Dan Holohan began his career working with his father at a NY-based manufacturers representative. Big Ed Holohan encouraged him to join the heating industry saying, â€œKid, this is the best business to be in because people are always going to need heat, especially in the winter.â€ Dan couldnâ€™t help but agree and so he got to work.
While Dan worked heâ€™d listen to the old-timers who stopped by and they became teachers of a lost art. Theyâ€™d tell stories about old heating systems theyâ€™d come across. Theyâ€™d also pepper in tips and tricks theyâ€™d learned on the job. Dan wanted to learn even more, so he went to the library and poured over books about how heating systems were invented and how theyâ€™d evolved over time. Those long-gone authors, whom Dan fondly refers to as the Dead Men, told him the story of the industry.
Dan worked at that company for 19 years and spent a lot of time in the field working with contractors. He would figure out what mysterious older systems were and research how to make them work better. Dan knew that while these older heating systems werenâ€™t going away anytime soon, the stories behind them were in danger of slipping away. So he preserved this knowledge and shared it through his seminars, his books, magazine articles, and HeatingHelp.com.
