The HVAC industry holds a special place in skilled trades.
Our trade is the only one where the tradesman must be highly competent in all other trades; Pipe-fitting, Hydronics, Steam, Electrical, Electronics, Indoor Air Quality, Test and Balance, Site Work, Structural, Rigging, and the toughest of all skills…Customer Diplomacy.
It’s also the only trade where the end user is entirely dependent on your skills.
You won’t find many ‘Weekend Warriors’ tackling a compressor replacement, analyzing a boiler’s combustion gas, or repairing a refrigerant leak.
Home owner or facilities engineer; they leave HVAC to the professionals.
Being that they are at your mercy, don’t you owe them the best service you can provide?
Where does ZenHVAC fit in?
ZenHVAC is not for technicians who don’t have basic industry knowledge; there are many technical schools already doing an excellent job of training our future technicians.
We’re not here to train you on specific makes of equipment; HVAC manufacturers do a great job training technicians on installing and servicing their equipment.
We’re here to address the area in between.
After technical schools teach the future technician basic trade theory, the student is released into the workforce and teamed with a senior technician to learn how to apply the theory in the ‘real’ world.
Unfortunately there are few, if any, standards at this point.
The lack of training standards results in future technicians not only picking up valuable knowledge, but also bad habits and incorrect knowledge.
We tie theory to the real-world using fast, easy to understand, methods.
We realize many of you have a life outside of HVAC.
Our articles and videos are short, to the point, and entertaining. And more importantly, contain only information you need to know.
Let us help you become the best technician you can be.
