A Day in the Life of an HVAC Technician

A Day in the Life of an HVAC Technician

6:00 AM – Rise and Shine!

The alarm goes off, and I start my day with a hot cup of coffee and a quick breakfast. As an HVAC technician at Tom’s Heating & Air Conditioning, my days are always filled with new challenges and opportunities to help homeowners and businesses in the Bedford, VA area.

7:30 AM – First Stop: AC Repair

My first job of the day is an AC repair call in Goode, VA. A homeowner has reported that their air conditioning unit isn’t cooling properly. After a thorough inspection, I identify the issue as a refrigerant leak and proceed to repair it. Within a couple of hours, their home is cool and comfortable again.

10:30 AM – HVAC Installation

Next up is an HVAC installation project in Thaxton, VA. A local business has expanded, and they need a new system to accommodate their growing needs. I work closely with the building manager to ensure the new system is sized correctly and installed efficiently.

Lunch Break

Around noon, I take a well-deserved lunch break. It’s a chance to recharge and prepare for the afternoon ahead.

1:30 PM – Air Conditioning Installation

In the afternoon, I head to Forest, VA for an air conditioning installation. The homeowners have decided to upgrade their aging system to a more energy-efficient model. I carefully remove the old unit and install the new one, ensuring proper ventilation and airflow.

4:00 PM – AC Service

The final job of the day is an AC service call in Bedford, VA. Regular maintenance is crucial for extending the life of HVAC systems, so I perform a thorough inspection, clean the components, and make any necessary adjustments.

6:00 PM – Day’s End

After a productive day, I head back to the office to complete any paperwork and prepare for tomorrow’s challenges. Being an HVAC technician at Tom’s Heating & Air Conditioning is a rewarding career, and I take pride in providing top-notch service to our community.
