I happen to work in the field of Heating & Air Conditioning professional and I truly care about my work. The thing is, my values don’t truly match my employer’s. The boss doesn’t seem to care much about helping people but just loves making as much money as possible. Rarely does he allow discounts for services and charges way too much for emergency repair rates. I always feel sorry for all these people who are stuck without heating in the midst of a snow storm, or are dying in the heat in the Summer heat.
I must always charge them these outrageous emergency fees since they have no choice but to pay because they were not able to get help from other Heating & Air Conditioning companies. The best thing I can tell people is to just be careful about your Heating & Air Conditioning system service. If you have an HVAC specialist come out at least once per year, there’s a great likelihood that your Heating & Air Conditioning equipment will last to the next year without any extreme concerns. I always tell everybody to change those air filters properly and this will prevent excessive dust and debris getting into the machine.
From what I’ve seen in our line of work, the greatest number of Heating & Air Conditioning system breakdowns is the lack of replacing the air filter. It’s odd how something so easy can be so detrimental to your Heating & Air Conditioning, but the air filters are designed to protect the Heating & Air Conditioning and your air quality. One of these days, I hope to run my own Heating & Air Conditioning business so I can offer people honest services as well as ultimately help the community.
