And by the way,

If you haven't heard.

My book Building Automation Systems A to Z  is out and the feedback has been great!

Folks are emailing me to tell me that my new book is helping them understand BAS concepts they've struggled with for years.

They are also telling me that they are able to use the processes I teach in the book to implement their projects, execute their upgrades, and to take their interactions with their customers to the next level.

If you'd like to learn the fundamentals of Building Automation Systems, then I encourage you to check out my new book, Building Automation Systems A to Z.

I've put a special package together for folks who order from my site. The package includes:

  • A physical copy of the book
  • A fully narrated audiobook for all of that windshield time we BAS folks have
  • Multiple step-by-step processes to help you implement and execute building automation systems projects
  • Videos to help you dive deeper into each chapter
  • A fully searchable electronic version of the book so you can start reading the book today
  • 3 template documents designed to help you create BAS standards, evaluate different BAS solutions, and address any and all IT concerns on your projects

So start your new year off right with my new book on building automation systems.

In encourage you to click on the link above and read just a few of the many reviews from readers of my book.

Have a great 2017!
