    Hi everyone,
    quick question here, any input would be highly, highly appreciated. I am 23, have a good job, etc, make about $65K. I've always been interested in HVAC, I would like to learn more about it, just for myself plus I would like to have a couple of extra skills. I live in Chicago. What if I don't want to get certified, just want to learn for myself. What's a good route to take, so I can take some classes in the evenings and learn some useful, practical stuff. May be somebody knows good places to inquire in Chicago area. What would you do in your area? Would just going to a local community college do the trick? Again, thanks a lot for any advice. Have a good one!! Andy

    I would've guessed Belmont & Central.

    Schaumburg area here.

    We should have a Chicago area HVAC-talk member meeting. I see lots of people here from our area.
