I work for a local heating and air conditioning company as one of their heat and a/c specialists.
Most days my job is the same.
I go from house to house and fix central heating and cooling units with the occasional heating and cooling system installation. However the other day I had a long job that took all day! Usually I have at least 10 jobs in the course of a work day, this day it was one. It was a commercial heating and air conditioning system at this huge office building that went down. On top of that it was a rooftop HVAC system. Repairing rooftop heating and air conditioning systems are harder than having to repair standard commercial heat and a/c units let me tell you! I had only worked on a rooftop HVAC unit once before and I remember it being tough, but not as tough as this one. On this one I had to replace a motor as well as do some rewiring of the HVAC unit itself. This was an all day affair. It was a good thing I had an assistant that day or else I may not have ever got out of there! I would have been forced to work overtime and this heating and air conditioning company does not pay us HVAC workers extra for that. We have a job to complete and we are stuck there until we complete it. I was so glad when this horrible day was done and pray that I never have to work on another rooftop HVAC again!
