    Hmm

    I've been installing HVAC equipment for 2.5 years and really love what I do but I want to know all there is to know about how they work and how to troubleshoot and repair them. I've been taking a Thompson course for a couple of months and I'm doing pretty good so far. I know how to charge by superheat or weight and I understand the basics when it comes to air conditioning. I need someone to explain to me in Laymens terms about pressure and temp and sat.temp,latent heat and so on.I'm 39 yrs. old and want to be able to, some day, be a service guy. Can some one with a good heart and great teaching ability be my mentor? Please help. My e-mail address is swaa88earthlink.net If interested please contact me.

    Be careful what you ask for.

    R12rules will be along shortly because you used the magic word.

    Try starting a thread called "Mentor needed".

    Fill out your profile, so people will know where you are.

    Keep it general.

    Go read everything in the "For your Interest" forum.

    Have you got Modern Refrigeration or Air Conditioning & Refrigeration Technology?

    Go to the For your interest section here and read all the articles Norm and other have some very informative articles about SH and SC.

    You can also do a search here and find many threads about almost any thing you want to know about this industry.

    Good.
    Read it very slowly, one page at a time.
    There is a glossary in the back of the book.
    Be sure you use it.
    When you get to a concept you don't understand, post a question in the appropriate forum.
    Be sure you have done your homework.
    You will get help, if you ask.

    Thank you, I give it a try. Do you think you could give me answers or maybe some of your experience in the field? Another words could you be my answer guy (or Mentor) because I'm trying to learn all I can so I can move up my company's ladder and honestly be the best technician in my company? My email is swaa88earthlink.net Thanks for you advice. Roger

    I'm pretty regular on this forum.
    Post specific questions, one at a time, between reading.

    If I don't answer it, somebody else will.

    There are quite a few regulars with a huge knowledge base.

    As long as you don't come across as a homeowner trying to save a buck, then your questions will be answered.

    As for me becoming your mentor, I guess I sort of already am.

    Put your email in your profile. Thanks bwal2
    That way it will be a little better spam-proofed.

    Read and ask questions.

    Is there a school in your area?

    You are in the trade,so sign up for the Pro's forum,a lot of your questions likely won't or shouldn't be answered here.
