The investment into the education required for an HVAC serviceman is not overly expensive.
My wife, Marie and I aren’t able to have children. At the time we got married, I was making enough money for Marie to stay at home. We expected to start our family right away. Marie hoped to take care of the home and kids. Now this plan needs to change. Marie no longer wants to be at home. She’s looking for something productive to offer her a challenge. We have been debating whether she should get a job or get back to school. I think she should take some college courses and maybe go for her teaching degree or try nursing. Marie didn’t like either of these ideas. She plans to earn her certification as an HVAC contractor. She has no knowledge of heating, cooling or air quality technology. I’m not sure where Marie came up with this idea. My wife told me that she’s babysat the HVAC professionals service the furnace and central cooling system. She thinks the operation of the heating and cooling equipment is fascinating and has seen firsthand that it costs us a fortune to hire a licensed contractor. The investment into installing or repairing a furnace, boiler, air conditioner or heat pump is super high. She is confident there will always be a demand for the upgrade, maintenance and service of heating plus cooling equipment. She could get a job anywhere across the country. The investment into the education required for an HVAC serviceman is not overly expensive. We won’t need to deal with student loans. She will complete the training quickly and should get hired immediately. Marie just recently started at an HVAC trade school, and she’s getting really good grades.
