One of the reasons why I decided to become an Heating and A/C worker is due to the fantastic salary and benefits, but heating and A/C workers acquire an average starting salary around $50,000 each year.
Heating and A/C repair workers can work in jobs that have benefits like medical, dental, and a retirement program! There are a lot of reasons for someone to become an Heating and A/C worker.
The best reason is money and job stability. I can literally move anywhere that I want and find a job particularly working in the heating or AC repair industry. The only thing that really holds me back is the fact that I am a woman man, and a lot of men work in the Heating and A/C industry and there are not a lot of ladies workers or supervisors. It’s difficult to get someone to take me seriously and half of the time the client questions my abilities. If there is a woman in the house, they want to know why a man was not sent out to do the work. If I tell someone that they need the Heating and A/C system replaced, they are 78% more likely to get a second opinion because I am a woman. I have had to deal with a lot of sexism in the industry, however I am thankful to finally be out on my own so I do not have to worry about these problems anymore. I started a commercial and residential heating and AC repair supplier and I focus on the small community where I live. I would rather be a big fish in a small pond than a small fish in a big pond infested with sharks.
