I decided I had enough of my low income about a year ago and switched gears to work in the HVAC field
When I was growing up I realized that I never wanted to be hurting for money. I had grown up in a poverty-stricken home and it was not a fun way to live. I didn’t appreciate it wondering if I would be able to eat on any given afternoon. As such, I didn’t want to go into any line of business that could be affected by an economic downturn. I wanted to be sure that I found a career which would always support me and my family with abundance. That’s why I went into the heating and cooling industry directly out of high school. I went to the local trade school and obtained my HVAC certification in less than 18 months. At that point, I thought that I was ahead of the curve because I had a professional career in the heating and cooling industry before the age of 19. However, I never could have guessed that residential HVAC repair and maintenance appointments would be so stressful and low-paying. It turns out, there are a lot of HVAC technicians in my town. When it comes to residential HVAC repair there are so many options that you don’t make a large salary as a specialized heating and cooling technician. I decided I had enough of my low income about a year ago and switched gears to work in the HVAC field. Today I work in Commercial heating and cooling repair and installation. I don’t have to compete with so many certified heating and cooling workers in the commercial sector and I make a much higher salary.
