Interesting how we grow from amateurs to experts in our fields

I laugh and cringe every time I remember our afternoons as an apprentice in a local supplier that offered a/c service, but i was only 23 at the time and I guess I made every mistake in the book, there was this time I accompanied the a/c professional to a home where we were supposed to do an a/c repair service.

After inspection, our senior went to assure the homeowner that it would only take us a few seconds to finish working on the heating and air conditioning unit, however by the time he came back he found me staring at the component wide-eyed and I had to tell him I had shorted out the compressor, he was livid since he had made it clear that I was not to touch anything before he came back, this meant that the task would take much longer than it was supposed to before our interference, but during the training period, I found a/c installation to be the easier part since it was setting up the system using current a/c equipment.

It has been 8years now of being an a/c company and I have l gained so much more about a/c, it has become a second language. Gone are the afternoons where I could not diagnose an exhausting TXV during a/c service, right now I can even task on a commercial a/c without breaking a sweat. I have also seen the number of homes with a dial control component reduce over the years as people opt for more advanced options. Being a cooling system workman had its advantages, for instance, I installed a ductless multi-split in our home with the help of a colleague making the service charge zero.
