My brother has been a heating and air conditioning specialist for the last 20 years, and I actually wanted to follow in his shadow.
I myself have always had some desire to get into the heating and air conditioning industry myself, and when I graduated from high school, instead of going to college, I ended up going straight to heating and air conditioning school to become a certified heating and cooling specialist just like my brother! Ever since I was young, the whole idea of repairing and installing central heating and air conditioning equipment, as well as other things related to HVAC products had been my major interest and passion.
I would always watch my brother when he would fix our heating and air conditioning system, and I would also ask him lots of questions about his job. My brother had taught me quite a bit while I was growing up with heating and air conditioning systems. He even let me help him a few times when our own heating and air conditioning system would break down. That in itself was a major education in heating and cooling repair. But, back to what I was saying….my education in heating and cooling only took 5 months total. I took a test at the school, I passed, and then I got my very own heating and air conditioning certification! It was one of the happiest days of my life. Today, I work at the same company as my brother does. Although, my brother is getting ready to retire soon, I will continue on and follow in his footsteps for the next twenty years!
