    When it is said that BacNet is a better protocol than LonWorks, I die a little more inside.

    Hi All! Well My First post here. I am 41, Like Long walks on the beach... oops wrong forum.

    I started at 16 @ night @ San Jose City College in 1986. Worked in a wholesale house from 18-24 years old.
    Have worked for building owners in house, Contractors Large and small. Had my own Sales and contracting business for 5 yrs. Now back to working for some one else. Im so old, my Epa card has 4 digits.

    I can play with Vfd's, 100+hp motors, Air Balancing, Pneumatics, and Teach a 1st year apprentice they do not need a 40lb tool bag to do a service call. Located in the San Francisco Bay Area.

    I know r22 is gone, but I had this name for awhile in a nonrelated vbulletin forum.. thx

    It depends on the load the committee has. It could take a week or three. Right now the committee is pushing them out pretty quick so I would say by this time next week you will have your pro status if you qualify.

    I have won numerous speed reading contest lol naw I know there is a lot of in but id like to come in with more than I learned from school. Then I will continue to read and become more and more knowledged at hvac systems. I want to know the most as possible so when I'm talking to a customer I am confident so I can make the sale.

    It's been five weeks now working my new position. Everyday is interesting as I get back into this field. I worked low temperature R-12, R-502 & back in the 80's-90's over a period of 17 years as part of my responsibilities. Some R404A on newer equipment too.

    This past week another interesting job. We have a ice cream shop in town. The owner makes all of his own product. He has a huge garage with a few walk-in freezers & at least one walk-in refrigerator and three race cars! Unit diagnosed with a defective compressor on an old R-12 Tecumseh condensing skid which was converted to R409A at some point in the past. I was tasked to install a new Copeland compressor. The install went well along with the new tubing arrangements. Purge, pressure test, evacuate & recharge, mostly very basic work. Of course no job goes easy as I discovered a defective fan motor upon start up. A box fan kept the condenser cool overnight, new fan motor installed on Sat morning. Refrig temps at 37F. The customer back in business. I am rewarded with a dish of the best ice cream in town.
