The best work experience ever: Running heater maintenance for the furnace at the funeral home

Unlike my siblings and some of my friends, I had no issue walking through the cemetery that was near where we lived when we were kids.

There was a cemetery about three minutes from our house that was no longer being used.

I just thought that the cemetery was the bed for the ones who went before us. I would even play at the cemetery. At times when idle, I would walk around in the cemetery to read and age the names on the tombstone. When I grew up, I became an HVAC tech and my responsibility included handling heater/furnace installations as well as running tune-ups on boilers. The manager at the funeral home called the heating dealership to have the professionals check on the heater. The team I selected for the job was people who did not have any fear or misgivings about funeral homes. When we got to the funeral home, we started with the heater maintenance which revealed a dirty and clogged furnace filter with other components worn out. The funeral home had more than one heat and AC product including heated floors at the administration block. The electric heating system we were fixing was posing a challenge. I love jobs that pose a challenge to me because it helps me fully use my brain to find a solution. The heating repair took about six hours as we were brainstorming for a solution. The wireless thermostat was fixed and re-positioned as it was initially fitted in direct sunlight. Before leaving the funeral home, we shared an HVAC service plan with the management to help preserve and operate their unit. The plan was digitized which shows growth for the heating industry. In my opinion, it was the best job I have ever handled.
