Columbia, SOUTH CAROLINA (March 17, 2014) – The South Carolina Association of Heating and Air Conditioning Contractors (SCAHACC), held its second annual Technician Red Zone Competition in conjunction with the 2014 Annual Convention & Trade Show. SCAHACC is proud to congratulate Aaron Courier of Carolina Heating Service from Greenville SC as the Top Tech in the State with a perfect score.
Courier competed against 10 other technicians from across of the state. The technicians were skill tested and timed at four HVAC stations with accuracy being very important. The stations consisted of identifying the type of refrigerant used, high voltage troubleshooting, low voltage and thermostat trouble, measurement of airflow on air handler, gas furnace carbon monoxide and combustion testing and analysis.
“Service technicians are a critical part of the HVAC business. The red zone gave them an opportunity to show off their skills as well as an opportunity to educate students and other technicians. This was our second time of doing the competition; it was a huge success. We will be doing it again, “ said Scott Kelly, contractor for Greenville, SC, association past president and Technician Red Zone Committee Chairman.
