Craig HVAC Expert


I have been in the HVAC field for the past 18 years. I can help with most HVAC questions. I work on commerical buildings for the most part, and have yet to find anything I could not troubleshoot and repair, when repairable. I work on small 1 ton units to a 2500 ton chiller. Troubleshoot air flow, elect, and control problems. I attend regular classes to keep up with the latest and greatest.

Experience in the area

I work on commerical sites, hospitals, gov't buildings. I can troubleshoot just about anything in the HVAC business.


5 years trade school, VFD training classes, Liebert factory training, some York and Trane factory training.

What do you like about this subject?

Always a new challange, and a different problem to solve.
