When I graduated from private school, I decided to follow my parents’ advice as well as learn a trade! So I signed up at a trade school to learn the Heating, Ventilation as well as air conditioning system trade, but the training was intense, lasting six months.
Upon completion, I was hired by an experienced HVAC company as well as gained lots of experience in electrical, heating, cooling, as well as ventilation systems, and after a few years, I decided to labor for myself. After a bit of advertising, I was called on my first appointment to repair a furnace in an old farmhouse. The elderly guy explained that his gas furnace wasn’t laboring as well as showed me how to get to his basement. As I went down the stairs, I could hardly feel my eyep. There was so much junk in the basement that I definitely froze in place for a few seconds while trying to take it all in. There were boxes as well as bags piled on top of one another, tables, chairs, Christmas decorations, garden hoses, toys as well as mattresses… I wondered how I was going to find the furnace, much less maintenance it. I finally could see where the pipes as well as air duct were poking out of the debris as well as climbed over the piles of items to get there. The first thing I did was to upgrade the air filter, which was honestly dirty, however next I serviced the electronic ignition system as well as realized that ignitor was bad. After replacing it with a new one, I was able to ignite the burner as well as waited long enough to check that the pilot stayed lit. The last thing that I had to accomplish was to find a way back to the stairs, which turned out to be the most challenging part of the entire repair call.
