6:00 AM – The Early Start

The alarm clock blares, jolting me from a deep slumber. As an HVAC technician at Air Mechanical, Inc., my days start before the sun rises. After a quick breakfast, I load up my van with the necessary tools and equipment, ready to tackle whatever challenges the day might bring.

8:00 AM – First Call

My first stop is a residential home in Erie, CO, where the homeowners have reported issues with their air conditioning unit. Upon inspection, I discover a refrigerant leak – a common culprit in AC breakdowns. With precision and care, I locate the source of the leak, repair the damaged components, and recharge the system with the proper amount of refrigerant.

10:30 AM – Commercial Maintenance

Next on the agenda is a routine maintenance visit to a local business in Boulder, CO. Preventative maintenance is crucial in ensuring the longevity and efficiency of HVAC systems. I meticulously:

  • Clean the coils
  • Replace air filters
  • Check electrical connections
  • Inspect ductwork

By keeping these systems in top shape, I help businesses maintain a comfortable environment for their employees and customers while reducing energy costs.

1:00 PM – Lunchtime Refuel

After a busy morning, it’s time for a well-deserved break. I swing by a local eatery in Lafayette, CO, grabbing a quick bite and recharging my batteries for the afternoon ahead.

2:30 PM – Boiler Replacement

My next stop is a historic building in Louisville, CO, where the ancient boiler system needs to be replaced. This job requires careful planning and coordination, as the entire heating system must be taken offline temporarily. With the help of my team, we carefully remove the old boiler and install a brand-new, high-efficiency model, ensuring the building will stay warm and toasty during the upcoming winter months.

5:00 PM – Final Stops

As the day winds down, I make a couple of quick service calls in Longmont, CO, and Niwot, CO. One involves troubleshooting a malfunctioning thermostat, while the other requires a simple filter replacement. These smaller tasks may seem routine, but they’re essential in maintaining the comfort and safety of our customers’ homes and businesses.

7:00 PM – Wrapping Up

After a long and fulfilling day, I head back to the office to restock my van and log my service calls. As an HVAC technician, no two days are ever the same, but the satisfaction of helping people stay comfortable and energy-efficient makes it all worthwhile.
