States farther north I would say Well pumps, Water condition even drain cleaning or what about appliance repairs that would be fun lol.

    I read something about that, reusing water from the showers and the faucets and it runs into a filtration system and pumped into the toilet tanks. Seems like a lot of work for toilet water. I would just get a empty drum and put it under my gutter.lol

    If it doesn't go easy, you are not using a big enough hammer.

    Lee Iaccoca In his autobiography suggest to get into Fod Business whenever Recession is there as every one has to eat sandwich.

    If you are HVAC& R Professional You can teach the local technicians which will go long way.
    Carry out energy audit and suggest save energy so that client can share the savings with you.
