It’s great knowing how to work on your own equipment

The best section about being in the home repair industry is the ability to service your own stuff! Doing something all the time such as running in the sizzling sunlight can build confidence, but having confidence and building something as a habit is important…

Then I was used to working on air conditioning systems, pipes, electrical systems and roofs.

I used tools often and was used to getting sizzling and sweaty. I was certain I knew how to service our own air conditioning system and one afternoon it entirely broke. I was dumbfounded, I knew I just had it updated along with other appliances in our house. I had some things worked on and our neighbor who was another heating and A/C worker helped me double check some of our homes systems. I was confident in our abilities, after all it was our task. I started repairing the air conditioning system on a Thursday when a few of our friends and one neighbor came to watch a pigskin game. It took me 5 hours, and I couldn’t figure out this last part. I was shocked, I planned it with a pen and paper and I believe I might have rushed… My friends kept distracting me, and our attic was hot. I fixed the air conditioning system finally after our neighbor helped me, it was the next afternoon and I relented the night before out of frustration, but knowing how to do something is good. But be sure you follow the right steps and don’t let confidence get to your head! The best thing about having to work on home systems is you can service them on your own, but occasionally you need an additional eye or opinion when you work!
