Listen to what our customers have to say ....

I just received the Refrigeration Basics III  Professional Version from you guys and I just wanted to say thanks for all of the great work that you did on this. I work in engineering at a Rehab Institute and I can see this is going to help a lot in my understanding of everything from ice makers to walk-in refrigerators to heat pumps. Everything from the theory to the troubleshooting parts are terrific!

I was showing the roof top unit troubleshooting to a friend, who is a licensed HVAC service tech, and it had him stumped for a while. He said he is going to order a copy for himself!

To those in the know:

I am a student in the 1.5 year HVAC Associates Degree Program.

While browsing the web for more "easier to understand" information on refrigeration and heating, I stumbled upon the Refrigeration Basics III Interactive Training CD at I immediately purchased the CD and it has been well worth the investment!

The photo links, easy to understand dialogue and clever animation make the course material fun to learn. One of the drawbacks to typical HVAC-R textbooks is that they are frequently too complicated in their explanations and terminology.

The Refrigeration Basics III CD is exceptional in its ability to explain complicated systems, definitions, and the processes that go along with refrigeration. The troubleshooting guides and schematics really help the student to test his or her knowledge with real world simulations.

Do yourself a favor and fork out the $$$ to get this product. It will be an asset and handy reference too for you in the future!
