Loyalty is earned – Keep working and building trust

It is not easy to gain a huge following of loyal customers unless there is something unique that makes you stand out.

The HVAC industry, especially, can be very demanding at times.

You need to actually have a loyal customer base if you are to make any money. It is one thing to be great at what you do but another to actually benefit from the work that you do. Trust is key to building this kind of relationship. Note that you will be getting into people’s private spaces and many treat their homes with some level of sacredness. It means that you should approach them with this in mind. They ought to feel as though they can trust you to help them overcome the challenges they are facing without necessarily interfering with their privacy. This takes time and can even happen if you are the kind of person that is nosy or too inquisitive. There is an unspoken code of conduct that you should follow at all times. Mind your own business and concentrate on the HVAC repairs, or system maintenance. The good news is that once words get out there that you are great and trustworthy, the rest will fall in place. I would advise any aspiring HVAC technician to mind their beginnings. Work hard to build an excellent reputation since this will be your saving grace in future. No matter how hard it seems at first, trt it as part of your training session. Chances are that you may not make so much at the beginning but once people learn to trust you to do a good job and not invade their privacy, the job calls will start flowing and you will be glad that you were patient.

How dad’s retirement affected the business success

This became an issue when dad retired and left the business

I have worked with my dad for years in the HVAC industry and have gained a lot of experience along the way. My dad has been a perfect mentor who started when the industry in our town was barely picking up. He had been here when people truly needed him and he was one of the few HVAC specialists that many people in our town could trust. I had always worked in his shadows for the twenty years that I partnered with him. Dad had worked for 40 years and would occasionally let me handle major projects such as commercial installations, like the air conditioning unit we installed at the mayor’s office. However, many of his old-time clients still felt that he was the voice and face of the company and many would not work with me without his authorization. Dad had tried to introduce me to the business and make me well known but it was difficult. Only the newcomers instantly accepted me because they did not know what to expect. Unfortunately, the largest clientele we had was the old-folk group. This became an issue when dad retired and left the business. I have heard to build a name for myself by convincing them that I can equally do what dad used to. Several times I even offered to deliver services with no pay just to convince them that I am great at what I do. Fortunately, slowly they have accepted this and are warming up to the idea of a different Johnson face.

My brother and I focused better once the window AC system was set up

My brother and I moved with mommy and daddy into our new digs.

The accommodation had 4 bedrooms.

Daddy and mommy were each going to have their own space, my brother and I were going to have our own room, and then the final one was going to be an activity room. Daddy and mommy concluded now was a great time to start new activities, so the vision was to fill this extra space up with all sorts of cool items that we would all enjoy as activities. Mommy took up pottery, daddy got a pool table and we decided to try to grasp the piano! Since daddy and mommy couldn’t afford a grand piano, our mommy came home with a keyboard for us to practice on in the activity room. My brother and I started trying everyday, as there were several songs we wanted to grasp. But, it wasn’t long before we started to identify a big issue. The activity room was too hot! My brother and I guessed this was because it had a big opening which let sun in, however even with the blinds closed, it was still somewhat warmer than usual. My brother and I were making excellent progress on the keyboard, however this was interfering with our focus. My brother and I told daddy and mommy of the issue, and they agreed to have a Heating, Ventilation and A/C proposal placed in the activity room for added comfort. Daddy and mommy started debating on which aircon to get, a portable Heating, Ventilation and A/C or a ductless mini split air conditioner unit. When they couldn’t decide, they asked a heating expert’s advice, and she suggested getting a ductless air conditioner. Daddy and mommy agreed and the ductless air conditioner was installed successfully. My brother and I didn’t have any problems focusing after that, thanks to the cooling system.

We got a ductless HVAC unit for the hobby space when it got too hot

We moved into our new apartment that had 4 rooms.

Mom and dad were each going to have their own bedroom.

I was going to have a bedroom too, and then the last room was going to be a hobby space. Mom and dad knew now was a superb moment to start new hobbies, so the plan was to fill this space up with all kinds of unique things that we can start as hobbies. Mother took up pottery, daddy got a pool table and I took it upon myself to learn the piano. Since we did not have enough money to buy a piano, mom and dad bought a keyboard for me to practice on in the hobby space. I started learning everyday, as there were multiple songs I wanted to master. Yet, it wasn’t long before I began noticing an extensive issue. The hobby space was really hot. I realized this was because it had a large window which let sun in. But, even with the blinds closed, it was still a tad bit warmer than usual. I was making immense progress on the keyboard. But, this was interrupting my concentration. I told mom and dad of the issue, and they saw eye to eye on having a HVAC system installed in the space for cooling comfort. Mom and dad started discussing which AC to get, a portable HVAC or a ductless mini break unit! When they couldn’t agree, they asked an AC specialist, and he recommended getting a ductless cooling system. Mom and dad were delighted and the ductless HVAC was installed successfully. I never had any problems concentrating after that, thanks to the new air conditioning.

