HTS Texas Expands HTS University: Free HVAC Equipment Training Initiative.


HTS Texas, the Texas partner of the largest independent commercial HVAC manufacturers' representative in North America, announced that the company is expanding its training program, HTS University, with the addition of a new regional training instructor and diversified course offering. HTS University will provide free training sessions on a wide range of HVAC equipment to industry professionals and end users throughout Texas.

As the regional training instructor for HTS Texas, James Adkinson will take on the role of providing relevant training with hands-on demonstrations to building owners, maintenance teams, contractors, and end users. Adkinson possesses strong industry expertise, with more than 23 years of experience working at Daikin Applied. His extensive knowledge of air handlers, packaged rooftop systems, air cooled and screw chillers, water-cooled chillers and magnetic bearing centrifugal chillers will allow him to provide necessary training and information to ensure attendees can confidently operate their systems.

“I’m excited to have the opportunity to pass on my HVAC knowledge to others in the industry,” Adkinson said. “Everyone who works with these systems should have the ability to understand and operate them independently, and resolve issues without the need for outsourced help. I hope I can deliver that power to the individuals I train.”

HTS University classes can include customized on-site instruction for each facility’s system, or be taught in a classroom setting at one of HTS Texas’s seven offices across Austin, Houston, Dallas, Fort Worth, and San Antonio. Attendees will gain first-hand experience and receive the latest product knowledge on state-of-the-art HVAC equipment, empowering building owners and maintenance teams to feel comfortable managing their system’s operations.

“James Adkinson’s depth of knowledge will be a great asset to our clients, and the HTS University training initiative will deliver vital resources and education that will benefit our industry in the short and long term,” said Todd McCullough, principal at HTS Texas. “Providing this solution at no cost for industry professionals ultimately saves facilities money on maintenance costs, and enhances the user experience for everyone involved.”

As a full-service HVAC solutions provider, HTS Texas is committed to delivering real success to all parties who interface with a project’s HVAC equipment, including end users. HTS University allows the company to offer support for the systems provided by HTS Texas, and contribute to growth of collective industry knowledge. HTS Texas will continue to offer HVAC fundamentals courses for a fee, and is consistently working to expand its offering of free HTS University courses to cover the full range of the company’s HVAC expertise. This expertise, combined with a full suite of specialized departments focused on equipment, building automation systems, airside products, parts, and service, allows HTS Texas to provide support for HVAC systems through the entire product life cycle.
