Hi, my name is Paul Smith. Thanks for visiting my site and checking our my admittedly boring about page!

I’m a retired HVAC technician from Dayton, Ohio and although I don’t do the work of an HVAC engineer any more, I love the profession – which is why I made this site.

I’m a fully qualified ACCA HVAC instructor and started HVAC Basics to share my knowledge and love of all things heating, ventilation, AC and refrigeration. Yes, my wife is a lucky lady!

Most of the informational content on this website is written by me, but i do work with a number of fellow HVAC engineers to write the product reviews because although I am retired, my time is still very limited.

I hope you enjoy the content on the site and it helps you in some way on your journey to becoming an HVAC technician.

If there is anything I can do to help you, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
