    Just recently got into the HVAC due to a new job i took in Oklahoma city, they asked me if i would take the course and get my EPA certification and of course i said yes anything to boost my resume. I have been a licenses boiler operator in MN for the past 8 years, at 25 i was the youngest Cheif A in the state and possibly still the youngest. Now that i have my epa certification i have been working on small refrigeration units like pop machines and refrigerators. Most of the large stuff i've delt with mainly has dirty condensor issues. last week i did a complete change out of a compressor and condensor unit in a refrigerator drawer in my works cafateria. I think it went awesome got my refrigerant all recovered and everything wired up. Its been working great ever since. pretty proud of myself.

    I am not really a new guest but I have never really felt the need to post anything. But to give a quick run down on myself my father was a refrigeration mechanic. He encouraged me to take the HVAC course at the county secondary level vocational school. After completion I worked one summer in apartment maintenance then left the trade for the next six years. For the first five of the last eleven years I worked for a family own three to five man operation. Then for the next five I worked for a handy man service company being the lead HVAC and plumber. This is my first year working for a high volume big name company. It is my hopes to perfect my skills as an HVAC tech before diving in deeper into the field of controls. I am currently in a Technical school Associates program for building automation.

    So, how do you bring your post count up and give pertinent information for the MC to consider? Easy, post in this thread about your experiences and the jobs you have been on. Speak to each other about how and why you decided to get into this business and how you expect to advance in this trade. Tech School?? Talk about your classed and what you were taught.

    Before you know it your 15 will be 60. Good luck and Welcome to H-Talk.

    New to HVAC...

    I started the local HVAC tech school this past summer. I have absolutely no background in this industry but this has been something I've always wanted to do. Previous to starting school, I worked in business sales for a major telecommunication company for ten years. After being laid off, I realized that I must learn a skill so that I can take care of my family. This is a very nontraditional route for women but after all the research I've done...I'm up for the challenge and look forward to learning everything I can!!

    Hello. Looks like I have made the mistake of replying to a post before I was supposed to. I guess I was over anxious to see if I could help someone but now I have re-read the rules (a little slower). I graduated from tech school in 98. I have been working mainly service and repair only since late 2000. I have come to realize that experiance comes from experiances, not years. So many people give their "years of experiance" as proof of how good they are. I realize normally the more years you have, the more experiances you have, but I believe that some techs have way more experiances in a shorter amount of time than others. It depends on what company you work for and what type of equipment is popular in your area. Anyway I am glad to be here.
