A Day in the Life of an HVAC Technician: Keeping Chicagoland Cool

Rise and Shine: The Morning Routine

As an HVAC technician at R. H. Witt, my day starts early. I wake up at 6 AM, grab a quick breakfast, and head out to our office in Glenview, IL. The morning meeting is crucial – we review the day’s schedule and discuss any urgent calls that came in overnight.

First Stop: AC Installation in Northbrook

My first task of the day is a new air conditioning installation in Northbrook. The homeowners are eager to beat the summer heat, and I’m happy to oblige. I carefully unpack and set up the new unit, ensuring everything is properly connected and functioning.

Lunch Break in Highland Park

After wrapping up in Northbrook, I grab a quick lunch in Highland Park. It’s a great opportunity to recharge before tackling the afternoon’s tasks.

Afternoon: AC Repair in Glencoe

Post-lunch, I head to Glencoe for an air conditioner repair. The homeowner reports strange noises coming from their unit. After a thorough inspection, I identify a loose fan belt and promptly fix the issue.

Evening: AC Service in Winnetka

As the day winds down, I make my way to Winnetka for a routine air conditioner service. Regular maintenance is key to preventing future problems, and I take pride in ensuring each system I service runs efficiently.

Final Call: Emergency Repair in Wilmette

Just as I’m about to call it a day, an emergency call comes in from Wilmette. A family’s AC has completely shut down during a heatwave. I rush over and work diligently to get their system back up and running, much to their relief.

Wrapping Up: End of Day Reflections

As I drive back to the R. H. Witt office, I reflect on the day’s accomplishments:

  • 1 new AC installation
  • 2 AC repairs
  • 1 routine service
  • 1 emergency call

It’s been a busy day, but knowing I’ve helped keep Chicagoland cool and comfortable makes it all worthwhile. Tomorrow brings new challenges, and I’m ready to face them head-on as part of the R. H. Witt team.
