December 8, 2022 – Instructor Bios – Geothermal Service and Installation Training at CCEDC
Mike Hammond – Creative Energy
Mike Hammond started in the HVAC early in life at 16 years old. He started working for a company in their sheet metal shop and delivering materials to jobsites and slowly became more involved in installation and service. Later, Mike went on to own his own business for years – installing equipment and started to specialize in geothermal installations and service in the early 1990’s. Then in 2009 he made a decision to join ClimateMaster to be a trainer, traveling the country to train distributors and dealers on service and installation of geothermal equipment. In 2022 I left ClimateMaster and joined Creative Energy.
