Above, 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.
Over 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

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
Tim says: "Many
self-proclaimed technicians state that
they 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 business ... and
doing things "wrong", for many ~ many

What do students say about Tim's
think he did a great job., I learned a lot
and he covered everything I asked ... great
job (Scott S. Technician)
Great class! Perfect method of
introducing new information. (Robert L.
U.S. Coast Guard)
Learned 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. Technician)
This 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.
Instructor was fantastic! Great
material, presented well, a very
knowledgeable teacher. (Richard V.
I enjoyed looking at real world
problems and the different techniques we
can use to troubleshoot them ... ways of
thinking "outside the box". (Steven B.

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.
The 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.
