Ive posted a few times in different areas but I haven't introduced myself so here it goes. Hello I have been in this field for 12 years and have done service and installation of residential systems. In 2004 I opened my own shop figuring it would be easy money. after all look at all of the money my boss was making off of me right. It has been a tough uphill battle but every year we grow so I must be doing something right. I am a terrible writer so posting on here has seemed to hard to bother with but now I realize that you can't live in a bubble so I am giving it a go. I know that with all of the knowledge on here it can only make me better for it. Thanks.

Ever hear of someone or something giving you the hee-bee-gee-bee's ?
Sort of like having a real weird feeling or six sense.
Cool user name I thought.

Thanks for the welcome. I just couldn't come up with anything else. I am new to online forums so I typed the first thing that came to mind. Plus looks like you'll remember it

There really isn't a legitimate excuse for not doing the job correctly!

I started as an electrician/data comm tech at 16. Worked into programming PBX's and key systems(telephone systems), did that for 6 years, had my own business, R.I.P. Baseline Communications... and had been doing HVAC controls installs for 4 years after that, untill a company I was working for laid me off and a great company picked me up a year ago doing programming and front end integrations. They have sent me to Niagara AX, Distech GFX, passed both, and have been trying to learn as much as I can ever since. I am a project manager doing a large project for the Corps of Engineers at a nearby millitary base. We are using Smart Servers(2.0) with Distech ecp-203, 300, 400, 500's with some locations using Honeywell7350H's with a S.S.2.0. Learning a ton!
I take tech manuals home and read them
When it is said that BacNet is a better protocol than LonWorks, I die a little more inside.

I have been in the electrical bussiness ever sense I got out of high school I went through a four year apprenticeship program and in 2002 I started my own electrical contracting company and I wanted to get into hvac service work also so I took a hvacr program through penn-foster and learned some but not what I wanted which was hands on so I took another program through TN Tech. at night and completed that just a couple of weeks ago and I learned a lot so now I'm tooling up and doing a little service work but I still have a lot to learn this indusrty is like the electrical industry new stuff keeps coming out and things change so you never really stop learning so I was hoping maybe you guys on here could help me out when I need it some of my questions might seem dumb to most of you but try to remember I'm new to the industry and if you need help with anything electrical I would be glad to help you guys out. Thanks

I am a new member (obviously). I have been in the HVAC business for over 15 years in the DFW area. I really enjoy this work and love my new job as a technical service advisor. I am NATE certified in A/C, H/P, and air distribution. I am also a proctor for NATE and ESCO. I really look forward to contributing and networking with others who share my passion on this site.

Nice to see you finally post here. It may have saved you a little from this afternoon's debacle if you posted here first if you get my drift.
