As his family, we know how much Mike loved sharing his knowledge and expertise with the broader community. This blog will remain available for reference to previous postings. Thank you for your support and for reading this blog over the years.

About yorkcentraltechtalk

I have been in the HVAC industry most of my life. I worked 25 years for contractors on anything from residential to large commercial boilers and power burners. For the past 23+ years I had been employed by York International UPG Division ( a division of Johnson Controls) as a Technical support/Service Manager but I am now retired. One of my goals has always been to "educate" dealers and contractors. The reason for starting this blog was to share some knowledge, thoughts, ideas, etc with anyone who takes the time to read it. The contents of this blog are my own opinions, thoughts, experiences and should not be construed as those of Johnson Controls York UPG in any way. I hope you find this a help. I always welcome comments and suggestions for postings and will do my best to address any thoughts, questions, or topics you may want to hear about. Thanks for taking the time to read my postings! Mike Bishop

    My heart is saddened in learning of the passing of Mike. I work as a Tech Support field adviser for a distributor of York brand equipment. The wealth of knowledge he has given on this blog has been awesome and you could tell he loved to pass this on to others to help them become better Technicians. I am happy that you are leaving the blog available as I reference this blog in my training classes and encourage others to visit and learn. Thank you Mike for your help and support, you will be missed.
