Frustration is always going to set in

Since they know all of my prices and customers, they try to steal business from my HVAC company

Since I have run my own HVAC company for the last few decades, I have learned quite a few things about the HVAC industry that most people don’t know. I get kids who have just graduated out of an HVAC program that thought they knew everything about the HVAC equipment they were working with. They had been taught all of the theory and book knowledge, but they were missing all of the practical experience that repairing and installing furnaces and air conditioners for a few decades gives you. Though the HVAC field has changed in some ways and has improved, HVAC equipment isn’t much different than it was when I first got a job at another HVAC company. One of the most frustrating parts about working in the HVAC field is that people abuse my knowledge. When I hire somebody for my HVAC company, I immediately begin teaching them and training them to work on HVAC equipment. I show them all of the tips and tricks that I have learned after all of these years, and they become decent as HVAC technicians. Then, one day, they will just quit their jobs and start their own HVAC companies in the same city, becoming my competitors. Since they know all of my prices and customers, they try to steal business from my HVAC company. I just don’t understand how people can be like that. I spent hours and a lot of money showing them everything that I knew about HVAC equipment, just for them to leave. They slander and double-cross me! Whatever happened to people who are willing to work for an employer faithfully until they earned a nice position in my company?

Okay, so it's not my business

HVAC work is some of the neatest work that I have ever done.

I have learned a lot of cool things about HVAC equipment, and there have been times when I was very glad that I finished my HVAC apprenticeship.

When I first got into HVAC work, I had no idea what I was getting into. My experience had been fast food jobs and factory jobs, and I didn’t think it would be that hard to work for an HVAC company. I was wrong. Now, I am at the point where I am planning to start my own side hustle writing stories for HVAC companies. I have a huge edge on other writers because the last few decades of my life have been used on HVAC units and installing new air conditioners and furnaces. However, I am still working for the HVAC company as I begin the business. Starting a new company is difficult, especially if you are doing online freelance writing as I plan on doing. But my HVAC company keeps me busy enough to save up money for this venture. My boss has been very pleased with my work for his company, and he has pledged that he will be one of my best customers when I started my writing company for the HVAC industry. He has worked with me as I crawled through attics and underneath a house to install vents and gas lines, and he knows that I am very knowledgable about HVAC equipment. He said I would do fine as long as I put as much work and time into my articles as I did repairing HVAC units for my customers!

My job as a recruiter for the HVAC school in our area

I spent most of my working like working as an HVAC technician for a large union in my state. I have spent countless hours working on broken furnaces and malfunctioning air conditioners, striving to keep the customers happy and comfortable. I can’t tell you how many countless hours that I have spent installing brand new HVAC equipment in houses that were being built, knowing that this house would soon be a finished product with an HVAC unit that would last them a long time without any trouble or need to call my HVAC company. However, in recent years, the HVAC company that I work for sends me to high schools to recruit prospective students into our HVAC program to train more workers for the future. While I have found that not as many younger students are interested in learning how to repair and install HVAC equipment, I have found quite a few. Usually, we look for students who spend a lot of time in shop classes and hands-on courses, knowing that they will be naturals when it comes to HVAC units! Some of the hardest times that I ever had in this job is when students are super excited about joining the HVAC school before they eventually back out. I invest hours teaching them and answering all their questions, just before they decide to go to college instead of an HVAC school. It breaks my heart to think of all that student debt! If they stayed with the HVAC company, they would get paid to learn instead of paying for it all with debt! And they would learn a valuable skill that will not likely go away!

We need more kids in the HVAC program after they graduate

Air conditioners help people to stay comfortable in the Summer, and they can prevent heat stroke and other dangerous conditions

Our world is losing people in the trade business like wildfire. Kids today are being taught how to do complicated math problems, perform scientific experiments, and quote random facts from history, but they aren’t being taught how to do simple things like installing a furnace or an air conditioner. Kids are also being told that the only way to be successful in the business world is to borrow a ton of money in order to pay for a degree that might have a job open for you. However, not many kids are interested in becoming an HVAC technician after they graduate. Did you know that HVAC workers get paid to learn their trade, and they make competitive wages compared to many other entry-level jobs. Rather than spending all their time studying theory and taking credits that they don’t need, they could be learning the components of a furnace and air conditioner, and figuring out how to troubleshoot basic problems with HVAC equipment. Though certain degrees become useless after a time, the world will always have HVAC equipment. Since there is not a huge population that understand how to repair or install HVAC equipment like furnaces or air conditioners, your child will have job security for the rest of your life. Air conditioners help people to stay comfortable in the Summer, and they can prevent heat stroke and other dangerous conditions. Furnaces prevent frozen pipes and warped houses, and they can help people to stay healthy and warm. The next time your kid doesn’t have a plan for the future, you should recommend HVAC!

Cooling specialist

HVAC technician got in accident

Sometimes I sincerely wonder if I’m cursed, or if it’s merely coincidental that so many things go wrong around me.

