Working as a certified HVAC specialist can be simple and it can be a headache at times.
- Although I like what I do, and would not be anything else in the world other than a certified HVAC specialist, there are afternoons enjoy last Tuesday that I wish I was not a certified HVAC specialist! My coworker and I had what should have been a simple heating and cooling system replacement job to do.
If things had gone right, we would have been in and out of that apartment within no more than an hour! But, the HVAC company I work for happened to have loaded the wrong central HVAC system on to the truck. We didn’t think it until we decided to go through the hassle of unloading this monster. When we were about to start the HVAC job on the replacement is when my partner noticed it. We had to explain what happened to the tenant, and then we had to call the HVAC company to tell them their own error. They ended up taking an hour to even get the HVAC component put on to another truck and delivered to the location we were at. We were all very miserable at this point. The tenant of the apartment was nice and understood that mistakes happen. We finally got the HVAC component installed and were outta there within an hour after we got the correct heating and cooling system. It was quite a rough afternoon!
