National HVAC Tech Day
Did you know there is a National HVAC Tech Day? There is.
With the days heating up, June 22nd is a perfect day for National HVAC Tech Day!
Why should we show appreciation for our HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning) Technicians?
Though a variety of home heating and cooling techniques have existed since ancient times, central heating and air as we know it was born in the early 1900's. New inventions like the residential air conditioner and advances in older technologies, such as the thermostat and blower-equipped furnaces, gave Americans greater control over their indoor comfort than every before.
This newfound power was more than a luxury; it shaped growth of the country. Sun Belt cities with triple-digit summer temperatures became much more attractive places to live and vacation, once AC was more widely adopted in the 1960's.
Today, many of us take the indoor comfort for granted. But it's the technicians who keep our HVAC systems running, day and night. If that's not reason enough to show them a little appreciation, here are few more:
Extreme conditions are just another day at the office for an HVAC hero.
A few hours without AC or heat may be uncomfortable for us, but imagine working in those conditions every day of the week! HVAC technicians tirelessly brave the sweltering heat and numbing cold to restore our comfort, often at the hottest and coldest times of the year.
They go everywhere you'd hate to be!
Crawl spaces, attics and all points in between - that's where you'll find an HVAC pro. Depending on the age and condition of the building, they may run into anything from dust, debris and cobwebs to pests, mildew and claustrophobically close quarters.
HVAC technicians can save you some green.
Want your next HVAC system to maximize your energy savings? An HVAC expert can help you choose the right equipment for your home's needs and your family's heating and cooling habits. He or she can even recommend different thermostat options that range from set-it-and-forget-it simplicity to real-time smartphone controls with power usage tracking.
The savings don't stop there! Regular maintenance, provided by your trusted HVAC technician, helps keep your system running at peak efficiency. That prevents energy waste and minimizes wear and tear that can shorten the life of your HVAC investment.
