    You will need a state mechanical contractors lic. You have to apply to take it. If your application is accepted you take a 6 hour test. Make a 70 and pass.
    Please step AWAY from the condensing unit.

    OR

    Pay James3528 a hundred bucks to take the test for you. He needs the money. He's trying to support 2 poodles.

    could you repeat that, I didn't quite get it the first time.
    The way we build has a greater impact on our comfort, energy consumption and IAQ than any HVAC system we install.

    When I took the test, it was open book. It has practically nothing to do with refrigeration. It's all about the codes. There were maybe 5 questions about air conditioning. If you were book smart and knew nothing about HVAC you could pass this test. However, if you were the albert einstein of HVAC but were not book smart you'll probaly not pass.


    Example question:
    If you install a gas unit heater in a garage what is the minimum clearance from the wall a) 4" b) 8" c) 12" d) 16"

    or

    A thermostatic expansion valve controls A)superheat b)pressure c) subcooling d) none of the above


    If you know how to find the stuff in the books, it's a breeze. You can get all of the books need at Engineers Book store in Atlanta. I think they sell to GA tech students. You'll about 500 dollars on books.

    The test is just one part. Getting to take the test is the first part. Red, I would say none of the things you listed will do you any good. Basically you need a sponsor.

    Hell, you're in Beaufort? . It's like you are already in Savannah. It's great ain't it? A bad day on the SC or GA coast is better than a good day in Pitts- burgh.
