HVAC Training

At this time, I am Recommending the use of the following Equipment / Instruments, for Indoor Air Quality Investigations / Diagnostics; Bacharach, Inc.

Regardless of the “Brand Name” of the Equipment that you choose to use, I urge you to Purchase YOUR OWN CALIBRATION EQUIPMENT, … LEARN HOW to CALIBRATE your Instruments, … and VERIFY the Calibration of your Equipment AT LEAST, ONCE A MONTH.

I have had many inquiries concerning a “GOOD” “RED TAG” for use when Turning off Equipment until it is Properly Serviced, and / or Replaced. I recommend that you contact: Inland Northwest HVAC Assoc. at: 1-800-786-3148.

If PROPERLY Completed, this is a Simple, Easy to Understand, “Liability” SAFE form of “Insurance”, for you and your Company.

Jim Mackie, is a Dedicated “Life-Safety” Professional. It was a “Review” of one of Jim’s C O Detector / Alarm “Test Programs” that first brought to my attention an OBVIOUS SENSOR PROBLEM with the “NEW” Models of the Kidde-Nighthawk C O Alarms that had just hit the Marketplace in October, 1998. After the “Red Flags” were raised by this first review, Jim did additional Concentrated Testing on these New Models, which Revealed a 100% Failure Rate. We then had Additional “Testing done on by Test Labs in B.C.,Canada, and Calif., … before taking our Data to the U. S. Consumer Product Safety Commission to PUSH for the Immediate Recall of these Seriously Defective C O Alarms.


Jim’s Dedication to Excellence Undoubtedly SAVED THOUSANDS of LIVES ! ! !
