Keeping Cool Under Pressure A Day in the Life


6:00 AM – The Early Bird Gets the Worm

The rhythmic buzz of my alarm jolts me awake. As an HVAC technician for Anderson Bros, my days start early, but the prospect of helping people stay comfortable in their homes and businesses fuels my motivation. I hop out of bed, grab a quick breakfast, and head out to the warehouse.

7:30 AM – Hitting the Road

After a brief team huddle, I load up my van with the necessary tools and equipment for the day’s air conditioning installation and repair jobs. My first stop is a residential home in Gibbon, NE, where the homeowners have reported issues with their aging AC unit.

9:00 AM – Troubleshooting and Repairs

I arrive at the client’s doorstep and immediately get to work. After a thorough inspection, I identify the root cause of the problem – a faulty compressor. I explain the issue to the homeowners and outline their options, which include:

They opt for a replacement, and I get to work on the installation process.

12:30 PM – Lunch Break

After a successful installation, I take a well-deserved lunch break. While enjoying a sandwich from my favorite local deli, I check my schedule for the afternoon and mentally prepare for the next job.

1:30 PM – Commercial HVAC Maintenance

My next stop is a large office building in Grand Island, NE, where I’m scheduled to perform routine HVAC maintenance. I meticulously inspect and clean the system, ensuring it’s operating at peak efficiency. Preventative maintenance is crucial for extending the lifespan of these complex systems and minimizing costly breakdowns.

4:00 PM – Back to the Shop

With the day’s jobs completed, I head back to the Anderson Bros warehouse to restock my van and prepare for tomorrow’s schedule. I take a few moments to update job reports and log any special notes or concerns for future reference.

5:30 PM – Clocking Out

As the sun begins to set, I clock out and head home, feeling a sense of accomplishment. While the days can be long and physically demanding, knowing that I’ve helped keep families and businesses comfortable makes it all worthwhile. I can’t wait to do it all again tomorrow!
