I am currently a bi-vocational HVAC technician, but I hope to transition out of HVAC work completely before next year.
I don’t want you to think that I didn’t enjoy being an HVAC technician.
I really enjoyed working on HVAC systems all of the time. However, during my time working as an HVAC technician, I discovered what my true passion was. I love building websites. I never realized that it would be something that I could get really good at. I was the youngest guy working for the HVAC company, and they were trying to get better at marketing. A lot of the other HVAC companies had nice websites and advertising, and our boss knew that we needed to update our website to compete with the other HVAC companies. Most of the other HVAC technicians were pretty old and unfamiliar with computers, so I was chosen to work on the HVAC website. I was paid by the HVAC company to do this, and I really enjoyed it. The website for the HVAC company ended up looking very nice, but I also discovered that I had a passion for creating websites. I began taking online classes for web design and fell in love. Right now, I have begun a web design business, and I am waiting for the company to grow to the point that I can do it full-time. Until then, I am still working as an HVAC technician to pay my bills. I honestly think that I should be able to quit HVAC work by the end of the year, but only time will tell.
