Author Biography

Larry Jeffus is highly respected in both education and the refrigeration and air conditioning field, with more than 30 years of experience. His many years of dedicated service to his students and technical education were influential in leading Texas Governor Rick Perry to appoint Larry to the Texas Workforce Investment Council. Larry's aim in writing this book is to bring together, in a logical order, the data necessary to be successful in the HVAC/R industry. In doing this, he has been guided by his experience as a NATE Certified HVAC/R technician working in the field, as a teacher in the classroom, as a Texas licensed HVAC/R contractor, and as a consultant in the refrigeration and air conditioning field. He provides an excellent blend of theory with job-qualifying skill development and uses color photographs and line drawings that make the principles and service information easy to understand.
