Let’s face it. It doesn’t get super cold in Central Florida regularly but when it does EVERYONE FREAKS.

In this episode we talk about:

  • Heat Pump Defrost Mode
  • Gas Pool Heater
  • Heat Pump Pool Heaters
  • The thermodynamic principles of heat pump heating
  • Defining BTUs
  • LP vs. NG

And much more…

This podcast is in an unedited “meeting format” and is not usually the type of thing you will get on HVAC school, but I still think it may benefit junior techs and office staff.
