Rich Schuster, author of “No Ducks in the Attic, and other Basics of HVAC Installation” and other industry books, announces the formation of No Ducks Seminars. Based on the namesake book, the author will conduct live seminars in cities throughout the East Coast focusing on commonly overlooked topics for HVAC installers and service technicians.
As owners of service companies struggle to attract and maintain qualified field technicians, Schuster intends to supply the information required to fill in the gaps commonly ignored by trainers. “Everyone teaches refrigeration theory and how to diagnose an electrical short, but you don’t see trainers teaching things like basic equipment and duct sizing, the causes of common call backs, or why companies need to charge as much as they do.” By covering topics like these and more, the author claims to help create more confident, efficient, and profitable employees.
No Ducks Seminars begins in Newburgh, NY on September 6-7, Danbury, CT on October 4-5, and Paramus, NJ on November 29-30, with additional dates and locations to be added regularly. For more information, visit www.noducksseminars.com.
The AHR Expo (International Air-Conditioning, Heating, Refrigerating Exposition) is the world’s largest HVACR event, consisting of more than 2,100 exhibitors and attracting 60,000+ attendees each year. Since 1930, the Show has provided a unique forum where the entire HVACR industry, including OEMs; engineers; contractors; manufacturers; distributors; commercial, industrial and institutional facility operators; and educators comes together to discover the latest products, learn about new technologies and develop mutually beneficial business relationships. The next Show, co-sponsored by ASHRAE and AHRI, will be held Jan. 14-16, 2019 at the Georgia World Congress Center, Atlanta, and is held concurrently with ASHRAE’s Winter Conference.
