've been a professional HVAC mechanic since 1995, and this will be a list of articles that I've written about heating and air conditioning, tips for homeowners, tools, and some insights into the day to day lives of a HVAC Service Technician
Replacing a central heating and air conditioning system is a major expense, and these days, because of the change in environmental laws, the choices are getting much tougher for homeowners.
I'm not usually an installation guy. I'm the service and repair guy. It's my experience that there is nothing worse that you could do than to hire someone to install or service your air conditioner that isn't a certified and well trained professional. It will always cost you more in the end if you hire a shade tree mechanic.
Roofing contractors and spray in insulation guys are a menace to your home central heating and air conditioning system. Please read this article if you are having work done to your home, it could very well save you a ton of money and misery.
Modern high efficiency equipment made in the USA is pretty horrible; and this explains why this is so. Hopefully, it will get better in time. If not, then American HVAC manufacturing will suffer greatly.
I got asked a question about a device that I'd talked about, that is what hvac guys call a "widow maker." It's a dangerous electrical adapter that nobody wants to use, but we sometimes have to use.
Maintaining your central air conditioning system should be a priority, and it's not hard to do. Here's some simple tips to help you out.
Heat Pumps are the way to go, and I mean that. They are safer for heating than gas heat, and cheaper to operate than electric heat. They are just more advanced air conditioning and heating systems.
Most people do not know about mini split systems, but they are nearly always heat pumps, and are far more cost effective than one big central hvac system.
Ambiance Eco Green is a specific brand of mini split heat pumps, and they are very, very smart buys; highly efficient, and supremely reliable
Here's a little description of a typical day for a Service Tech.
I created this checklist for both the homeowner - so that he or she can be certain that they are getting good service, and their money's worth with an air conditioning maintenance agreement, or just a service call for a tune up; but I also created this checklist for newer technicians.
This is a tale concerning how overworked an hvac service technician can become during the early Summer, and how sometimes the best of efforts and intentions aren't enough to please an angry customer.
Contrary to the designs and purposes of the international Montreal Protocol, refrigerant 22 equipment is still being manufactured RIGHT NOW, the loophole is that it can be made and then shipped - so long as it contains no refrigerant. So they charge it with nitrogen in order to get around international law. This can save YOU money if you need new r 22 equipment, but only if you and your contractor know about it.
The very best hvac mechanics and service companies to not buy advertising in phone books - they are the BEST, and so they do NOT have to advertise!
