Tim is presenting information about air to a group of students.
Based on a fixed mass of air (the pound or kg), there exists
a relationship between volume, dry bulb ~ wet bulb temperatures,
due point, humidity, water content, and energy content. This
technology is fundamental and should be understood by all HVAC
technicians ... and yet less than 10% of the technicians out
there understand it.
Reardon has spent thousands of hours in the classroom teaching
technology. He was recently working with a major HVAC manufacturer
when he was given the job of developing an evaluation process
that would test the theoretical understanding of the very people
who size, install, tune, and repair residential and light commercial
heating & cooling systems.
200 HVAC trades people took the evaluation tests, and the average
score ended up being a very disappointing 38.2%. To be thought
of as being competent in this field, a trades person should
score well over 70% on such tests.
does this mean to you?
all probability, the HVAC technicians working for you do not
understand HVAC technology! As a result, your customers at risk
of wasting energy, shortening the life of their equipment, not
enjoying the maximum comfortable their systems are capable of

don't need training, that they have been doing this work for
many ~ many years and they know everything they need to know."
Well, the fact is ... many of them have been working in this

do students say about Tim's training?
think he did a great job., I learned a lot and he covered everything
I asked ... great job (Scott S. Technician)
class! Perfect method of introducing new information. (Robert
L. U.S. Coast Guard)
a lot more than most courses ... and everyone in class participated
in the troubleshooting exercises ... it was a lot of fun and
will defiantly help me solve problems in the future. (Carl N.
class is perfect for someone with some hands-on experience ...
I now understand the "why" of why things work the
way they do. (Dan S. Technician)
was fantastic! Great material, presented well, a very knowledgeable
teacher. (Richard V. P.E.)
enjoyed looking at real world problems and the different techniques
we can use to troubleshoot them ... ways of thinking "outside
the box". (Steven B. Engineer)
Technologies offers HVAC Training!
heating and cooling systems are unbelievably complex. We've moved
away from simple relays and contractors to turn on and off various
components and now use electronics. We have thermostats that actually
"learn" how your home responds to a call for heat or cooling,
and over a period of a few days, these learning thermostats actually
adjust their program so your home arrives at a program temperature
"on time". Energy efficient "ECM"
motors are programmed to deliver the exact amount of air for maximum
performance and efficiency. Heat Pumps and Cooling systems utilize
equipment with bigger inside and outside coils, smaller displacement
compressors, and new ozone friendly refrigerants, all of which work
together to move more BTU's while using less energy to do it.
future of HVAC belongs to the technician who understands the science
associated with this field. Learning by doing just doesn't cut it
anymore. To be a really good technician you need to understand
and use HVAC science right down to the fundamental theories
... and that means going to school! And it's not just us, or the
manufacturers saying this, local .. state .. and federal regulations
mandate that systems be properly designed, installed, repaired,
and adjusted so the consumer receives maximum performance and comfort
while consuming the least amount of energy possible.
AC refrigeration like you never thought you could.
You will know what's
happening in every nook~and~cranny of
the refrigeration circuit in an air conditioning system.
with our training, you'll understand why statements
like these should never be used:
"Perfect ... a 40 degree cooling
"Beautiful ... a beer can
cold suction line."
"Your all set, it's blowing ice cold air and it feels
good to me."
theory & troubleshooting skills are thought to be the most important
skills for today's HVAC technician.
HVAC systems are powered, controlled,
and regulated by electricity. To be a successful technician,
you must understand electricity - how it works, what physical
laws control it, and how to hunt down and fix problems.
have a "Rock~Solid" training program where we will
hammer you with important technical information
time and time again until you know that information cold.
After taking our electrical course,
you will have the ability to (as we put it) "think like
an electron" - and yes - you will be able to effectively
hunt down and fix both simple and complex electrical control
