I will never forget when I first decided that I wanted to work in the HVAC industry. I was participating in a trade school program my Senior Year of High School. I wasn’t sure if I wanted to do the whole college thing and it was a way to get out of sitting in a classroom all day. A group of business owners came to our class and told us about these internships that they were offering. One of them was with a large HVAC company in town and it sounded pretty cool. I figured that I had nothing to lose and everything to gain. About halfway through the year, I thought I had seen it all when it came to servicing HVAC systems. The biggest problems were caused because folks did not take care of their systems properly. They didn’t change their air filters and rarely had their HVAC ducts taken care of. Honestly, so many of their problems could have been solved by proper HVAC cleaning and annual service checks, then but, most people thinks they are immune to any HVAC problems. That is, until they have to call us for emergency help. The worst case I have ever seen was an older apartment building that we were called out to. When they placed the call for an appointment, they had to wait a full two weeks for us to get there. The moment the team walked into the building, we knew it was not going to be a fun task. The ductwork for the entire HVAC system was full of holes and split seams.. That was our first order of business, completely stripping the old and installing the new HVAC ducts. That job was huge and took several appointments. I knew then, based on how much it helped those clients, I wanted to do that job as a career.
