Alex likes listening to the older specialists talk about the early days in the industry.
- The world today is vastly different from the world of the 70s and 80s, and Alex wishes she could have experienced it.
Today life is so set in certain ways, operated by computers and large corporations. Back in those days, things were quite wild. It was commonplace for the Heating & Air Conditioning specialists to bring a cooler full of beer with them to the worksite. Can you imagine getting away with that today? But it used to be common! Today the Heating & Air Conditioning industry is as strictly regimented as the Domino’s pizza delivery system. Heating and Air Conditioning specialists are checked into work using computers all through the shift. That way using GPS the bosses always know where they are and what they are doing every moment of the day. Doesn’t that sound exhausting, having to account for all the hours of your day? These older specialists were outlaws of heating and cooling repair. Most of them didn’t even have a certification. The only way Alex can see this task becoming more fun is if she stops working for a major corporation and starts working for a local Heating & Air Conditioning business. Better still, she should start her own Heating & Air Conditioning company where she can be the boss and set her own rules. Alex wouldn’t let her work crews drink beer on the job, either, however at least she would be a cooler boss. This is a nice dream to have, but it takes a large amount of money to become an Heating and Air Conditioning business
