    Most of the ones I have seen lately have
    been reading porn in between watching movies on the dvd player and playing games on the computor in the contol rooms ,of course making 40k-50k a yr with no overtime makes it all bearable and no late night call outs

    Stationary Engineer: a snipe that never goes to sea.

    • Electricity makes refrigeration happen.
    • Refrigeration makes the HVAC psychrometric process happen.
    • HVAC pyschrometrics is what makes indoor human comfort happen...IF the ducts AND the building envelope cooperate.


    A building is NOT beautiful unless it is also comfortable.

    Only if they are Union ! Otherwise they do it themselves since some are able to multi task quite well and don't need to sell tickets to watch them work lol
