Trades Talk Podcast, Episode 2 — Contractors' Roundtable
For over a year now, we've heard these rumblings about this "new normal." But what exactly does this mean to HVAC/R contractors? Although it'd be easiest to say that all contractors have gone through the same experiences in this pandemic, life as a contractor just isn't that simple.
We spoke with two commercial contractors as part of this Contractors' Roundtable — Tim Padfield of Pad-Car Mechanical and Scott Munro of Opus Mechanical. The former from Alberta; the latter from Ontario. Listen as both talk about their experiences through the pandemic and their best practice suggestions to their fellow contractors. As Scott eloquently puts it, "culture cannot be created remotely."
In the second half of the episode, our hosts chat with Paul Tomlin of AO Smith about thermal expansion. As the temperature of a hot water heater rises, this is when thermal expansion occurs. Listen to Paul discuss ways to combat this issue, including the well-known expansion tank. Did you know that they need to be charged? Our expert will tell you how.
