About the Instructors

Russell Prach has grown up in the HVAC-R industry. Shadowing his father, Russell has acquired Ellis’ expertise on heat exchanger services, and is eager to pass it along. Russell’s passion and enthusiasm for this trade is contagious; you will see his enthusiasm transpire in his teaching methods as he captures the attention of each and every student or attendee.

Christopher Prach grew up in this industry so heat exchanger training and servicing are both very familiar to him. The knowledge he brings from his extensive field experience, accompanied by the expertise passed down from his father, makes him a great addition to the instructing team. When he is not on tour, aside from being a father, he oversees the field operations in our service company.
