D’Ambola has been a salesman, a technician, and a top-notch trainer in the field of air diagnostics-balancing and troubleshooting for both residential and commercial buildings. Now, he has taken those years of experience to create not only a new air diagnostic-balancing company but also the Pocket Guide for Residential Duct Systems. The sturdy 9-page pocket guide was developed to help the field technician and installer become more proficient at identifying problems on the airside of the system.
The guide explains how to diagnose airflow, evaluate ducting, and determine the cause of high utility costs and unacceptable comfort issues. Henry Sterling, an Avon, Ohio, HVAC contractor said, “This pocket guide is perfect. I’ve never seen anything as easy to follow in the field.”
The guide provides a step-by-step question and answer format for the technician or installer to follow. Air diagnostics made easy is D’Ambola’s goal for the new troubleshooting guide.
“After conducting more than 250 residential and light-commercial air balancing /air diagnostic seminars and fielding thousands of technical support telephone calls and e-mails over the years, I have found these are some of the fundamental tests and processes that every HVAC professional needs to know,” said D’Ambola.
D’Ambola said in his Newark, N.J., style, “You had better support your salespeople, especially after investing in sales training. Now the HVAC owner must become a professional sales manager. Unfortunately, most HVAC companies are not set up to manage their salespeople. Sometimes you have to love ’em, sometimes you have to smack ’em, but you better be in contact with ’em.”
