LocationOhio ExperienceStarted around 1958 in the HVAC industry. Started from scratch and built up a small 37 man corporation dealing in all facets of HVAC. Hot water boilers,steam generators,gas,oil and electric. Coal and woodfired equipment also. In the A/C refrigeration lines we also serviced gas and electric fired airconditioning along with various forms of refrigeration and process piping. Most of the work was commercial/industrial with a good residential base.
We were into energy savings before that was a popular item since I always considered energy savings as a company policy. Our use of the best test equipment and proper education of employees in the use of that equipment was of the up most importance.
Naturally plumbing and electric also came into play during our installs and a license was always maintained in all respectful catagories.
My list of certifications
Electrical Safety Inspector
HVAC Mechanical Inspector
Chief Building Inspector
I also have a Educational Certificate which allows me to teach in various school settings.
For various manufactures I am considered a field engineer. A field engineer differs from a regular engineer in the fact that after the regular engineers do the work in a corporate setting and when the equipment does not work as designed when installed I am sent out to not only find out why its not working but also to effect a repair and report results back to the corporate entity.

I am somewhat retired now but I do teach at a local university in the HVAC engineering department doing special specific seminars when I feel like it. I teach AuGratis meaning I work for free.
I figure it is a good idea to give some time back to a industry that has given me so much pleasure over the years. Mini BioSomewhat Retired Expert ForumHeating & Air Conditioning
