Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A. Make sure your the contractor you are choosing is knowledgeable about there products and the process of installation.
In this field you often get what you pay for. point of this is if a guy comes in with a bid to you $6,000 under everyone else that is bidding is around $16,000 he more than likely is new to bidding and wont get the job done or will be asking for more money.(We have had a good hand-full of jobs where we had to come in and complete or fix sub-par work from scenarios just like this)
Also don't go for the most over the top supper expensive bid you may get what you pay for, but that's only to an extent.

A. Q:How long does the job take to complete.

Q. How did you decide to get in your line of work?
A. I was a born and raised to be a HVAC professional. My father and business Partner has been in the business for over 35 years. I grew up with HVAC as a typical dinner conversation topic, and going out to jobs with my dad and marveling over power tools, skilled tin work, and Heating and air materials and equipment overflowing in the garage. I started to working in a shop at 14 years building tin fittings, and started on the field at 16 and have been in HVAC ever since. Being a HVAC Professional was just in my blood, and has become my passion.
Q. If you were advising someone who wanted to get into your profession, what would you suggest?
A. To start calling local HVAC company's and looking for helper positions. going to school can help you get a job as well but look for part time work at an HVAC distributor or ware house so you can learn about the materials and equipment that you will be using as an HVAC professional. If you can find a HVAC contractor that needs a part time helper would be best for actual hand on training.