The interest room was uncomfortable until my parents got a mini-split AC for it

My folks and I moved into our current property. This lake house had 4 rooms. My folks were each going to have their own space, I was going to have one room, and then the last spare was going to be an interest room. My folks agreed that now was a spectacular time to begin exploring interests, so the goal was to top this room up with all kinds of cool things that we all can begin trying out. My mom chose pottery, my dad purchased a pool table and I opted to try to learn the piano. Since my folks couldn’t afford a piano, my dad had a keyboard for me to practice on in the interest room. I started practicing daily, as there were numerous songs I wanted to learn. However, it wasn’t long before I began to identify a big issue. The interest room was really hot. I assume this was because it had a massive window which let sunshine in. But even with the blinds closed, it was still quite warmer than usual. I made plenty of enjoyable progress on the keyboard, but this was messing up with my focus. I told my folks of the issue, and they came together to have an aircon system installed in the room for cooling comfort.

Our wonderful friend replaced the AC in his business after many customer complaints

We are wonderful friends with a local supplier owner.

This guy owns a small refreshment store, which has all of the juices you could need.

We pass by to see him every month or so. Since all of us are wonderful friends, he typically gives us a few small juices for free, which is fantastic. We can recall a day when we were coming down to see him. We were surprised to see he had the door locked in addition to being closed, but we saw him and some other person in the building. When we knocked on the door he let myself and others in. We inquired what was going on and if everything was ok. To our relief it was. He was just having the ductless AC system replaced in the store. We were not aware he was getting the cooling system changed, because he never told myself and others it was having problems. He usually told us those things. The refreshment store owner told us the mini-split A/C method wasn’t having any trouble, however buyers were relentlessly complaining of the noise it made. Not only was the window cooling method absolutely loud, however it also had some stones inside of it or something. After he turned it on, it made a noise like pebbles were being thrown around freely in the machine. When he told us why he was having it updated, we could remember some incidents when buyers complained about the ductless AC. He told us he was getting the mini-split AC upgrade, but this was going to be a much nicer and less noisy model. The AC mechanic was going to finish that same day so the store would reopen the following one.

I did not know the snack shop owner was planning to purchase a new air conditioner

I am fantastic friends with a local business girl. The girl is the owner of a small snack store that has all the snacks anyone requires. I pass by her shop every day or so, plus since we are fantastic friends, she usually gives myself and others a few snacks for free, which is nice. One afternoon when I was coming by to see her, I was amazed to see she had the door locked plus she was closed, although I saw her and some other man in the building. When I knocked on the door my friend let me in. I talked to her about what was going on wondering if everything was ok. Delightfully it was. She was just having the window air conditioner set up in the shop. I was amazed she was getting the a/c set up, because she never told myself and others it was having problems. She always tells me about such matters. She told me the Heating plus A/C proposal wasn’t having issues only that people were always pointing out of the noise it made. Not only was the window cooling proposal easily loud, it also had gravel or pebbles inside of it or something. Every time it would start working it would make a noise like pebbles were moving around freely in the machine. When she told me why she was having it substituted, I could remember a few instances when people complained about the machine. She told me she was getting Heating plus A/C replacement, except this was going to be a much better plus quieter model. Because the HVAC specialist was going to finish soon, the shop would reopen promptly.

The sweet shop owner got a quieter AC system for his shop

A local corporation owner and I are good buddies.

The guy runs a small sweet shop, which has all of the sweets anyone could need. I go to see him every week or so, and because we are fine friends, he often gives me a few snacks without expecting payment, which is wonderful. One morning when I was dropping by to see him, I was astonished to see he had not opened the door and he was closed, yet I saw him together with some other guy in the building. I knocked on the door and he let me in. I asked my buddy what was going on and all was ok. Gladly it was since he was just having the window air conditioner updated in the shop. I was astonished he was getting the air conditioner updated, because he never told anyone it was having issues. He usually tells me such things. My buddy told me the aircon plan wasn’t having any faults. Only that customers were constantly mentioning the noise it made. Not only was the window cooling plan really loud, it also had some stones inside of it or something. Each day it would turn on and make a noise similar to pebbles flying around care-free in the machine. When he told me why he was having it updated, I could pinpoint a few times when customers had talked about the machine. My buddy told me he was getting the AC installation, except this was going to be a better and silent model! Since the air conditioner expert was going to finish the same day, the store would reopen tomorrow.
