Experience in industry


B

Bob Pietrangelo

I was just wondering if everyone that is currently posting here can give
what experience they have in the industry and current position.

We did this a while back and it made it alot easier in knowing each other.

Hell, I think I am going back to Mel days.

I own a residential HVAC company that does mostly R&R and preventive
maintenance, we have 6 employees. About 10% of our work is commercial,
mainly the business' of our resi customers.
Most of our work is high end forced air, with an emphasis on proper design
and IAQ issues. We perform preventive maintenance for about a third of our
customers so there is lots of room for growth. Our hydronics is growing in
leaps and bounds, with a strong empasis on radiant heat, condensing boilers,
zoning, and controls.

We do both commercial and residential HVAC/R. I've been in my area for
going on 10 years doing mostly commercial service and AOR. We expanded into
residential in 2003 and have grown considerably in that area, we have 5
employees. We too focus on higher end equipment but have picked up some RNC
business as well. It's difficult to get a GC to upgrade but we've had some
success in custom homes. Our PM agreement program is in it's infancy, with
only about 10%. It's an area we're focusing on and hope to expand it and
consistently generate leads.

I was just wondering if everyone that is currently posting here can give
what experience they have in the industry and current position.

I started in 1988 with a small refrigeration shop doing installs,
graduated to service and left that company in 2001. I now work for
one of the big 3 or 4 manufacturers as a service tech. I miss doing
refrigeration work, always something to challenge the mind. I just
work on chillers, a/c systems, and some building control work now.
Hmmm, only one ice machine in the last 4 years, a 40 ton monster used
to cool a gymnasium.

I doubt you'll ever make it out my way, lol. I've had the pleasure of
working on some small cascade systems made by So-Low. Had to charge the
ethane side on one, what a treat it was to get a cylinder of CP grade ethane
to rural Oklahoma!

money for a beer instead?

| Well, I've been an hour east of Oklahoma City, down a dirt

Well, another 2 1/2 hours Northeast and you'd have been here! :)

Well, I've been an hour east of Oklahoma City, down a dirt
road for about a half hour to a menite manufacturing facility. They
I thought they just sat around and prayed all day ????
had a 200K powder coat oven operation going on. They make those car
or race trailers and ship them all over the US.

And, Paul we still us the glass humidifier on the Tenney and
Lunaire Chambers. The trick is drain and flush them once a week.
Would that someone had told IBM's dev labs about that :)
After a year or so of hard use and no maintenance, they tend to have
'issues' :)
Answer question 2 is no they are not used anymore.
Oh, well - enough to make you stop and think if you haven't
seen one before, that's for sure !!

Are you talking about IBM Rochester are you Paul?

Barry
No, RTP, NC. In the PC dev labs. I used to do all their
refer and specialty stuff.

Although many moons ago the guys in Rochester, MN ( I assume
that's the one you mean ) got to know me well, back when I was working
a System 34 :)

I wanted to do some things at the direct-disk-access level and
such that the local branch SE's said were impossible. The full rack
of manuals agreed with them. I did not.

Turns out, the '34 was designed in Rochester, MN, and there
was a set of 'super secret internal only' manuals the guys there were
nice enough to send me, after some discussion. They had all the
sector maps, etc that I needed to 'do the impossible' :)
