A Day in the Life of a Heating Technician at Energy Services

Morning: Gearing Up for the Day

My day at Energy Services starts bright and early at 7 AM. After a quick cup of coffee, I check my schedule for the day. Today, I have three appointments lined up in Naperville and Wheaton, IL.

First Stop: Furnace Service in Naperville

8:30 AM: I arrive at my first customer’s home in Naperville. They’ve reported strange noises coming from their furnace. After a thorough inspection, I discover a loose belt that’s causing the racket. I quickly replace it and perform a full system check to ensure everything’s running smoothly.

Midday: Heater Installation in Wheaton

11:00 AM: My next stop is a heater installation in Wheaton. The homeowners have opted for a new energy-efficient model. I spend the next few hours carefully removing the old unit and installing the new one, making sure all connections are secure and the system is properly calibrated.

Afternoon: Emergency Furnace Replacement

2:30 PM: I receive an urgent call from our dispatch. A family in Downers Grove is without heat due to a failed furnace. I quickly head over to assess the situation. After determining that a replacement is necessary, I explain the options to the homeowners and proceed with the furnace replacement.

Evening: Wrapping Up

6:00 PM: As I finish up the emergency replacement, I ensure the new furnace is working perfectly. I take a moment to educate the homeowners on proper maintenance and energy-saving tips.

7:30 PM: Back at the Energy Services office, I complete my paperwork and prepare for tomorrow’s assignments, which include stops in Bolingbrook, Lisle, and Aurora, IL.


Working as a heating technician at Energy Services is both challenging and rewarding. Every day brings new problems to solve and opportunities to help our customers stay comfortable in their homes. Whether it’s a simple furnace service or a complex heater installation, I take pride in providing top-notch service to our community in the western suburbs of Chicago.
