Once you learn how to repair and install HVAC equipment, you aren’t done learning.
Technology is constantly changing, especially in the HVAC service industry.
We are constantly trying to come up with bigger and better ideas to save money and energy. I am proud to work for a large heating and cooling company that services this region. I have been working for the company for the past three years and I have learned a lot during that time. When I first started, I was a young kid fresh out of school. I barely knew how to hold a screwdriver, pliers, and Hammer. It took me two tries to pass the HVAC certification test. I knew all of the information, but I was filled with anxiety and stress. I hardly remember the first test at all. During the second attempt, I’ve managed to score in the 7th percentile. It looked great on my applications when I started to apply for HVAC jobs. I had to start as an apprentice, and I learned a great deal during that time. I remember working on some ductwork one day when I was still a new employee. I was cutting sheet metal with a pair of pliers and I dropped the tools inside of the duct. They fell almost five feet and I could not reach them. I didn’t want to tell my coworker that I lost my tools, so I found a way to fetch my pliers. I used my tape measure, a magnet, a hammer, and my belt. If someone had seen me working, they probably would have laughed.
