Hello everyone. Been lurking in the shadows from time to time thought I'd finally say hi.
What brings me here you ask? Well, currently I work as firefighter. When I first started out as a volunteer years ago, several of the members were in both the HVAC as well as plumbing fields. That eventually lead to me working for one of them as first a shop boy, then eventually a helper in the field. I learned a lot about HVAC, why it never ends well when you date the boss's daughter, and many other things.
Fast forward several years. At my present assignment, one of my coworkers came from the HVAC field prior to getting on with the fire department. He continued to do HVAC work on the side, on a purely word of mouth basis. He is licensed in the state of Virginia as a HVAC Master Tradesman, insured, and his business is registered with the state. Recently he approached me about helping him expand the business. So far I'm acting as a helper and I'm going to be handling the marketing end of things. I realize I have a LOT to learn, and find this forum to be a great resource. Hopefully over time I can help contribute here.
