But I honestly never imagined that I would be pulling up my tool belt to follow the family tradition of climate control installation and maintenance in the same sleepy town.
I don’t consider myself a fan of traditional values, or doing everything the way that it has always been done. I cannot grasp the point of perpetuating the same actions over time. Despite this, I find myself reporting to the local trade school this afternoon, with HVAC Quality Control textbooks in my bag. I did not wish to enter the same HVAC and air quality management training program that my father and grandfather graduated from. We have all worked in climate control, ever since my great-grandfather, who was a wood-burning gas furnace maintenance expert. Now, I have to admit that business is booming, and people will always need experts in HVAC and air quality control, so this is a lucrative job. But I honestly never imagined that I would be pulling up my tool belt to follow the family tradition of climate control installation and maintenance in the same sleepy town. I found that my previous dreams of becoming a lawyer were not going to happen, and I began to change my mind about the lowly HVAC biz a few years ago. When I noticed the air quality in my family home began to decline rapidly, I decided I wanted to understand the HVAC secrets that my family enjoys. I enrolled in the local trade school and was shocked when I actually made it into the heating and air conditioning maintenance program. I must say that I’m happy to start my first day as an HVAC technician in training.
