RLS is proud to have been chosen as the press fittings used in the HVAC National Championship competition. The ServiceTitan HVAC National Championship – which will air on CBS Sports Network on December 15th at 8PM EST – puts HVAC technicians and apprentices through a series of challenges, including making copper tube connections using RLS press fittings.
Just as it is done in the field, competitors are required to properly prep the tube, mark the correct insertion depth and complete the press connection using an RLS-compatible tool and jaws. All challenges are judged and scored by a team of experienced HVAC professionals.
The HVAC championship competition features 15 apprentices and 15 professionals going head-to-head in a unique HVAC skill challenge for the title of National Champion and a share of over $100,000 in prizes – including $40,000 to the overall winner.
RLS is proud to be a part of this special event that honors all the members of the HVAC trade, and draws attention to the wide range of skills required to excel in the field. In addition, by including the pressing process in the competition, the championship confirms for the industry what RLS users already know: that the correct use of RLS fittings and tools are necessary skills in 2023.
