A Day in the Life of an HVAC Technician


6:00 AM – Wake Up Call

The day starts early for an experienced HVAC technician like myself. After a quick breakfast, I gather my tools and head out to the first appointment of the day.

8:00 AM – Routine Maintenance

The first stop is a regular customer in Bedford, VA, who needs their annual HVAC tune-up. I perform a thorough inspection of their system, checking for any potential issues and making necessary adjustments to ensure optimal performance.

  • Clean air filters
  • Check refrigerant levels
  • Lubricate moving parts
  • Test thermostats and controls

11:00 AM – Emergency Call

Just as I’m wrapping up the maintenance job, I receive an urgent call from a customer in Goode, VA, whose air conditioner has stopped working. I quickly gather the necessary tools and head over to diagnose the issue.

1:30 PM – Lunch Break

After resolving the AC issue, it’s time for a well-deserved lunch break. I grab a quick bite and recharge for the afternoon appointments.

2:30 PM – Installation Job

The next stop is a new construction site in Thaxton, VA, where I’ll be installing a complete HVAC system. This job requires careful planning and attention to detail, as I work closely with the construction crew to ensure proper ductwork and equipment placement.

5:00 PM – Wrap Up

As the day winds down, I make sure to document all the work performed and schedule any necessary follow-up appointments. Before heading home, I restock my van with supplies and prepare for tomorrow’s adventures in the world of HVAC.
