I'm a second generation HVAC professional on the wholesale side of the counter. I worked in the warehouse of of a supply house part-time for about 8 years while going to school. I went full time in the warehouse for about a year before moving up to the counter. That was about a year and a half ago.
Never never gave two about this stuff before going into sales, but now I'm frantically trying to learn this stuff. I've found the open forums to be a wealth of information and hope to get my post count up to join the Educational forums.

New to site
I started around 3 years ago in this business. I have a degree in bus admin, a degree in industrial technology concentration in HVAC, and a tech cert in industrial maintenance. I have found that this is the hardest industry to get started in. I started with a little three man crew, then moved to a multi-billion dollar company. With the larger company I was given the most horrible jobs no one wanted to do. I did them till I got enough hours to get my licenses. While in school I fixed family and friends ac and furnaces for free with my school books beside me lol. I learned a lot by doing that. Then while I was with the larger company doing the ****ty jobs I was getting a ton of side work fixing anything and everything I was given. Needless to say once the company found out the GM moved me to a service van and then the service manager kept holding me back, but I did not allow that to stop me. I continued to read and learn. I left that company and started my own heating and air company. In the last six months I've learned to set rooftop units, make duct systems, and etc. I have surprised a lot of people that said I was worthless cause I went to school for HVAC instead of doing it the hard way. Needless to say I've learned a lot and I've got a lot more to learn, but I'm so ready for that journey just to prove all the people that doubted me wrong. I can say I truly love the HVAC world and I crave for more knowledge to become a leader in the HVAC world.

I live up in "Boilerville" and work for an Allied distributor that is not Capitol. Since it's us and them, I've narrowed it mightily. Boiler Up! Hammer Down!
