When I was a kid and I was thinking about what I wanted to do when I grew up I never in a million years would have thought I ended up as a heating and cooling technician. Now don’t get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with heating and AC workers. Their work is very important and should be recognized and appreciated. It is just that back then, I had so many different things that I wanted to be that becoming a heating and cooling worker just was something that never crossed my mind. At that age I hardly knew what a real heating and AC system was! All I knew back then was that when I was hot the house was magically always cold, even when it was hot outside. When it was icy cold during the winter months the house was always warm. I didn’t know and I didn’t care how it worked, as long as I was comfortable that was all that mattered to me. When I was a kid I wanted to be a doctor, a firefighter, a policeman, a superhero, and at one point a fly! Yes I wanted to be a fly when I was a kid so I could land on walls and spy on people. I was convinced I could too. The imaginations of children right!? But when I did become a grown up, life took me in a different direction than I had planned. It started when I was in high school and they had a woodshop program and I loved it. I loved it so much I still carve in my spare time. But it taught me how much I loved making and repairing things and eventually that led me to becoming the heating and AC specialist that I am today. The best part is I love my job and will not be retiring for a long time!
