    My username says it all!

    Hello all!

    I have been lurking through this board for a while now. I like what I have read and decided to join in.

    I am a student. Not the full blown HVAC course. I am almost finished with a troubleshooting and maintenance course.
    I currently install and work on automatic gate operators. I enjoy troubleshooting and doing this gave me the courage to learn about HVAC.

    I also own rental properties, so I have a need to be able to repair my own equipment. This is the one area I have the most expense in, since I couldn't do it myself.

    Looking forward to learning more from all of you!

    Thanks!

    Don't worry. Not a DIY. I just earned my Universal Certification two weeks ago. I bought my first jug of R-22 and charged my first unit Friday.

    I intend on getting into this trade because automated gates aren't as in demand as HVAC and not quite as interesting!

    If you decide to stay, your username will soon be obsolete and meaningless. Everyone here was at one time the FNG.

    Welcome.

    If you are getting into HVAC solely to save money, you may have made the wrong decision. You will find that the investment in tools, instruments and education will far surpass the costs of repair for most things.

    If you are looking at a career change,then I'd say welcome.

    There are some bright guys here, but they let goobers like myself hang out here, too.

    Compared to what I used to be, I am. It's all relevant, unlike your posts
