I work as a certified heating and cooling specialist, but not just any old heating and cooling specialist.
- I am specifically an emergency heating and air conditioning worker.
By being an emergency heating and air conditioning worker I always almost have to work on weekends. That is when most emergency HVAC calls come in. The heating and cooling company that I work for did not have any openings for a regular heating and air conditioning specialist when I got this job, so this is where I ended up. I like it because I can be an independent HVAC contractor during the week. Then I close my HVAC business on weekends to work for the local heating and cooling company doing emergency HVAC work. It pays really well too because of it being on the weekend, and sometimes the odd hours I have to go and fix someone’s central heating and air conditioning system unit. Sometimes I even have to go in the middle of the night if it’s during the time of the year when there is extreme weather and someone’s heat and a/c products fail on them. Those calls I really am not fond of because I may be sleeping and have to go get dressed and go out in the freezing cold or super hot heat out of a deep sleep. But again, because the pay is good, I will always suck it up and deal with it. I do have some weekends off when another emergency HVAC specialist takes over.
