Can someone please send me the directory that lists "Competent Techs"?
I keep getting this advice to call these people but can't seem to find
the listings. The regular listings in the Yellow Pages don't
distinguish between "medicore", "rip-off", "idiot",
"Guy-whose-buddy-wrote-the-exam-for-him", and "Competent". The ones
that I've called (and spent good money on) have usually fallen into the
former three categories, and frankly, I'd can screw it up for free all
Thanks in Advance, Dan
Firstly you need to identify what you want delivered.
By identifying your delivery as techs - it is presumed that you are talking
about "service technicians"
You should be able to expect service technicians to maintain and repair
existing equipment to a performance level equal to when the unit was
commissioned less some degradation allowance due to aging or operator
You should not expect a service technician to be able to design or advise
pertaining to thermal comfort unless that technician has been accredited by
an accreditation body for the specific services provided and have
professional risk insurance cover open to customers to make valid claims to
offset any losses incurred by the customer for failures to the design or
acting upon inappropriate advice.
So if you want to engage a service technician to design or advise on a
thermal comfort system unless the produce a satisfactory certificate of
currency for Professional Indemnity - You the customer are the one being
I think the main problem is your using the the phone book
when you take your to be maintained you dont look at a phone book ad
you look at their facility
or go to a dealer that has ASE techs I hope you do assuming you do why
use a phone book contact the manufacture
of your equipment
large companies are not the best they are high volume the have a large
pool of new techs that have little experiance
only two or three good techs if their lucky
when you call ask for a nate certified or rses certified technician
when they arive ask to see there wallet card
alot of homeowners think an EPA certified tech means they know how to
work on equipment but all
a EPA cert is for is to hanndle refrigerant nothing with the service
stop being mad at the industry and put the blame on your self you order
HVAC service like you order pizza
you get a bad pizza your out $10 you get a bad tech your out alot more
then the cost of the service call your utility bill goes up and your
life goes down. stop being lazzy and do some work to find a good
company to service your system
Call some commercial companies the techs are more experianced and ask
for NATE RSES OR ARI CERT also use some comman sence
if the guy they send is under 28-30 years old you know they do not have
experiance look at it like going to the DR
when a DR gets out of med school you would not let him work on you it
takes 10 yrs before he has hands on experiance
real HVAC/R techs are as smart as DRs are theY know thermodynamics
electricity plumbing it takes along time to develope these
skills I know many technicians that make well over $100,000 year but
every company has only one or two of them and he runs around fixing
all the screw-ups that is why he makes $35-$45 hr and gets 80 hrs in a
week bigger is not better when you select a company

Ahhhh, no Dildo.....
Competent techs asking other competent techs questions, will get a decent
Your problem is that you know very little, but you like the spotlight, so
you try to answer questions that are beyond your level of knowledge,
thereby exposing your lack of expertise.
It's REAL simple, Dildo.
Don't try to answer a question if you don't know the answer.
Instead, sit back, read, and learn.
Otherwise, be prepared to get your ass flamed once again.
AMEN. There are a few posters who just don't get it: They need to keep
their traps shut and LEARN, instead of spouting advice to which they do not
Dildo has been corrected many times and REFUSES TO LEARN, and that is his
major problem (besides that no one can understand what he posts).
Even more astounding: The worst offenders profess to have worked several
years in the business, but yet they don't seem to have a clue regarding even
Dream on boys it is really shame that such knowledge
is wasted here.
Please be advised that you will not stop me from posting
so you do what you need to do and I will do the same,
However in my opinion there are bunch of you
that don't fit to wipe my bottom end!
HAVE NICE DAY "MORONS"
