I thought it was the coolest thing ever when we had an HVAC professional come to our school during career week.
There were a lot of different professionals who came through, but this guy had the best sense of humour.
The other guys made their careers sound boring, and I actually fell asleep when the plumber was talking. But the HVAC professional even had the teachers laughing. I also learned a few things too. For example, when you are getting an A/C system for your home, you have to make sure the condenser unit is the right size. If you get something that is too powerful, it will cause short-cycling and wear out your system quickly. If your condenser unit is too weak, then it will keep running forever without reading the desired temperature control settings. I always assumed the bigger the better, but that’s not the case when it comes to HVAC systems. The work seemed so interesting and I wanted to know more. I actually asked a lot of questions and the HVAC professional came to speak to me in person because of my interest. He said that I was a bright young kid and I would always start working at the HVAC company and he would teach me more about heating and cooling repair. He even said the boss might consider paying for my schooling to become HVAC certified if he thought I had what it takes. I decided to go for it. Before I knew it, I had a job at the HVAC company and it was great getting to know all the professionals. Eventually I was able to get my HVAC certification and I make excellent money now as an HVAC professional.
