A Day in the Life of an HVAC Technician

Morning Routine

As the sun rises over the suburbs of Wheaton, IL, I prepare for another busy day as an HVAC technician at Mel-O-Air Heating & Air Conditioning Inc. After a quick breakfast, I double-check my tools and load up my van with the necessary equipment. The first stop on my schedule is a routine AC service call in Glen Ellyn.

On-Site Service

  • Upon arrival, I greet the homeowners and discuss their concerns about their air conditioning unit.
  • I perform a thorough inspection, checking the refrigerant levels, cleaning the coils, and ensuring the system is operating efficiently.
  • After completing the service, I provide the homeowners with recommendations for maintaining their system and answer any ductless HVAC questions they may have.

Lunchtime Break

With the morning service call completed, I take a well-deserved lunch break. I enjoy a quick meal while reviewing my next appointment – an AC installation in Glendale Heights. This job requires careful planning and coordination with the homeowners to ensure a smooth and efficient installation process.

Installation Project

  • I arrive at the Glendale Heights residence and meet with the homeowners to discuss their requirements and preferences.
  • My team and I begin the installation process, following all necessary safety protocols and industry best practices.
  • After several hours of meticulous work, we successfully install the new heat pump system, ensuring proper airflow and optimal efficiency.
  • We conduct thorough testing and provide the homeowners with instructions on how to operate and maintain their new system.

Wrapping Up the Day

As the sun begins to set, I head back to the office in Carol Stream to complete my paperwork and prepare for the next day’s assignments. Working in the HVAC industry at Mel-O-Air is both challenging and rewarding, as I get to help homeowners in Warrenville, Lombard, and surrounding areas stay comfortable and energy-efficient all year round.