For instance, when I walk into commercial retail stores and their entire electrical systems crash.

Or when I help a friend to purchase a new vehicle, which turns out to have more faulty systems and repeat repairs than it’s actually worth. As far fetched as I know it sounds, it feels like bad luck surrounds me and I can pass it along to others. This is exactly how I felt last month when I went to visit my good friends back home. We were staying at one of their houses, when suddenly the air felt extremely cold. He got up and checked the thermostat, finding that the temperature settings were normal for his place. Puzzled, we went to check out the furnace and found that it had basically exploded. He hadn’t been experiencing any trouble with it whatsoever, so it was very confusing to find that the heater had spontaneously stopped working. I immediately felt guilty, knowing that my misfortune had caused his HVAC failure. We worked together to find a local HVAC company with excellent reviews, and he called in the work order. After hours of waiting, however, the furnace technician had still not arrived. That’s when we called back again and found out that the heating specialist had been in an accident on the way over to see the failed furnace. Luckily he was going to be okay, but I felt awful that my bad luck struck again.

The search for a new HVAC system

When he showed me the mini split HVAC system, I was pleasantly surprised

My husband is one of the most intelligent people I know. He actually infuriates me at times, because he always uses an intelligent approach to all situations. He seldom just wings things, but he needs to know the whys and wherefores. When he decided to not go to the internet for information, but to just dig in and see where it took him, I was shocked. He was looking into a new HVAC system for our home. I was expecting him to take weeks, if not months, to suss out all of the information on every HVAC system. He spent a couple of days on the computer and he came upstairs all excited. He told me he had found the perfect HVAC system for our home. I kind of cringed, hoping he was joking, but fearing that he was not. The last time he made a quick decision, cost us thousands of dollars and we were still trying to find someone to take the old church bell out of our garage. I don’t know if he didn’t realize how big it was, or he didn’t care. He thought it would be cool to have the bell from the old church in town. It has been three years, and we are going to donate it to the church, just to get rid of it. When he showed me the mini split HVAC system, I was pleasantly surprised. He said that he had read about them about a year ago, and he knew that if they were as good as he remembered, it would be everything we needed in a HVAC system. I was wrong about how much time he would spend on the HVAC. It was a year and not two months.

To replace my ancient furnace I need to find a trustworthy HVAC contractor

I have decided to replace the old furnace in my home.

  • The heating system is nearly twenty years old, and no longer meeting demand.

On especially cold winter days, the furnace runs non stop, and yet the house is chilly. When the furnace starts up, it makes a tremendous amount of noise and the warm air smells musty. My energy bills have steadily increased while the level of comfort has rapidly decreased. I’m convinced that the furnace is degrading indoor air quality, creating a health risk, and I’m worried it’s a safety risk. I don’t want to be caught, in the middle of the winter, without a working heating system. Rather than scramble to replace the heater when the outside temperature is well below zero, I’m planning to schedule the project over the summer. I’ve been saving my money and doing research into the current models of heating systems. There have been a lot of advancements in design and technology over the last twenty years. Today’s furnaces feature zone control, wifi connectivity, variable speed capability, and up to 98% AFUE. They offer superior safety features and filtration, and operate quietly. As I’ve looked into the different manufacturers and options, I’ve learned that the sizing and installation of the furnace is more important than the brand. I need to find a trustworthy and knowledgeable HVAC contractor to handle the project. If the HVAC contractor doesn’t take accurate calculations and determine the home’s heating load, I could end up with a furnace that’s either too large or too small. Since I want to make sure I’m totally satisfied with the end result, I’ve now started reading the reviews of all the local HVAC companies.

Upgrading to zone control in big, old house improves comfort and saves money

My house is very old, extremely big, and a challenge to heat and cool.

There are tons of small rooms, high ceilings and big windows. When my husband and I first moved in, the cost of temperature control nearly drained our budget. The house is equipped with a modern, energy efficient forced air furnace and central cooling system. However, there was only a single thermostat located in the dining room. The heating and cooling system then worked continuously to main the entire house at the thermostat settings. Most of the rooms in the house go unused. We were paying to keep them at the ideal temperature. Some of the room tend to be a bit chilly while others are always overheated. There was no way to target these specific rooms. We finally hired a local HVAC contractor to upgrade the system to zone control. The job was not all that expensive, caused no mess or damage, and was completed in a single day. The HVAC contractor installed independent thermostats in each room and dampers into the duct system. My husband and I can now direct the heated/cooled air to individual rooms. We can customize temperature to personal preferences and requirements. In the first month, we noticed a thirty percent savings on our heating bill. We recovered the initial investment within three years, and greatly improved the comfort of the home. Plus, the zone control has lessened the workload of the furnace and air conditioner. With less wear and tear, the heating and cooling system should last longer and succumb to fewer repairs.
