Meet The Team

These men and women do the long hours of testing and research to bring you the recommendations and information on our site


Welcome to Air Conditioner Lab!

Thank you for visiting my site. A little bit about me, my name is Josh and I am an HVAC and tech enthusiast. I wanted to create an online resource where I to share what I have learned and help homeowners with their HVAC needs.

I started this website in 2014 and have been improving it ever since. Readers of this site have grown in recent years, and I have added a team to help me bring you quality content that covers all aspects of home heating, cooling and air quality. Read on to find out about each of the valuable members behind this website.

Our Values

When I started this site my aim was to document my findings on home air conditioners as I knew they were a confusing topic for most people. I have always aimed to do this in an honest and open way. Through sharing my experiences and experimentation, I have determined what I believe to be the best solutions for most people.

As I began expanding this website into heating, air purifiers, and dehumidifiers, I also added some trustworthy team members to help me improve the articles I publish. These guys and girls share the same standards and we are constantly working together to bring you the best recommendations.

The aim of this website is not to make money from readers. We give our opinions and perspectives on products and always provide the good and bad from our testing, researching and experience. If this leads you to buy a product through our links, and we receive a small commission, then be rest assured that any earnings will go back to producing more articles and higher quality content. You can learn more about this here on our disclosure page.
