A Day in the Life of an HVAC Technician

Morning Routine

My day begins bright and early at 6 AM with a quick breakfast and a strong cup of coffee. After gearing up in my service uniform, I load up my van with all the necessary tools and equipment for the day’s appointments. The first stop on my route is a residential home in Laguna Woods, where a client has reported issues with their air conditioning unit.

On-Site Diagnosis

Upon arrival, I greet the homeowner and get to work. After a thorough inspection, I discover that the AC unit has a refrigerant leak, causing it to operate inefficiently and struggle to cool the home. I explain the issue to the client and provide them with a quote for the necessary repairs.

  1. Locate and repair the refrigerant leak
  2. Recharge the system with the proper amount of refrigerant
  3. Test the unit to ensure optimal performance

Noon Break

After completing the repair, I take a quick lunch break and check my schedule for the afternoon. My next stop is a commercial property in Mission Viejo, where the building’s HVAC system needs routine maintenance.

Commercial Maintenance

At the commercial site, I perform a comprehensive inspection of the HVAC system, including:

  • Cleaning or replacing air filters
  • Checking and adjusting refrigerant levels
  • Lubricating moving parts
  • Inspecting electrical connections and components

Preventative maintenance is crucial for ensuring the longevity and efficiency of commercial HVAC systems, and I take pride in providing thorough and professional service.

End of Day

As the day winds down, I head back to the office to restock my van and complete any necessary paperwork. Being an HVAC technician with Just Right Service is a rewarding career, knowing that I’ve helped countless homeowners and businesses maintain comfortable indoor environments. Tomorrow, I’ll do it all over again, ready to tackle whatever challenges come my way.
