Man I thought I knew a few thing or two about HVAC, but ever since I got on to hvac-talk.com I know crap!!! Okay so here's the questions for ALL experts and pros:
What three areas MUST I need to get good at in order to be successful in HVAC???
There's so many things to learn, but I don't know where to start.
Thanks for all advice.
the $ is in service , repair, and replacements, concentrate on those areas. the reason there are so many problems with duct systems is most people don't want to spend the money to do it right! but again the money is in service/repair/replacements. in the residential market, no money in installing duct. plus you'll have a much longer shelve life with service!, plus keep on top of the new products being introduced.
As has been said already, you need to know all the technical stuff.
From a homeowner's perspective:
1. Whatever you do, whatever you specialize in, do it right.
2. If you have to charge more to do quality work, then charge more.
3. Let some other contractors take the "low bid" customers.
4. Don't BS your customers.
This trade is constantly evolving constantly growing. The first thing you should do is learn how to learn. You will be learning throughout your lifetime. Enjoy it even if it is frustrating at times. good luck
Well said Miss Crabtree. I often find myself distracted from the subject matter due to the grammatical errors posted here by those who place little to no value in the proper use of the English language, punctuation or spelling. It's about time someone stood up for the important little things that make a civilized world tick
I couldn't help myself
