Events of a day in the life of a new contractor

Before joining the local HVAC business I was working for a privately owned business as a cooling specialist intern.

I later got a job at a local company.

My first day as a new contractor was very eventful. The day started with a meeting with my supervisor, he gave me the working gear I would need to attend to the job assigned. He also took me through all the protocols I am required to follow on the job. Afterward, he assigned jobs to the three available teams of cooling experts. The first job my team and I went for was to run a comprehensive air conditioner tune-up on a fairly new air conditioning unit. The process was seamless and I remember being requested to clean up the work area after we were done as this part of the job was for the newbies. As we were leaving, we received another job order from the office. Fortunately, the order was in a residence a few blocks away. The customer wanted us to replace a heat pump with a new mini split air conditioner. I had never really participated in an install before. I was very keen and even got to install the temperature control. Just like the previous time, I also cleaned our working area. We went back to the office after that job order was done. I felt super welcome when I discovered that we were all getting lunch on the company’s tab. Later that afternoon, we went next door to a tour and travel office to increase the indoor air quality. This time, I did the duct sealing and HVAC duct cleaning by myself. I also fixed the thermostat connected to the zone control. At the end of the day, I was super exhausted but content.
