When you are an HvAC technician, you are always going to someone’s house to work on their HVAC system.
As an HVAC tech, I know how much time I spend in people’s basement or in their closet working on the HVAC.
I learned the hard way that you need to leave your personal life at home. I have worked with a lot of HVAC technicians and if you want to last, you need to be able to focus on your job. I remember one guy who always had some kind of family crisis. His wife left him and took the kids and he was on the verge of a breakdown. He had to work for the HvAC company and he was having a difficult time keeping it together. He was really miserable and he if he wasn’t on the phone, he was texting, even while working on a furnace or air conditioning unit. When the owner saw what was having, he asked me to step in and work with him. I was there when he lost his cool and yelled at a customer. He was angry since he had just gotten off the phone. It was sad that he had to be fired because he was a good HVAC technician. He just couldn’t figure out how to leave his home life at home. I learned a hard lesson that day. I have never come to work and shared my problems, even with other HVAC technicians. It is easier to keep your life to yourself, no matter what job you are doing.
