Why does it take that long?
HVAC is a compulsory Trade under O.C.O.T. (the Ontario College of Trades), while gas fitting is regulated by T.S.S.A. (the Technical Standard and Safety Association). It is a certified trade as the risks of doing something incorrect may have disastrous consequences to your home, to you and your family.
Certification is based on study, practice and real world experience under the supervision of experienced journeypersons who pass the aspects of the trade onto their apprentices.
Combustion analysis training, electronics training, flame safeguard trouble shooting , study of ventilation applications, CO2- Carbon Dioxide training, Gas Technician certification, along with a working knowledge of all the varied manufacturers products are just some of the requirements to successfully study portion of our members certification.
This isn’t a diploma you should get off some internet website.
Does Training Stop after the Apprenticeship is over?
No, training does not stop there, our journeypersons continually upgrade and advance their skills as new technology, systems and legislation change the way we do our work. We invest over 2.5 Million dollars a year in training so when our representative arrives at your door they are prepared to solve your problem efficiently, cost effectively and safely.
That is the YourHVACPro.ca focus, keeping you and your family warm in the winter and cool in the summer, and more importantly safe.
What can I do to make sure the work being done on my furnace is done right?
Part of the issue with HVAC, the Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning Industry is that there are too many organizations looking to make a quick buck selling you a furnace, boiler or AC unit and not focused enough on doing it right the first time or servicing it after the fact. This is a practice that is forcing you to replace your HVAC equipment far earlier than needed and in many cases causing it to fail prematurely.
Your best bet is to call us, but failing that make sure your technician has a valid OCOT licence and TSSA Gas Certification and is properly insured. These tickets are what a worker must have in the Province of Ontario to legally work on residential HVAC systems.
If they can’t produce those documents do not let them work on your system.
