Unico's Training Department features exceptionally talented and experienced instructors:
Mike Lindsay is the Western Region Trainer for Unico Inc. Mike manages the Las Vegas training facility and is the instructor for all Certified Training which takes place there. In addition, Mike makes trouble shooting calls, as scheduled by Unico.
Mike's parents owned a heating business so he essentially grew up in the industry. For his parents, he measured and roughed in homes, made and installed the duct system, then performed the check test and startup. Since then Mike has had extensive experience in the industry working for Washington University, GE, and several large conventional HVAC companies. His background includes lab testing, commercial sales, technical rep and various training positions.
In early 2005, Mike brought his experience, knowledge and teaching skills to Unico. Since then both the company and hundreds of Dealers have benefited from Mike's insight and knowledge and communications skill.
Mike's experience translates very well in the classroom which prompts lively discussions about numerous topics and applications relating to the Unico System including efficiency, capacity and refrigerant piping concerns with multiple capacity machines.
