I work in the heating and air conditioning business.
But I work a little differently than others or what you would expect in the industry.
I am what’s called an independent heat and a/c specialist. Working as an independent heating and air conditioning specialist is where you have your own HVAC business but you are the only one there. In other words, you make the rules, the pay and everything. You work on your own hours and schedule. No one tells you what hours or days to work. Now naturally you will need to work within a reasonable time frame of what business hours are. But if you want to work in the evenings you can, while most heating and air conditioning companies would never do that. This can be an advantage with those hours for people who need heating and air conditioning system installations later in the day for instance. Most standard heat and a/c companies will not do heating and cooling system installations anytime other than crack of dawn in the morning. For many, this is a real inconvenience. Especially for those who have 9 – 5 jobs. That really makes it so they have to take the day off for a heating and air conditioning system installation. With me being an independent heat and a/c contractor, I offer heat and a/c installations later in the day to be more flexible with the customer. I make more money this way! I change about the same price as well. It’s all about doing your own thing.
