Scared of Gas Appliances


Times up.

Anybody can look it up or google it. You should know that stuff in your head. Even 13 year old geeky nerds don't speak like an adult.

Do you even know what hvac stands for? If you're really interested then this is a good site to stay and learn on. Many excellent hvac technicians helping a lot of people in the hvac forum up above. You can linger around there and read the threads, learn something. Even ask, I'm sure everyone will be willing to help you.

You obviously did not read my last post.

I'm not saying I know everything about HVAC
Please don't quiz me. I'm (of course) still learning. I however, do know that CFM is air flow and TR is one of the terminals on the gas valve. I don't know the others but that's why I'm still learning, clearly said I do NOT know everything, and I'm trying to be this tech's "apprentice."

To charge a system, you would evacuate (pull a vacuum?) on the system, put nitrogen in the system, check for leaks, then evacuate the system. Then you would put your refrigerant into the system. That's on R-22 systems.

I do know that R-410A has no ozone depleting properties. However, 410A has to be ran at dangerously high pressures.

HVAC stands for Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning.

HVAC/R (or HVACR) stands for Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning, and Refrigeration.

Just a guess.
HLC equals High Load Calculation?

Like I said in my above post (sorry for the double post), I don't know everything there is to know. I am clearly F-A-R away from being an expert. But I know the basics.

If you want to help me learn, why don't you explain those abbreviations?

Scared of Gas Appliances


I have been scared of gas appliances for ever since I can remember. (I'm only a 13 year old kid.) I'm pretty much the expert at HVAC equipment in my school. Yes, I'm 13, and I know a lot about HVAC because I was interested in it ever since I was like 5 years old.


Yes you did say you were the expert. You came here looking for psychological counselling

Okay.

In my student body I'm the one who knows the most about HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning) equipment.

Happy now?

I can't say anything without the user creeper saying something.

Yes, I might become the apprentice of the CERTIFIED TECH that I went to yesterday. And now, I'm probably just going to direct all my questions to him.

This place is for legitmate DIY inquiries and so far you have not directed any questions to any pros. Which any of whom would likely be delighted to answer with the most professional guidance.

From the start, if you had of directed any questions to the pros then this doubt would not have been raised.

That sentence alone is way too advanced. Not even the forty yr olds around here refer to each other as the "user"

Legally you can not work in this field, you can't flip burgers at McDonald's for that matter, for a few years. He can not and would be a complete idiot to take any child so young out to work.

If you ask me something then I'll explain it. I'm not the pupil here.

I guess you're right. But this doesn't mean I can't learn stuff from him or "watch and learn."
