Do you think HVAC technicians get discounts?

My mother asked me if I thought HVAC technicians got discounts on HVAC systems and repairs? I didn’t know if they did, but I assumed they would at least get their services and installations done for free.

  • Two days later, she came home from work and had a pile of paperwork that she handed to me.

After explaining that we would fill them out after dinner, I glanced through them. Mom had brought home an application for HVAC classes and all the paperwork we needed to get help to pay for the tuition. I had never thought about going to HVAC classes after graduation. I had considered going to college, and then going to law school. I tried to explain this to her, but she pshaw’d me. She said she couldn’t foresee any of our family needing legal help, but everyone spent a lot of money on HVAC repairs, service, and new equipment. If I was going to do anything that could help our family and neighbors, it would become an HVAC technician. I couldn’t believe how her mind worked. I thought this was to be my decision, so I could have a career that would make me happy. After being reminded that she would have a vested interest in my career, I should make her happy. What would make my mom happy would be if I were to be an HVAC technician so she could have free HVAC work for the rest of her life. As much as I hated doing it, I filled out the paperwork that evening, and she took care of the paperwork for the school loan. I prayed I wouldn’t be accepted.
