Now, I am back to square one, and hoping that I can talk one of my technicians into going back to school and getting their HVAC contractors license
When I started my HVAC company I didn’t have certification. Most of the HVAC technicians that I hired had no certifications. I’m not saying that I didn’t think we should eventually have certifications but it just wasn’t important at that time. After six months of working for me, I was sending my HVAC techs to different types of school so they could be certified as AC specialists, heating specialists, or ductwork specialists. I wanted to make sure I had at least one specialist to cover anything that would come up in our HVAC company. The only thing that was missing for me, was someone who would be able to go into a home and help people decide what type of HVAC system would be best for their homes. I needed a HVAC contractor. Not being a certified HVAC technician, I thought this would be a good thing for me to get into. I looked into getting classes in becoming a contractor, and I actually took many of those classes. Unfortunately, being a contractor was not something I wanted to do. I only wanted to repair the heating and air conditioning systems. Now, I am back to square one, and hoping that I can talk one of my technicians into going back to school and getting their HVAC contractors license. I’m sure that I can get at least one of my HVAC techs to go back to school, especially once I tell them that I’m going to pay for it. Knowing that I have a tech who can measure houses, look at the property, and get the input from the customer and help them make a decision on what type of HVAC system they need will be a real plus for me.
