My very first job was to instal a geo heat pump! I was so glad that I had a mentor with me to walk me through everything and show me how it’s done.
I just recently had my first day on the job as a certified heating and air conditioning specialist. I had just graduated from HVAC school the other month and was pretty quick in getting a job with a local heating and air conditioning company. My very first day was pretty darn difficult to tell you the truth! Being fresh out of HVAC school, I was not ready for the more complex kind of heating and air conditioning installation. My very first job was to instal a geo heat pump! I was so glad that I had a mentor with me to walk me through everything and show me how it’s done. I was expecting to go on general heating and air conditioning system repair or the installation of a central heating and air conditioning system! Having this complex heat pump stuff was something right out of left field! Then would you believe it? The next job right after that one was the installation of a dual fuel system! These were not things that were went over in the HVAC schooling I had. Sure, we touched on these things a little bit, but because they are not so common they didn’t give a full course on them! So again, it was like I was back at school while on the job. Finally, for the 3rd job I had right after this, it was to install a whole house full of radiant heated floors! This was beginning to scare me and make me reconsider the career choice I had made. Thankfully, this was a one off kind of fluke.
