    pro stat

    hay Dad i have bin in the field since 89 as a tech, i remeber the old contols with cube relays and milivolt generator gas valve,still used on fire logs i have Nate, geo, heat pump, mr slim , air flow, install,service ect... I am on this site to learn more about new trends, maby help other techs with questions, im not happy home owner, and i dont own my own bussiness, i dont know it all ,just because ive ben arround a wile does not mean i know it all I call tech support like every one els just not as often as i used to but when new equipment come out like TAM's from trane or greenspeed from carrier or new stuff from nutone panasonic , clean air effects , honeywell new pos steam Humidifire, April air new steam and their new stats , all kinds of equipment comes out all the time its nice to see a tool like hvac talk , i would like to use it moore. I hope you will allow me into tech chats and other forums. as you can see by some of my comments im not a home owner they would not know about the cube relays on the controll boards, the would not know that you have to know the line set length to charge a mitsu city electric system and they would not know the japenies come and inspect your first install at least they used to when it first came out , and they did that before they would let you get certifycation to service them . home owners don't know you have to turn your power off to get your dip switches to re set they don't know that if the reversing valve has more then 5 degrees differnce between the comon suction and suction means its not fully shifted . well we know this stuff , i hope that i have said enough to you that wer off to a good start , i would like to build trust with hvac talk thank you

    I also am ME from UCSB. Except I am a grey beard - graduated 1974. Did solar hot water design build contracting and sales for 10 years, sold commercial HVAC equipment for 4 years, then designed commercial and industrial HVAC for over 15 years. In the last 6 years I benefited from being able to work together with maintenance and construction tradesmen.

    Don't we love HVAC because you never stop learning? There is so much to know that no one will ever know it all. It is a creative field which makes it fun. It also causes everyone to have their own opinion which sometimes can be a problem.

    what ever you do: Do NOT start a thread asking "How Long....

    Cool Who Choice is

    I started the trade back in 1982 in Fremont California working the Press my sophmore year in High School then later, I went to the old UTI school in Arizona. I graduated then worked at a ma and pa shop in Half Moon Bay California called Wilsons Sheetmetal. Within a year I was aproached by the Sheetmetal Union and started the apprenticeship. Then transfered to Seattle and completed my 5 year apprenticeship with Local 66 Sheetmetal Workers Union. After 9/11 I started the 5 year HVAC Apprenticeship in the Plumber Fitters Union. Somewhere in the middle I studies accounting and had my own business for 5 years. I currently work for the best mechanical Contractor in the Northwest. If I had balls I might be further ahead, but I don't. In any case there is a lot of DO NOT DO'S on this site.
