    Be a knowledge sponge. Use your mech knowledge to make good controls decisions. Don't do start-up and trouble shooting remotely. Don't get hung up on any one system, learn the technology instead.

    You already have an ideal background.

    I would focus on two things.

    Learning how to translate HVAC systems knowledge to BAS code implementation. This skill pays extremly well.

    Also I would learn how the BAS business works in general. Finanicals, operational stuff. This makes you prime to lead a team of techs if you so chose further along in your career.
