You’re welcome! I understand that everything at High Performance HVAC is limited and there is so much more to learn about and for me to write about when I get the time for it. Don’t limit yourself to just what is contained on High Performance HVAC as there is so much more to learn as far as HVAC training and learning air conditioning and heating systems. Additionally, some of that knowledge you learn will come with experience so even after studying air conditioning and heating and other areas of home inspecting there is more to learn in the future that only comes with time and experience.

You can also check out some of the HVAC training books we have available in the technicians recommended reading. Even a person with tons of experience uses a book or manual to reference technical data, facts, and figures. I use several resources in writing articles to make sure all the facts are straight and the numbers are correct.

I remember when I was young in the field and fresh from HVAC school where I was at the top of the class. I was a tad bit overconfident and had some misconceptions about things. Field experience definitely honed the book knowledge and made me a better technician. Part of it was figuring things out on your own and the other part is having peers with experience answer some questions. There is a big difference between an HVAC training book and actual field experience but I wouldn’t change how I learned the HVAC trade.

I know there are HVAC tech’s out there who learned the trade without going to any school but I think the best way to learn is to have the foundation of the theory behind you that only comes from studying the book or learning a classroom environment. Things come together much faster that way and the HVAC light bulb turns on you completely understand how things work. HVAC training can be fun if air conditioning and heating systems make you curious. And of course experience is always good to have but that comes with time and be observant and studying resources.

Crawl Spaces and Inspections – Home Inspector HVAC Training

Oh, and be careful when in crawl spaces of old electrical wires which you may thing have been abandoned. Some of these wires are live and bare and will shock you. Attics are another area where great care needs to be taken especially in the summer. The heat in some attics can exceed 150 degrees Fahrenheit and that can be very dangerous. A slight slip in the attic can also put you through a ceiling.

Keep up the good work and study everything about HVAC that you can possibly study. Learn about HVAC, electrical, and other areas and that will make you a great home inspector.
