A Day in the Life of an HVAC Technician: Keeping Chicago Cool

Rise and Shine: The Life of an All Temp Heating & Air Conditioning Technician

As the sun peeks over the Chicago skyline, I’m already up and preparing for another busy day at All Temp Heating & Air Conditioning. My name’s Mike, and I’ve been working as an HVAC technician for the past five years. Today, I’ll take you through a typical day in my life, serving customers across the Windy City and its surrounding suburbs.

6:00 AM: The Early Bird Gets the Worm

I start my day early, checking my schedule and loading up my van with the necessary tools and parts. Today’s agenda includes an air conditioning installation in Bolingbrook, followed by AC repair calls in Skokie and Evanston.

8:00 AM: First Stop – Bolingbrook

I arrive at a residential property in Bolingbrook for a new AC installation. The homeowners are excited about their upgrade, and I walk them through the process. It takes about four hours to complete the installation, ensuring everything is properly connected and functioning.

1:00 PM: Lunch Break in Lincolnwood

After wrapping up in Bolingbrook, I head to Lincolnwood for a quick lunch. I use this time to check in with the office and confirm my afternoon appointments.

2:00 PM: AC Repair in Skokie

My next stop is a home in Skokie where the air conditioner isn’t cooling properly. After a thorough inspection, I identify a refrigerant leak. I explain the issue to the homeowner and proceed with the necessary repairs.

4:30 PM: Emergency Call in Evanston

Just as I’m finishing up in Skokie, I receive an emergency call from a customer in Evanston. Their AC has completely stopped working during a heatwave. I head over immediately to diagnose and fix the problem, which turns out to be a faulty compressor.

7:00 PM: Wrapping Up in Morton Grove

My final stop of the day is a routine air conditioner service in Morton Grove. I perform a maintenance check, clean the filters, and ensure the system is running efficiently.

8:30 PM: Heading Home

As I drive back home, I reflect on another satisfying day of helping people stay comfortable in their homes and businesses. Working at All Temp Heating & Air Conditioning has its challenges, but the sense of accomplishment and customer appreciation make it all worthwhile.

Key Takeaways from My Day:

  • Every day brings new challenges and opportunities to learn
  • Customer satisfaction is our top priority
  • Flexibility is crucial in this line of work
  • Continuous education is essential to keep up with evolving HVAC technologies

Whether it’s installing a new system or repairing an old one, being an HVAC technician at All Temp Heating & Air Conditioning means I get to make a real difference in people’s lives, one comfortable home at a time.
