The cooling specialist convention happens every two years.
This convention is meant to update professionals in the HVAC industry on new HVAC technology and systems.
For the longest time, my boss had always attended this convention but this year I was surprised that he humbly requested that I represent him. I was excited because it was a break from my town. I was excited to walk around the new town and get acquainted with their food, considering I am a foodie. I had heard from the grapevine that they would introduce the new air conditioning, the mini-split air conditioner. The speaker would take us through how to operate the new system as well as the differences from the other units that have been in the market for years, like the heat pump. The first day was filled with activities of getting to know each other and the HVAC businesses we run or are from. We also got a chance to see some of the thermostats and order some for the company. The cooling expert’s convention was also a mini expo where dealers traded their products and services. I got paired with a group of experienced professionals which left me feeling like a new contractor all over again. However, I had so much fun and learned so much about topics like duct sealing and maintaining the cleanliness of the HVAC ducts at all times. The indoor air quality in the conference hall, the rooms, and the dining area were outstanding and so were the temperatures. I later found out they had a zone control system and regularly did the air conditioner tune-up. The digital temperature control had my interest. I even got to take a dozen back to the office for resale. I had a grand time at the convention.
