Whenever possible, I actually entertained the thought of going to school to get my HVAC certification myself
I always think about my uncle whenever I change the air filters in our house. My uncle used to take me with him when he would go out to work on heating and cooling jobs when I was a kid. My uncle was my hero, and I wanted to hang around with him all the time back when I was a little boy growing up. He was always doing something fun, and he would take me with him when he would be on repair jobs around town. Not only did he like tinkering around with people’s cars, but he also worked full time as an HVAC technician.He worked for a local heating and cooling company for about 20 years. Just about everybody in town seemed to know my uncle, and it was like being with a local celebrity whenever we were out together. Sometimes whenever he had a job doing a furnace repair or an air conditioning installation, he would take me along with him. I ended up learning a ton about the heating and cooling industry because of my uncle. Whenever possible, I actually entertained the thought of going to school to get my HVAC certification myself. I thought about becoming an HVAC technician in his honor. Even though I did not end up going into the heating and cooling profession myself, I still think about my uncle a lot. He passed away almost 10 years ago now, but every single time that I change the air filter in my HVAC system, I think about him and smile!
