Often, their furnace isn’t working because they need a simple part, and I get to see their smiling face as their furnace warms up their house again
I am an HVAC technician, and I absolutely love my job. I have been an HVAC technician for nearly 30 years, and I don’t think that there has ever been a time where I wished that I wasn’t an HVAC technician. There have been good days, and there have been bad days, but I still love my job. Since I have been an HVAC technician for so long, there isn’t a lot that I haven’t done. I have crawled under houses trying to install a new furnace for a house that was going to have people living in it once the work finished. I have climbed into the attic trying to add a new vent so that one of the new rooms in the house could feel the cool air from the central air conditioner. However, I think that I love doing service calls more than anything else. Every day, the boss at the HVAC company that I work for hands me a list of people who have called the company needing help. Most of the time, they have a broken furnace or air conditioner that I need to fix for them. There may be as many as 6-10 people on that list that need the help of a qualified HVAC technician. I start off for the first house, not sure what I will find. Often, their furnace isn’t working because they need a simple part, and I get to see their smiling face as their furnace warms up their house again. Sometimes, there are multiple air conditioning systems that have a ton of issues, and it takes me a few days to get them all working. My favorite part about being an HVAC technician is helping the people.
