    Gentlemen, I think we got a little off topic...

    I'm new to the field and have about 8 months eperience and 2 weeks trade school. I've been offered a job as a start up man for a local ac company. he says they are very large homes, 4 - 5 units per home. what all do start ups consist of? are there any kind of check lists or anything of that sort? Thanks

    I also think everyone has established he is new and that his company should be training him. Do you gents remember when YOU were in his shoes? Let us not bicker amongst ourselves and maybe help this lad...

    pdavis, first and above all else do a visual inspection with whomever is training you.... Make sure high and low lines are connected completely. Ask your trainer if the installer vacuumed the lines down and released the freon. Check all electrical for frey or improper connection... Just go over the entire system like you where installing it. Once you have done that set the Stat to call for heat and make sure the furnace goes through proper operation, your trainer will be able to explain as you go.

    There is a lot to go through as the others have stated. Just do your best and if you see something that might look to be wrong to you... speak up. You can't learn without asking questions. "A day gone by that you have not learned something... is a day wasted!"

    I would also carry with you the furnace and air conditioner manual's that go with each type of equipment your company install's. put these in a 3 ring binder as they come in handy when you are in doubt on some things. some of these manuals even tell you things the homeowner should not know, not that that is a bad thing but it does get into alot of technical questions and that is where experiance comes in play. It is as not hard as these guy's make it seem to be. Trust me. We were all new to the feild at one time or another and some of them here forget that and seem to like to play super tech. They are the ones to stay away from, Just ask to be shown once or twice and you'll learn alot. Just remember to make yourself up the 3 ring binder with all the info. One binder for furnaces the other for air and heat pumps. you'll be glad you did. Good day and have fun..
