Part of the pathway to high skill and knowledge levels is the desire to help others that follow in your footsteps. We have all heard the adage that a picture is worth 1000 words, so now we are challenging you to help us fill that gap.
We need self-shot high-resolution color photos with good lighting in the following categories. Images should be a combination of detailed (closeup) and from a distance to give us an in-context view.
1. HVAC: Condenser, evaporator, metering device, motors, VFD, EEV and more.
2. HVAC: Installation related images such as tight and clean or horrible in appearance.
3. Refrigeration: Walk-in, reach-in, unitary systems, commercial appliances.
4. Electrical: BAS/DDC controls, electrical control panels, disasters, failures, and disaster-in-waiting.
5. HVACR: General installations
We need self-shot videos that tell a story. There is no reason to edit the videos as our editors will do that for us. Listed are a few examples of the types and situations that we need.
1. Videos need to tell a story such as using a voltmeter to ohm out a compressor.
2. Connect your manifold gauges and walk us through a charging procedure.
3. Demonstrate measuring External Static Pressure on an HVAC system.
4. Find and repair a refrigerant leak.
5. The examples are boundless. Tell us a story and send it in!
