rquad, glad to have you on the site! For a real first step you might want to follow pierre1811 to the ARP section of the main menu. If he starts talking about flying condensers with those guys, it will be more than a kicking. He's gonna need some backup .
Cause a small distraction for him. You might want to share YOUR STORY with them.
Hooo-boy, flying condensers? I'm over my head already.
BTW, I just passed my first HVAC lesson test--aced it.
