Enlighten me . Just found your podcast , I’ll for sure be tuning in . Thanks Craig

Markwoh ,

Excellent Videos and More

Craig has been a keystone in my learning of the HVAC field. I went from being an installer of seven years not knowing how anything worked, to being able to fully diagnose some of the more complicated issues without any assistance from more experienced technicians. If you’re new, or just looking to broaden your knowledge of this ever changing field, keep it right here with AC Service Tech.

sustainable electric and air ,

Top Quality Instruction

Thanks for putting this out Craig. It is rare to find a true craftsman in the trades. Most people are just content to make it work but to truly understand how it operates and runs at optimal performance is the right way to be.
