I always wanted to be an HVAC technician

I am pretty sure that I could fix just about any problem that someone could have with their furnace

I have always admired my dad. He was truly a great father. I don’t know who I would be today if it weren’t for him. I miss him so much. He passed away about four years ago, and there is not a single day that goes by that I don’t think of him. I can remember how much I wanted to be an HVAC technician just like my dad. My dad owned his own HVAC business, so I got to go with him on many service calls throughout my childhood. I absolutely loved going with him. I would cry for hours whenever I was not able to go with him on a call. Looking back, I feel bad for my poor mother who had to deal with me when I was upset because I could not go with dad to work. My dad taught me quite a bit about how furnaces and air conditioners work. I really did listen as he explained everything to me. When I got a little older, he would have me try to diagnose the problem with a furnace, and if I was right, he would have me explain how to fix it. It was so much fun! I was usually right about the problem; it was fixing it that was the hard part. My dad would always make sure that I understood what he was doing. He would explain each step that he took and let me know why he did it. I am pretty sure that I could fix just about any problem that someone could have with their furnace. He taught me quite a bit about air conditioners too, but for some reason, I don’t remember as much about air conditioners as I do about furnaces.
